Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)

Continuously monitor for cloud misconfigurations, policy violations and compliance risks

The Challenge

Traditional CSPM Isn’t Enough

Traditional CSPM solutions help organizations stay compliant and address cloud risks such as misconfigurations and overly permissive identities. However, a CSPM only covers one part of the attack surface, leaving cloud workloads, event monitoring, and sensitive data discovery out of the picture. Deep and wide coverage is essential.

Traditional CSPMs lack insight into cloud workloads, which means they cannot detect vulnerabilities, malware, data at risk, or exposed secrets.

Security teams must supplement traditional CSPMs with multiple siloed tools, which results in constantly having to switch consoles, duplicating efforts, and hindering consistency.

Siloed or ‘integrated’ tools lack shared context, resulting in contradictory alerts and ineffective alert prioritization.

Our Approach

Orca consolidates cloud workload, configuration, identity & entitlement security, container security, sensitive data discovery, and detection & response all in one platform across the entire SDLC. This Unified Data Model allows Orca to understand the full context of risks and recognize when seemingly unrelated issues can create dangerous attack paths. Leveraging these insights, Orca is able to prioritize risks effectively, reducing alert fatigue and ensuring that security teams stay focused on what matters most.

Receive alerts when security policy violations occur, such as misconfigured S3 buckets, Google storage buckets, KMS keys, Elasticsearch and RDS databases, and much more.

Leverage 1,300+ configuration controls across 10+ categories, including authentication, data protection, logging and monitoring, network configurations, Kubernetes configurations, and system integrity.

Instead of getting inundated with alerts, security teams can rely on Orca to prioritize the risks that endanger the company’s most critical assets so they can be addressed first.

Understand risks across your entire tech stack

Unlike other CSPMs, Orca also scans cloud workloads and identities to surface full insights into the risks across your entire tech stack. This enables Orca to understand which risk combinations pose the greatest danger, so your teams can address those first.

  • By scoring and prioritizing attack paths, security teams can focus on a much smaller number of dangerous attack paths versus sifting through hundreds of siloed alerts.
  • Orca presents potential attack paths in a visual graph showing the end target as well as detailed information on each step.
  • For each attack path, Orca shows which risks need to be remediated to break the attack path, further prioritizing issues for remediation if they break multiple paths.

Ensure cloud compliance

Another important CSPM function that Orca provides is ensuring that cloud resources comply with regulatory frameworks and industry benchmarks, including data privacy requirements. Orca unifies compliance for cloud infrastructure workloads, containers, identities, data and more – all in a single dashboard.

  • Orca checks cloud configurations and policies against more than 100 industry and regulatory frameworks, including Orca Best Practices and a wide range of CIS control benchmarks.
  • Unlike other CSPMs, Orca also discovers sensitive data in your cloud environment and notifies you when data, such as PII, is vulnerable through potential exploitation paths.
  • With this insight, Orca helps organizations prioritize data security and demonstrate their compliance with mandates such as PCI-DSS, GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA.

Query your cloud environment with ease

Orca enables teams to create their own powerful contextual queries to search and investigate cloud security issues and set up automated alerting and remediation assignments.

  • Write custom alert queries or leverage over 1,300 system queries available out-of-the-box.
  • An intuitive query builder tests and validates rules, and displays available attributes and commands – no development experience required.
  • Leverage Orca’s technology integrations to forward alerts to email, PagerDuty, OpsGenie, or Slack, automate ticketing with Jira or ServiceNow, and much more.

Quickly measure security effectiveness and benchmarks

The Orca Security Score allows teams to easily understand and communicate which risks need to be addressed to improve cloud security posture as well as track progress over time. 

  • The daily-updated Orca Security Score objectively measures your current cloud security posture relative to other Orca customers or business units.
  • Generate comprehensive one-off or scheduled cloud security reports, and automatically share through email, slack and other channels.
  • Create customized views of Orca’s Risk Dashboard to show pertinent cloud data according to each team or individual’s needs.
