Cloud security unhindered. Move at the speed of cloud.

Security transformed for the cloud

CheckPoint’s chief technologist and seven senior architects had a revolutionary vision for cloud security: one that dramatically simplified and automated security and compliance, enabling development teams to become unhindered and security teams to move at the speed of cloud.

In 2018, that vision became a reality as the founders built the only agentless, cloud-native security platform. Since then, Orca has been awarded many industry recognitions culminating in the 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor for Cloud Security Posture Management.
