SideScanningTM – How the Engine that Powers Orca Security Works

Every organization is searching for effective ways to scan its cloud estate to look for risks. These include vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, malware, improper segmentation, and customer data at risk. They’re also seeking to verify compliance with security frameworks and government/industry regulations.

Orca Security introduces an innovative approach that secures the entire cloud estate without disrupting business operations in live environments—and with absolutely no need for agents or network scanners that fail to account for everything​.

Best Practices for Managing Risks in Your Cloud Deployment

IT teams are embracing the cloud for its scalability, reliability, flexibility, and rapid deployment capabilities, helping them achieve performance and cost-savings goals.

According to Gartner, by the end of 2019, we’ll see, “30 percent of the 100 largest vendors’ new software investments will have shifted from cloud-first to cloud-only.”

But for enterprises transitioning from on-prem architectures, a move to the cloud opens up new and uncharted territory when it comes to managing risk. Complex, distributed resources in the cloud call for an update to the standard risk management and security approach.

For security teams tasked with securing cloud environments, holding on to pre-cloud tools and mindset is no longer going to work, as the challenges and tools needed to secure cloud environments are different from what was required to secure pre-cloud architectures. Even worse, copying pre-cloud solutions means that the drawbacks of pre-cloud architectures are brought into the cloud world. Only by fully embracing the cloud and its values can enterprises take full advantage of its benefits.

The Ultimate Guide To AWS, Azure, and GCP Cloud Asset Visibility

Conventional cloud visibility tools have blind spots. They either don't see all of your assets or can't analyze them in depth. Download this eBook to compare solutions.

But there is a revolutionary new approach to cloud asset visibility and security. With it, there are no overlooked assets, no DevOps headaches, and no performance hits on live environments.

  • Delivers workload visibility without agents.
  • Deploys in minutes instead of months.
  • Detects vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement risk, weak and leaked passwords, and high-risk data such as PII.

This ultimate guide covers the pros and cons of conventional approaches and includes a comprehensive solutions comparison matrix. It concludes with a look at what 2020 and beyond holds for gaining deeper visibility into your entire cloud estate.

Infographic: Orca Security 2020 State of Public Cloud Security Report

Neglected workloads and authentication issues are the weak links attackers are looking for -- almost half of organizations have internet-facing workloads containing secrets and credentials, which poses a risk of lateral movement. The security of internal workloads is much worse than frontline services which increases the risk of lateral movement once a frontline service is loaded. Follow the exploitation path in this infographic to discover how most large breaches happen.

Report: The Orca Security 2020 State of Public Cloud Security

The world of cybersecurity isn’t fair. Security teams need to secure everything, but attackers need only find one weak link. For most organizations, cloud workload security is dependent upon the installation and maintenance of security agents across all assets. This rarely happens, as this report shows.

Download the Orca Security 2020 State of Public Cloud Security Report to learn:

  •     Benchmark your public cloud security posture against your peers
  •     The weak links and exploitation paths attackers are looking for
  •     The most common authentication issues hiding inside public cloud estates
  •     4 key recommendations to avoid a major breach

Article: Orca Security Research Finds Public Cloud Environments Rife with Neglected Workloads, Authentication Issues, and Lateral Movement Risk

For most organizations, cloud workload security is dependent upon the installation and maintenance of security agents across all assets. However, IT security teams are not always informed of cloud deployments, so this lack of visibility results in missed vulnerabilities and attack vectors.

While public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) keep their platforms secure, customers are still responsible for securing the workloads, data, and processes they run inside the cloud – just as they do in their on-prem world. Such shared responsibility poses a serious challenge due to the speed and frequency of public cloud deployments.

Orca Security’s 2020 State of Public Cloud Security Report analyzed data from more than two million scans of 300,000 public cloud assets running on AWS, Azure, and GCP. Scanned accounts represented Orca’s customer base across numerous industries including financial services, professional services, travel, cloud computing, online marketplaces, entertainment, real estate, and more.
