Explore the Orca Platform

With Orca, your cloud is simplified, transparent, and ready for anything.

The cloud is yours

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 build and deploy quickly and security teams to scale security at the speed of cloud.
In 2019, 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, including 2022 AWS Global Security Partner of the Year.
