CYFIRMA and Orca Technology Team Up to Help Fight Cybercrime

CYFIRMA’s core platforms, DeCYFIR and DeTCT, will equip organizations with actionable intelligence on the external threat landscape ensuring their cyber posture is ready to meet emerging threats.

Sydney, Australia, February 20, 2024 — As part of its market expansion plan, CYFIRMA, a leading external threat landscape platform company today announced a partnership with Orca Technology, a cybersecurity-focused distributor with an extensive ecosystem of hundreds of resellers. The partnership aims to deliver CYFIRMA’s core external threat landscape management and digital risk monitoring platforms to Australian businesses empowering them with the capabilities to predict cyberattacks targeting them.

With the global threat landscape becoming increasingly complex, many governments are fighting cyberwars with odds stacked against them. According to the Annual Cyber Threat Report by the Australian Signals Directorate, the number of attacks has increased 23% from the year before and the average damage from cybercrime increased 14%. CYFIRMA and Orca Technology are collaborating to bring an innovative approach to help Australian organizations turn the tide on cybercrime. Instead of relying on conventional cybersecurity strategies and controls, CYFIRMA and Orca Technology will bring an ‘outside-in’ view where organizations can see through the hacker’s lens and start using predictive intelligence to mitigate risk. CYFIRMA’s unique approach of uncovering risks and threat indicators at the planning stage, versus the execution and exploitation phase of a cyberattack, allows defenders to stay ahead of cybercriminals.

CYFIRMA’s external threat landscape management platforms, DeCYFIR and DeTCT, will provide advanced threat monitoring and analytics to help defenders establish effective controls around the organization’s most sensitive assets and balance the need to reduce risk while enabling frictionless access to digital services.

DeCYFIR is the industry-leading external threat landscape platform that equips governments and businesses with tailored intelligence specific to their industry, geo-location and technology used, and gives clients multi-layered intelligence that includes strategic, management and operational insights. The platform automatically connects the dots between threat actor, motive, campaign and method to predict cyberattacks. With DeCYFIR, defenders receive comprehensive insights on attack surfaces, vulnerability intelligence, brand intelligence, digital risk discovery and protection, third-party risk and cyber-intelligence on a single pane of glass.

DeTCT is the cutting-edge digital risk protection platform that identifies and monitors for vulnerabilities and potential attack vectors, data leaks and breaches as well as the risks posed by third parties. DeTCT protects brand and reputation by detecting copyright infringement and identity theft.

“When you look at the sheer number of data breaches and cyberattacks, it’s clear that organizations need a different strategy to fight the unseen enemy. What’s needed is a new approach where an organization has the ability to identify impending attacks and rapidly deploy mitigation tactics on the fly to stop an adversary in their tracks,” said Mike Henry, Chief Technology Officer at CYFIRMA. “We are excited to partner with Orca Technology, and together we shall work towards helping the government and businesses build greater agility to detect threats and expedite remediations, contributing towards making Australian cyberspace safer for businesses and citizens to live, work and play.”

“Having a platform that can automate the monitoring of your corporate cyber reputation, attack surface exposure and your end-to-end supply chain risk is a game changer. Actionable insights that are derived from this telemetry will benefit anyone concerned about their data being on the dark web or vulnerable corporate assets exposed on the internet. The IT Channel in Australia and New Zealand is primed for CYFIRMA as it will provide a competitive advantage to the way they do business.” Said Craig Ashwood, General Manager of Orca Technology.
