Orca’s Agentless Cloud Security Whitepaper
Reinventing Security for the Cloud
Last-generation security tools, such as host-based and network vulnerability scanners, were not designed for the cloud, but for the slow-changing legacy world of yesterday. They rely on deployment modes such as host-based agents and network access—outdated operational models that are completely at odds with the core “speed and agility” principles of cloud computing.
Even newer cloud point solutions, such as cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP) and cloud security posture management (CSPM), suffer from similar challenges. Organizations attempting to use legacy formats and point solutions in the cloud quickly realize their limitations such as complex deployment, difficult management, incomplete and shallow coverage of workloads, performance degradation, and high total cost of ownership (TCO).
Orca Security introduces a revolutionary single platform solution for cloud security that covers all assets across your cloud estate, delivers prioritized alerts in context, and helps you to meet compliance mandates. Orca is the only vendor that effectively prioritizes alerts using a holistic unified data model that combines workload data (vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, malware, file integrity monitoring), threat intelligence, and environmental context (accessibility, potential business impact). Built specifically to help secure AWS, Azure, and GCP environments, Orca dramatically simplifies security deployment and management, closes visibility gaps, eliminates performance degradation caused by agents, and reduces TCO.
