Frictionless API security and visibility in the cloud

Orca‘s agentless API Security capabilities help organizations identify, prioritize, and address API misconfigurations and security risks across their multi-cloud environment. Within minutes, Orca provides organizations with a complete and continuously updated inventory of managed and unmanaged APIs, actionable data on API misconfigurations and vulnerabilities, and alerts on potentially risky API drift and changes.

Orca Security Provides Frictionless API Security in the Cloud

Incomplete Visibility

Monitoring APIs and related security risks across multi-cloud environments requires comprehensive visibility and continuous API discovery, but existing solutions dedicated to the protection of web traffic and APIs typically require agent-based or network-based controls to get deep visibility. The result is high maintenance costs, incomplete coverage, limited API inventory, scalability challenges and lack of wider cloud security context.

  1. 1

    Agent-based Solutions lead to blind spots, an incomplete API inventory, scalability problems, performance degradation and high TCO.

  2. 2

    API Security point solutions lack wider context on cloud misconfigurations, workload vulnerabilities, malware, lateral movement exposures or other risks.

  3. 3

    Maintaining multiple security solutions and correlate data leads to alert fatigue and missed alerts.

Our approach

Complete API discovery, posture management, and drift detection

Unlike other solutions, the Orca Platform provides security teams with a full inventory of APIs and related web domains in their cloud estate, as well as API-related security and compliance risks, without a single agent. Instead of viewing siloed API risks, Orca also considers other risks, including vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, malware, the location of sensitive data, and lateral movement risk, to effectively prioritize the API risks with the most danger to your cloud environment.

  • Comprehensive Coverage

    Have an extensive view of the API attack surface across your cloud estate, including newly added assets, without blind spots.

  • Quick and Accurate

    Fast and frictionless deployment - get an accurate API inventory in minutes without the need for agents, edge workers, or bringing in a vendor to analyze your logs.

  • Risk Prioritzation

    Orca effectively prioritizes risks by leveraging its insights into APIs as well as risks found in cloud workloads, configurations and identities, to understand which risk combinations pose the greatest danger.

Orca leverages its agentless technology and comprehensive insights into cloud workloads and configurations to provide security teams with a 360-degree view of APIs and related risks, effortlessly scaling as your cloud environment grows.
Multi-Cloud API Security With Continuous Visibility and Risk Management

Continuous API discovery and inventory

Orca’s API dashboard provides cloud and application security teams with an overview of all high-level API data and alerts. Orca’s API discovery is continuous, without the need for time-consuming agents, edge workers, or bringing in a vendor to analyze your logs.

  • Track and analyze your managed and unmanaged API assets, including applications, domains, subdomains, path groups, users, and API endpoints. 
  • Consult interactive API maps showing all API endpoints, requests, and server responses. 
  • Get a real-world picture of publicly exposed APIs with screenshots for quick in-app view.
  • Get answers to questions such as: “What assets are accessible from the Internet, and what do they expose? Or “How many API endpoints contain access to personally identifiable information (PII)?”

    API risk prioritization and compliance

    Orca scans your entire cloud estate and surfaces potentially hazardous API security risks—including alerts from the OWASP API Security Top 10—providing actionable data and remediation suggestions.

    • Prioritize risks and accelerate mitigation actions with severity scores and valuable context-based data such as the location of PII, API public exposure, and more.
    • Easily identify “what is externally exposed, that shouldn’t be?” with automatic suggestions.
    • Take preventive steps to reduce the API attack surface. Search for the risks associated with a particular domain or subdomain, or alerts over a particular time period.
    • Stay ahead of audits and adhere to common compliance frameworks like PCI-DSS with linked-alerts provided by Orca.

    API drift detection and management

    Orca ensures that potentially risky API changes and behaviors aren’t missed by security and governance teams. 

    • Continuously monitor API behavior and usage and alert teams to potentially unwanted API drift.
    • Easily track newly added and removed applications, domains, subdomains, API paths, and API operations on those paths.
    • Access a Swagger documentation view that can be used to easily compare intended API policy vs. current usage.
