OVERWORKED DEVOPS TEAMS?

Agent-based solutions don’t work in the cloud

Agents require tedious integration with each workload, limiting the ability of your already overworked IT and DevOps teams to move at cloud speed.

  • Gaps in coverage

  • Organizational friction

  • Performance hits

  • High total cost of ownership

Orca turns cloud security on its side

Secure all your cloud assets without agents using a radical new zero-touch approach. Fully deploy in minutes with 100% coverage, 100% visibility, 100% of the time.

Orca turns cloud security on its side

Introducing SideScanning

Agentless

Unlike parasitic agents, that sit inside your workloads, SideScanning collects data externally. With read-only access to the workloads' runtime block storage, Orca creates a complete risk profile of your cloud estate in minutes, not months.

Full visibility

Orca’s SideScanning allows you to achieve complete visibility and coverage without sending a single packet over the network or running a single line of code in your environment. The result: no downtime and no impact on workloads or users.

Unified data model

Unlike other solutions, Orca combines workload-deep intelligence with cloud configuration metadata to build a visual risk context map of your entire cloud estate to help you quickly discover all potential critical attack vectors.

Orca covers 100% of your cloud assets — now and in the future

This includes VMs, containers, and serverless, as well as cloud infrastructure resources like storage buckets, VPCs, KMS keys, and much more.

Orca even discovers and monitors idle, paused, and stopped workloads, orphaned systems, and devices that can’t support agents.

Near real-time analysis of everything contained in the workload

Orca accesses the bytes at the block storage level and reconstructs the workload’s file system – operating system, applications, and data – in a virtual read-only view. All this is done in near real-time and used for security analysis, without any performance overhead.

Multiple tools in
one platform

Orca delivers a single agentless platform that detects and prioritizes the most important security risks at every layer of the cloud estate for AWS, Azure, and GCP.
 
  • Replace multiple tools: Orca eliminates the need to deploy and maintain multiple tools by combining the core capabilities of cloud vulnerability management, workload protection, security posture management, and compliance solutions.
  • Comprehensive risk detection: Orca surfaces vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, identity and access management (IAM) risk, lateral movement risk, misplaced or leaked sensitive data, and much more.
  • Simplify security and compliance operations: Gain a holistic understanding of your security posture across your entire cloud estate from one single administration point without having to cobble together a bunch of disjointed tools.

Up and running in minutes

After a simple 30-minute, one-time deployment process and initial scan, you will be able to act on the most important security risks that you were previously blind to in both your workloads and cloud configurations.

Comprehensive risk detection

Within minutes, Orca surfaces the most critical security risks, including vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, identity and access management risk, lateral movement risk, misplaced sensitive data, and much more.

“Prior to Orca, we had maybe 18% vulnerability assessment coverage of our entire scope. Orca took us to 100% in less than a day”

“Orca told us we could have some visibility within 5 or 10 minutes, and I thought, ‘There’s no way.’ Well, I was wrong. They really did it and the SideScanning doesn’t impact anything our developers are doing.”

"I’ve been working with vulnerability assessment solutions for over 20 years. I even wrote a book on how to build a vulnerability management strategy. I’ve never seen anything like the Orca Security platform before. This product is a gem."

“Orca’s out-of-band approach isn’t so much a performance benefit as it is a people-process benefit. There’s friction and challenge in any organization when rolling out new technology. Ideally, you want a security technology that’s entirely within the SOC team’s control.”
