10 Best Cyber Security Companies 2021
Cloud security, also known as cloud computing security, is a collection of security measures designed to protect cloud-based infrastructure, applications, and data. These measures ensure authentication of users and devices, access control for data and resources, and protection of data privacy. They also support data regulatory compliance. Cloud security is critical, since most organizations are already using cloud computing in one form or another. A crucial component of cloud security is focused on protecting data and business content, such as customer orders, secret design documents, and financial records. Attackers often exploit multiple assets to reach their end goal. They use their initial foothold to scan connected assets for unencrypted keys and other information that might allow them to move to the next target. Preventing leaks and data theft is critical for maintaining your customers’ trust, and for protecting the assets that contribute to your competitive advantage.
Orca Security is a leader in cloud security and provides cloud-wide, workload-deep security and compliance for AWS, Azure, and GCP － without the gaps in coverage, alert fatigue, and operational costs of agents. Unlike competing tools that operate in silos, Orca treats your cloud as an interconnected web of assets, prioritizing risk based on the severity of the underlying security issue combined with environmental context, including its accessibility and potential damage to the business. This does away with thousands of meaningless security alerts to provide just the critical few that matter, along with their precise path to remediation. Delivered as SaaS, Orca Security’s patent-pending SideScanning™ technology reads your cloud configuration and workloads’ runtime block storage out-of-band, detecting vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement risk, weak and leaked passwords, and unsecured PII. SideScanning™ covers all your workloads﹣VMs, containers, and serverless. Orca Security deploys in minutes not months because no opcode runs within your cloud environment. With Orca, security teams can query cloud estate data to quickly access essential intelligence and automatically assign cloud security issues to specific teams for more efficient triage, remediation, and compliance management.
Revolutionary Cloud security Platform Offered to Organizations
Orca’s SideScanning™: Leverage Orca's agentless cloud-native security and compliance platform to gain complete visibility and coverage into AWS, Azure, and GCP in a fraction of the time and operational costs of alternative solutions. 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. 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. An abundance of cloud security data is available, but it is difficult to consume and act on. This leads to inefficient workflows between security, DevOps, and IT, resulting in organizational friction and critical alerts being missed. Orca uses a simple, yet expressive query language that offers three core capabilities: advanced querying, alerting, and automation. Write custom alert queries or leverage over 600 system queries that are available out-of-the-box. If you can query it, you can monitor it. Automate your cloud security by creating custom alerts from queries and integrating these into existing remediation workflows with Orca’s auto-ticketing support.
Orca’s Context Engine: Security teams waste valuable time manually correlating high volume, low-risk alert data from multiple security tools. These alerts lack prioritization and actionable details leaving you to do all the heavy lifting. Say goodbye to guesswork, false positives, and alert fatigue. Orca is the only vendor that effectively prioritizes risks and threats across your entire cloud estate by leveraging context-aware security intelligence to examine all potential attack paths. Orca's graph-based visualization maps all your cloud assets and relationships from an attacker's perspective so you can accurately assess your cloud security posture.
