Orca Security partners with Carahsoft

On March 28, Portland, OR-based Orca Security and Carahsoft Technology Corp. of Reston, VA announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Orca Security’s Public Sector Distributor, making the company’s innovative and award-winning cloud security and compliance platform more readily available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2) and National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint contracts.

“We are pleased to partner with Carahsoft as our premier distributor, and work with Carahsoft’s extensive reseller ecosystem to expand our presence in the public sector. Their dedication to serving the public sector is unmatched,” said Stephanie Donofrio, director of federal channels at Orca Security. “Carahsoft’s experienced team, coupled with Orca Security’s mission to deliver fast and effective cloud security, will provide the security needed to meet and exceed Zero-Trust Architecture mandates and ultimately secure our nation’s most important assets.”

The agentless-first Orca Cloud Security Platform provides 100% visibility and coverage, eliminating the blind spots, cost, organizational friction and performance hits associated with agent-based solutions. With no agents to install, Orca deploys in minutes, and in less than 24 hours provides a complete understanding of an organization’s cloud risk and compliance posture. The Orca Platform has achieved the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) ‘In-Process’ status and is listed on the FedRAMP Marketplace.

Orca’s FedRAMP ‘In Process’ status enables U.S. federal government agencies to deploy the Orca Platform to meet objectives, CMMC and other regulatory and statutory requirements and align with Executive Order 14028 “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity,” OMB M-22-09 “Moving the U.S. Government Toward Zero Trust Cybersecurity Principles” and OMB M-22-18 “Enhancing the Security of the Software Supply Chain through Secure Software Development Practices.”

“By adding Orca Security’s solutions to our cybersecurity portfolio, we can now provide a valuable, agentless-first cloud security experience to the public sector,” said Alex Whitworth, cybersecurity solutions vertical executive at Carahsoft. “Through collaborating with Orca Security and our reseller partners, we empower agencies with visibility and compliance across complex multi-cloud environments and support the government’s efforts to procure and deploy the most advanced cybersecurity solutions available.”
