A pioneer in cloud security innovation, Orca security launched the industry’s first Attack Path Analysis and Business Impact Score for Cloud-Native Applications. The new facility automatically identifies the most significant attack vectors leading to an organization’s crown jewels by combining cloud risks and insights, including vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and trust privileges.
Avi Shua, co-founder, and CEO of Orca Security said, “Traditional security approaches prioritize individual risks, such as a known vulnerability or misconfiguration, without considering how these risks interact with each other to endanger the company’s most critical assets. This is an extremely ineffective way to approach security in the cloud. Security teams need to focus on the context surrounding each risk and how they can be combined and [our approach] dramatically boosts the effectiveness of cloud defenders to focus on the risks and attack paths that matter most.”
Rather than chasing isolated warnings, security personnel can now readily visualize organizational risk via an interactive dashboard. This method decreases alert fatigue, shortens the time to repair, and reduces the risk of damaging data breaches.
The Orca Attack Path Analysis and Business Impact Score assist in reducing cloud security warning fatigue. According to the organization 2022 Cloud Security Alert Fatigue Report, more than half of respondents (55%) believe their team has previously missed vital alerts owing to inefficient alert prioritization – typically on a monthly or even daily basis.
Stacey Halota, Vice President, Information Security, and Privacy at Graham Holdings said, “Orca has given us unprecedented visibility into our cloud environments. Every business unit that has adopted it thinks it is a terrific tool.”
