Orca Security, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based cloud security startup, raised $6.5m in seed funding.
The round was led by YL Ventures, which is led by managing partner Yoav Leitersdorf.
Founded by former Check Point executives Avi Shua and Gil Geron, Orca Security provides the Orca Cloud Visibility Platform which leverages patent-pending “SideScanning” technology to deliver comprehensive visibility into the security posture of an organization’s complete cloud footprint in a matter of minutes, without per-asset integration.
Quickly, the company’s solution provides forensic level visibility inside of every virtual machine to expose issues such as operating system and application level vulnerabilities and compromises.
The cloud native platform utilizes a single integration into the cloud infrastructure layer to automatically assess the security state of every discovered asset throughout the entire technology stack, encompasses the cloud control plane, operating system, applications and business data, and delivers complete visibility into compromised resources, vulnerable software, misconfigurations.
The platform is currently in limited availability to qualified customers. General availability will be in late 2019.
