Orca Security provides a cloud security solution that aims to quickly analyze all cloud assets and find risks, without per asset integrations or agents. In May, the Los Angeles-based startup raised a $20 million Series A funding round. The investment was led by GGV Capital with participation from YL Ventures and Silicon Valley CISO Investments.
The company was founded in 2019 by former Check Point executives Avi Shua and Gil Geron to deliver full-stack IaaS and PaaS cloud security visibility. Orca says its SideScanning technology can be deployed instantaneously without the impact and complexity of per asset agents.
Orca's technology automatically assesses the security state of every discovered asset throughout the entire technology stack, including the cloud control plane, operating system, applications and business data -- ultimately delivering complete visibility into issues such as vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations and password issues, according to the company.
