Based out of Israel, Orca Security focuses on offering businesses with enhanced visibility into their multi-cloud deployment on Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Maintaining the same focus, the company, on May 5, 2020, released the news that it had successfully raised USD 20 million in a Series A funding round.
GGV Capital led the event, and it also witnessed participants like YL Ventures and Silicon Valley CISO Investments. Overall, along with its seed investment led by YL Ventures, the grand total of Orca’s funding has reached an impressive USD 27 million mark.
What makes Orca unique?
A significant feature that distinguishes Orca from others is its potential to rapidly provide workload level visibility even without an agent or network scanner. Alternatively, Orca works with low-level APIs that make it possible to gain visibility into what exactly is running in your cloud.
On the business front, Orca provides SaaS platform solutions along with providing work level visibility into public clouds such as AWS, Azure, and GCP. The company also offers security tools that are engineered to scan for vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, malware, password issues, and secret keys in personally identifiable information.
Founded in 2019 by former executives of Check Point Technologies and architects, the company tirelessly focuses on providing solutions to solve a fundamental challenge to provide smooth cloud security with the potential to analyze all cloud assets for risk quickly.
Barely in the business for a year and a half, the company counts companies such as Fiverr, Flexport, Sisene, and Qubole in its list of customers.
Investing for better cloud security risks solutions
With the latest and impressive USD 20 million in the Series A funding, Orca Security is substantially investing in talent, R and amp;D, and go-to-market growth. On the growth front, the company looks forward to doubling its business and team by the end of 2020.
The new hiring will be divided between the US and Israel offices. Glenn Solomon, Managing Partner GGV Capital will be part of the board of directors.
