The 10 Hottest Cloud Security Startups Of 2021

Michael Novinson

The 10 hottest cloud security startups include companies finding cloud vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, monitoring managed and unmanaged datastores, and identifying overprivileged users and incorrectly assigned permissions.

Orca Security

CEO: Avi Shua

Orca Security was founded in 2019, and in March and October closed $210 million and $340 million Series C funding rounds, respectively, to dramatically expand its identity and access management capabilities and bolster its alerting around attacks already in progress. The Los Angeles-based company employs 245 people, up 199 percent from just 82 employees a year ago, according to LinkedIn.

The company is focused on having its product natively spot essential risks from vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and exposed data as well as identify overprivileged users and incorrectly assigned permissions. Orca Security’s funding will also allow for investment in agentless, workload-deep, context-aware security and compliance for Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

Orca Security plans to integrate post-breach detection capabilities earlier in the lifecycle in areas spanning from Kubernetes, data discovery and vulnerability management to identity and access management and cloud posture management. Orca’s platform displaces a lot of cloud security point products by giving customers a broader set of cloud capabilities and insights in a single location.
