In recent years, it has been almost impossible for one month to pass by without some new cloud security issue being discovered that could potentially harm millions. In many cases, these very issues were found by hackers and reported after the devastation took place. Orion Software & Services (SAS), a provider of innovative world-class cyber security solutions for households and businesses, shook hands with PerfectCloud Corp., a provider of enterprise-class identity and access management (IAM) solutions as well as cloud storage security software, to form a strategic partnership with the aim of addressing this overwhelming problem sweeping businesses of all sizes across all industries.
As part of this partnership, Orion SAS will resell PerfectCloud's solutions to its customer base in the United Kingdom. "We are absolutely thrilled to have agreed to a UK distribution agreement with PerfectCloud," said Simon Cairns, managing director of Orion SAS. "Orion sees this as an indispensable addition to the services we already supply and we believe that with PerfectCloud, we can address some of the biggest issues that SMEs, individuals and large enterprises are facing with cyber crime."
To Orion SAS, the needs of individuals and small businesses come first. The rationale behind this is, as Cairns puts it, "Most big companies have some form of protection and the budget to increase this. There are two-factor authentication and biometrics solutions out there that may cost millions, which aren't readily available to the majority of businesses out there. We see PerfectCloud as the perfect partner to offer real security where it matters and deliver it to individuals, small businesses and large organizations with and without large security budgets." As part of the launch in the UK, the first 50 registrations for PerfectCloud's services through Orion SAS will also receive a 3-month free trial for the software.
PerfectCloud's SmartSignin provides businesses of all sizes the ability to manage their online identities and conveniently log in automatically to multiple services by selecting the appropriate provider's icon. Its zero-knowledge architecture, advanced auditing, and simple fluid interface makes it easy for less-versed individuals to navigate the world of single sign-on technology. SmartCryptor, the second product in the PerfectCloud suite, provides users with an extra layer of strong encryption to prepare files for secure cloud storage. Both of these tools work in unison to provide an environment that locks away predators from businesses that value their digital possessions.
