SideScanning Technical Brief – Inside the Engine that Powers Orca Security

Delivered as SaaS, Orca’s SideScanning™ technology reads your cloud configuration and workloads’ runtime block storage out-of-band, giving you workload-level security across AWS, Azure, and GCP - without the gaps in coverage and operational costs of agents.

The cloud estate of an organization comprises its complete inventory of cloud assets including running and stopped workloads of all types including VMs, containers, storage objects, load balancers, IAM configurations, and more. Organizations are searching for effective ways to scan their cloud estate to look for risks stemming from vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, malware, lateral movement risk, weak and leaked passwords, and improperly secured PII.

Orca Security introduces a radically new approach that secures the entire cloud estate and helps meet compliance mandates, but without disrupting business operations in live environments.
