About Orca Security

Designed for organizations operating in the cloud who need complete, centralized visibility of their entire cloud estate and want more time and resources dedicated to remediating the actual risks that matter, Orca Security is an agentless cloud Security Platform that provides security teams with 100% coverage across their entire cloud environment.

Instead of layering multiple siloed tools together or deploying cumbersome agents, Orca combines two revolutionary approaches - SideScanning, that enables frictionless and complete coverage without the need to maintain agents, and the Unified Data Model, that allows centralized contextual analysis of your entire cloud estate. Together, Orca has created the most comprehensive cloud security platform available on the marketplace.


Key benefits of Orca Security

Rapid time to value:
By reading your cloud configuration and workloads’ runtime block storage out-of-band without agents, Orca deploys in minutes - surfacing the most critical risks without the performance impact, organizational friction, coverage gaps and operational costs of agent-based solutions.

Multiple tools in one:
As a CNAPP, Orca simplifies cloud security by replacing multiple tools with a single SaaS-based cloud security platform for workload protection (CWPP), cloud security posture management (CSPM), cloud infrastructure entitlements management (CIEM), including vulnerability management and compliance solutions.

Prioritize the 1% of alerts that matter:
Unlike other tools that operate in silos, Orca sees the big picture and prioritizes risk based on context, eliminating wasted time sifting through meaningless alerts and enabling you to focus on the 1% of truly critical issues.

Deploy once, secure forever:
Orca automatically detects and monitors new cloud assets as you add them, without requiring any manual updates.

Detect risks missed by other solutions:
Unlike other solutions, Orca leverages context-aware intelligence to recognize when seemingly unrelated issues can be combined to create dangerous attack paths leveraging lateral movement.

Instant ROI:
Orca eliminates countless IT hours spent installing and maintaining agents and sifting through thousands of low risk security alerts. By consolidating multiple tools in one platform, Orca increases efficiency and effectiveness and reduces licensing costs.

Faster time to market:
By integrating security and compliance into any CI/CD process, security gains control over the software development lifecycle while DevOps benefits from integrated security as part of their workflows.

Orca - Scan from the side, 0 user impact

We switched to a custom Linux Kernel that agent based VMS could not support. Orca was the only solution that we found that could solve our use case.

Pros

Orca is an agentless approach to VMS. This means there is 0 user impact or performance degradation. Your Operations team does not have to manage agent roll out, it also does not need to manage upgrades/downtime. This saves you operating costs and allows your Ops team to focus on other security items.

Orca is OS agnostic, it does not matter what your development/architecture team decides to pivot to. Orca supports Windows/Linux/Mac/Containerization. It also is Cloud agnostic, have subs in Azure or AWS? Orca can handle them all with a few clicks.

The entire roll out took around 10 minutes.

Cons

There are features missing in Orca from a nice to have stand point. The product is fairly new and a lot of these enhancements are being worked on. The Orca team has been very responsive to enhancements thus far.

Product Integration - It's as easy as they sell it. I had it up and running in multiple accounts in no time.

Support - Wonderful support and leadership team that cares about their customers.

Open API - Rich and open API that allows you to extend and build on top of the product.

Pros

The extensibility of the product, and how rich the API is. I can find out almost anything about my environment. Using Orca gives me insight into my entire cloud sprawl. I can get information about malware, open-ingress to EC2 instances, and open source vuln management. The only limit to its use is imagination.

Cons

Creating new alerts can be clunky. However, the Orca team is always improving and is currently working on a V2. Navigating the UI can be a bit of a challenge at times when looking for specific info. This is why I often opt for using the API over the UI.

Harmony Email & Collaboration

Reasons for Switching to Orca Security

I ended up choosing Dome9 because it's feature-rich, but bells-and-whistles light. It provides to me the most salient alerts and alarms, while not making too much noise. A lot of competitors' products are very opinionated, which can force a security organization to shape their processes around the tool. With Orca it's the opposite, the tool is powerful, lightweight and malleable.

I have enjoyed the Orca security in the sense that it gives in-depth details of vulnerability, attack path, security posture among many others

Pros

It is a reach platform which provides us with comprehensive security tooling features.

Cons

The only part I have reservations about is the shift-left aspect whereby there is no known IDE extension for the CLI

The first step to increase the security posture of an environment is to understand it. Orca Security instantly gave me that visibility without the hurdles of an agent.

Pros

The ability to get quick visibility into the cloud assets without going through the technical hurdles of deploying an agent.

Cons

I think the UI could use a bit more improvement. I've been using this software for 6 months and not everything is intuitive. I still forget where things are exactly.

We were trying to solve container security challenges. Actively monitoring what is going on within container. Benefit of agent less solution is two fold, 1) Do not have to install agents on the host machine. 2) Effective in monitoring workloads running in managed containers.
Orca security, ability of side-scanning technology examines block storage out of band via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform.

Pros

Agent less no installation required. Simple 3 step process to connect account and start monitoring. Extensive deep insight into installed packages within container. Clear categorization of alerts as Imminent compromises, Hazardous, Informational with color coding for clear visibility. Also builds digital asset inventory for tracking different types cloud based assets ex: S3 buckets, EC2 instances. Easy to connect multiple accounts across AWS, Azure, GCP.
Under Vulnerability management some of the key features to highlight are Asset Discovery, Asset Tagging, Network Scanning, Patch Management,Vulnerability Assessment,Web Scanning, Risk Management and Policy Management.
Couple of the key cloud security features to highlight are Endpoint Management,Threat Intelligence,Vulnerability Management,
Intrusion Detection System, Behavioral Analytics, Encryption and Application Security. Ease of integration was one of the reason to consider Orca security solution.

Cons

Reporting and user interface are immature, but improving, not real time. This is near real time solution depends on frequency of scanning. VM specific details if consolidated as actionable insights will be very helpful to narrow our focus to relevant issues (ex: identified affected packages within a container is great, giving link to specific patches will be very helpful.
