Cloud Security Pioneers

At Orca, we’re not just innovators in the cloud security space—we’re creators of it. Our founders understood that modern computing technologies and the cloud required a re-architecture of security, so they set out to change the game.

Their vision turned into the industry’s first agentless cloud security solution, providing customers with comprehensive and lightweight coverage never seen before. With a patent for this revolutionary SideScanning™ technology, Orca pioneered the path for modern cloud security and continues on the path of innovation.

With our Unified Data model offering contextual security insights, as well as our platform approach to securing your cloud infrastructure, Orca revolutionizes security and leads the conversation at every turn.
