As cloud adoption continues to soar, so does the emergence of more cloud service providers, each offering unique value and services to organizations. According to the Orca Security Research Report, 55% of organizations reported using 3 or more cloud service providers. This diverse public cloud approach brings many challenges to security teams responsible for protecting such complex, multi-cloud environments. With each cloud provider having their own set of individual services, understanding how to manage the attack service and configurations of each can be a daunting task, and leave organizations with unforeseen risks.

Today, we are proud to announce that Orca Security has expanded coverage for Alibaba Cloud.
