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.
Why are we called Orca Security?
Orcas are intelligent beings known for their sonar capabilities. With sonar, these sophisticated creatures scan wide areas with little impact on their surrounding environment. Similarly, our agentless SideScanning technology scans deep and wide in vast cloud environments to provide insights in a frictionless manner. Orcas also exist all over the world, and our solution spans globally. From the Americas to Asia Pacific to Europe, we support our customers in their cloud security journeys around the globe.
We’re United in Our Values
