Orca Security Lands $55 Million Series B to Further Disrupt the Cloud Security Industry with Touchless, Deep, Context-Aware Security and Compliance
Funding to Further Transform Cloud Security for Global Enterprises Looking to Leverage AWS, Azure, and GCP to Accelerate Digital Transformation
While competing cloud security solutions were built for on-prem environments, Orca Security was born in the cloud for the cloud. Orca treats each customer’s cloud estate as an interconnected web of assets, prioritizing risk based on the underlying security issue combined with environmental context, including its accessibility and potential damage to the business. This context also helps to reduce thousands of security alerts to the critical few that matter, along with their precise path to remediation.
“Cloud security is fundamentally broken. Practitioners are forced to waste their time installing and maintaining security agents instead of managing actual security risks,” said
This unique ability is achieved using Orca Security’s patent-pending SideScanning™ technology, which reads the cloud configuration and workloads’ runtime block storage out-of-band to detect vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement risk, weak and leaked passwords, secret keys, unsecured PII, and more. Orca Security has created the first cloud security solution that can meet these needs without agents or per asset integration, gaining full coverage literally within minutes.
