Today’s security leaders face a diverse set of challenges in the cloud. Their teams are responsible for preventing data breaches, ensuring identity and access is managed properly, protecting PII, and managing vulnerabilities – just to name a few of the top concerns.
Simultaneously, security teams are faced with navigating a complexity of new cloud security requirements. Cloud environments are constantly changing, and often, security teams find it difficult to integrate security into developer and DevOps workflows.
Yet, Orca Security continues to be solely focused on ensuring teams can scale securely in the cloud, while embedding security across the application lifecycle to achieve strong security outcomes.
A 2023 Leader in Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)
In the 2023 GigaOm Radar Report for CSPM, the firm evaluated 10 vendors for their ability to identify risks and compliance in cloud infrastructure as well as adjacent architectures and applications.
We’re proud to have Orca Security recognized as a Leader in the report.
Orca Security is shown as a Leader within the center ring of the above diagram. This leadership recognition is driven by Orca’s patented SideScanning technology and the Unified Data Model. With SideScanning, teams understand both cloud platform configurations as well as corresponding workload vulnerabilities and configurations without the need to deploy agents or configure scanners–thus, drastically improving time-to-value and gaining wider context into the cloud environment. All of the data Orca identifies is then brought into a single data location, called the Unified Data Model, where teams can quickly and easily query the data.
Importantly, Orca was also recognized as an Outperformer based on our Strategy and Pace of Innovation. We were one of only two the only Leaders to earn this positive designation.
According to GigaOm, Orca’s leadership was based on the following strengths:
“Orca’s innovations in the cloud security space, from SideScanning to the unified data model, provide practical security for the cloud. Its recent partnership with ThreatOptix expands its workload capabilities to match those who have previously led in that regard.”
Orca received top marks for Large Enterprise customers, Multicloud Support, AI-Driven Analysis, Automated Remediations, Licensing, and Data Controls & Security. The report also praised Orca’s patented SideScanning technology.
