Rick Whiting

Businesses and organizations today are under constant threat of cyberattack. As part of CRN’s Emerging Vendors for 2022, here are 56 security startups, founded in 2016 or after, that solution providers should be aware of.

Orca Security

Founded: 2019

Top Executive: Avi Shua, Co-Founder and CEO

Orca Security has been among the most visible cybersecurity startups in recent years with its cloud security platform that utilizes sidescanning technology to rapidly detect and prioritize cloud security risks.

The Orca platform performs a broad range of security tasks including vulnerability management, malware detection, cloud attack detection and response, misconfiguration remediation, identity and access management, and sensitive data detection. The company’s “shift left security” capabilities are designed to identify and prevent cloud application security issues earlier in the development cycle.

Orca, based in Portland, Ore., acquired web application security company RapidSec in January. In October 2021 the company announced a $340 million extension of its initial Series C round of $210 in March 2021.
