New API visibility and security capabilities empower security teams to discover and map their entire API estate and reduce API exposure risks with a 360-degree view of issues in the Orca Platform
PORTLAND, OR – October 18, 2022 – Orca Security, the pioneer of agentless cloud security, today announced the industry’s first agentless API Security solution to secure customers against more cloud risks with its unified Cloud Security Platform. The new capabilities provide full inventory of external APIs, API security posture, and API drift detection, allowing security teams to identify, prioritize, and address API-related risks and misconfigurations across cloud environments.
According to Gartner, “API security challenges have emerged as a top concern for most software engineering leaders, as unmanaged and unsecured APIs create vulnerabilities that could accelerate multimillion dollar security incidents.1” With new API Security capabilities, Orca Security accelerates its mission of providing complete visibility and coverage of cloud risks through its comprehensive platform offering.
“APIs are an increasingly attractive vector for cyber attackers,” said Avi Shua, co-founder and CEO of Orca Security. “Until now, security teams have been forced to rely on network and agent-based point solutions, which lead to blind spots, scalability problems, performance degradation, and high TCO. New API Security capabilities continue our commitment to innovation, satisfying evolving customer needs with 100% visibility into both managed and unmanaged APIs, combined with deep insights into additional cloud data. Opposed to API Security point solutions, Orca paints the big picture, allowing customers to understand the relationship between API weaknesses and other existing cloud risks just like an attacker does, and prioritize accordingly.”
Orca Security leverages its patented SideScanning™ technology and comprehensive insights into cloud workloads and configurations, as well as dynamic public endpoint scanning to provide security teams with a full inventory of APIs and their security posture. By combining detected weaknesses in APIs with other risks found in cloud environments, such as vulnerabilities, malware, asset and identity misconfigurations, and potentially exposed PII, customers gain the necessary context to understand which API risks are most critical. Key features and benefits of new API Security capabilities include:
