PORTLAND, OR – August 22, 2022 – Orca Security, the cloud security innovation leader, today announced that the Orca Cloud Security Platform has won the 2022 SC Trust Award for ‘Best Cloud Security Posture Management Solution’. The announcement was made today, as part of SC Media’s 2022 SC Awards coverage. The industry awards program is cybersecurity’s most prestigious and competitive program, recognizing the solutions, organizations, and people driving innovation and success in information security.
“We’re thrilled that the SC Awards judges have named Orca Security as the winner in the Cloud Security Posture Management category,” said Avi Shua, CEO and co-founder of Orca Security. “We see this as important validation that Orca’s agentless platform is enabling organizations to get fast, deep, and wide cloud security coverage at every layer of their cloud environment – without the blind spots and other drawbacks of agents. Orca’s unique contextual insights enable it to understand which risks can be combined to create dangerous attack paths and prioritize accordingly, so teams can remediate strategically instead of being inundated by low priority alerts. We look forward to further expanding and improving our platform so companies can continue to operate in the cloud with confidence”.
Now in its 25th year, the 2022 SC Awards were the most competitive to date, with a record 800 entries received across 38 categories, expanding its recognition program to include several new award categories that reflect the shifting dynamics and emerging industry trends. Trust Award winners were selected by a world-class panel of cybersecurity leaders from sectors including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, consulting, and education among others.
“The last year brought distinct challenges for the customer community, who are still struggling to manage the impact of the pandemic while transitioning to a new security standard,” said Jill Aitoro, senior vice president of content strategy at CyberRisk Alliance and editor in chief of SC Media. “Winners of our Trust Awards answered the call by delivering technology that could help manage the evolving threat landscape.”
