Wiz is reinventing cloud security from the inside out.
We’re on a mission to help organizations effectively reduce risks in their Cloud and Kubernetes environments. Purpose-built for the unique complexities of multi-environment, multi-workload, and multi-project cloud estates, Wiz automatically correlates the critical risk factors to deliver actionable insights that don't waste time.
Wiz connects in minutes using a 100% API-based approach that scans both platform configurations and inside every workload. Our full security stack context surfaces the toxic combinations that show the attackers’ view to a breach. Security and development teams use Wiz workflows to proactively remove risks and prevent them from becoming breaches.
BMC Helix Cloud Security is a SaaS tool designed to help organizations reduce compliance and security lapses resulting from next-gen container and cloud technologies. The solution offers a fully transparent, user-friendly view of all compliance data gathered throughout container resources, cloud, and data centers. BMC Helix Cloud Security can be used to insert compliance inquiries precisely in DevOps workflows for immediate assessment in relation to critical “go, no-go” conclusions throughout the entire workflow.
BMC Helix Cloud Security offers enterprise organizations a unique compliance solution with robust functionalities to concentrate on numerous use processes that may interfere with digital transfigurations, such as:
BMC Helix Cloud Security is SaaS, which makes it a very flexible solution. It is able to integrate seamlessly with many of today’s enterprises’ demands. BMC Helix Cloud Security can easily perform as a policy-as-code (YAML) based protocol language, open RESTful APIs, or by seamlessly compiling extensible data connectors.
Many of today's enterprise organizations must comply with numerous policies and regulations to maintain effective operations. BMC Helix Cloud Security ensures an enterprise organization is able to satisfy regulatory standards such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act, Defense Information System Agency (DISA), or any other stringent government or internal organizational compliance standards. The solution has a comprehensive compliance policy that utilizes mode-two capabilities and will ensure that an enterprise organization will greatly minimize or even negate the threat of ransomware and data breaches throughout its network.
BMC Helix Cloud Security will also see that container and container hosts are configured correctly and will then regularly audit to ensure compliance at the three important levels of compliance - images, daemon configuration, and host configuration.
BMC Helix Cloud security is also able to help discover and minimize vulnerabilities created by new services, objects, and resources instituted by containers and public clouds. These can sometimes be forgotten, creating a tremendous risk to an organization. BMC Helix Cloud Security will ensure these new services will be carefully and continually monitored to ensure industry and government standards and regulations are not being compromised. The solution is continually dissecting data and then will deliver outcomes in a dynamic, easy-to-understand dashboard.
BMC Helix Cloud Security offers a user-friendly, robust, complete compliance strategy to ensure organizations maintain the highest levels of productivity and profitability while negating the risk of any type of compliance vulnerabilities.
The Orca Security Platform is a cloud-based platform that provides an end-to-end security solution for organizations. Orca helps to identify and prevent cyber attacks by scanning the network and identifying any vulnerabilities and breaches in the system. It also provides a detailed report of all the threats found on the system. It protects data from being compromised by encrypting it at all levels of storage and transmission. It also provides continuous monitoring of the system through its advanced AI engine, which detects any anomalies in your network activity while alerting you to them. The platform acts as a single agentless security tool that visualizes all cloud assets to detect security risks at every layer and prioritizes them.
Orca Security has the capacity to detect zero-day attacks and can be used for endpoint protection. It also manages general IT security, ensuring that systems are up to date with the latest security patches.
Orca offers deeper visibility into AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud without agents’ operational costs. The solution uses SideScanning technology to check for:
Orca protects different forms of cloud assets, including serverless, containers, VPCs, keys, storage buckets, paused or stopped workloads, VMs, and devices that cannot support agents.
Orca Security Goals
Orca’s agentless cloud security tool is used to achieve three main goals:
Orca Security SideScanning Benefits
Orca offers agentless cloud security with a patent-pending technology called SideScanning. SideScanning is a ground-breaking technology that is designed to find data leaks by passively monitoring the network perimeter for malicious activity. The technology is an enhancement to traditional network perimeter security. Its purpose is to provide a seamless view of the entire network, including endpoints, servers and infrastructure components. The success of Orca’s SideScanning technology lies in its ability to reduce the need for multiple tools to perform cloud vulnerability management.

Reviews from Real Users
Orca Security stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its ability to provide powerful dashboard visibility and its ability to gather specific intelligence through simple queries. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:
Shahar M., CISO at a recruiting firm, notes, “Orca gives you great visibility into your assets. It shows you the issues and the things that you need to attend to first, by prioritizing things. You can see a lot of information that is not always visible, even to DevOps, to help you know about the machines and their status. It's very easy to see everything in a single dashboard. That makes it a very useful tool.”
Ty S., chief security and trust officer at SiSense, writes, “Seeing all vulnerabilities and configurations is really powerful for us, but ultimately, the ability to use the API to query across the fleet to understand what is the current state, what is the patch level, which ones are potentially exposed for a new CVE that just came out is even more valuable. It allows us to gather really specific intelligence through simple queries.”
BMC Helix Cloud Security is ranked 23rd in CWPP (Cloud Workload Protection Platforms) while Orca Security is ranked 6th in CWPP (Cloud Workload Protection Platforms) with 9 reviews. BMC Helix Cloud Security is rated 0.0, while Orca Security is rated 9.6. On the other hand, the top reviewer of Orca Security writes "Agentless approach makes it simple, reducing the number of tools we use, while rankings helps focus our engineers". BMC Helix Cloud Security is most compared with Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks, Guardicore Centra, IBM Turbonomic and VMware Aria Automation, whereas Orca Security is most compared with Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, Lacework, Tenable.io Vulnerability Management and Amazon GuardDuty.
