Bitdefender, an international cybersecurity firm, has broadened its cyber defense capabilities with the strategic acquisition of Horangi Cyber Security, based in Singapore. With the rapid growth in multi-cloud adoption, the partnership seeks to address the escalating challenges organizations face in managing configurations, permissions, and entitlements, as underscored by Bitdefender’s CEO, Florin Talpes. Horangi, known for its robust Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solutions, has solidified its presence in the Asia Pacific. Its offerings are available on major platforms, including Google Cloud, Huawei Cloud, Amazon Web Services Marketplace, Alibaba Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. By incorporating Horangi’s expertise, Bitdefender plans to enhance its GravityZone security platform, paving the way for innovations in cloud security governance and compliance. This acquisition also signals the integration of Horangi’s seasoned professionals into Bitdefender’s team, strengthening its managed detection & response (MDR) offerings for global enterprise clients.
