As AI has come into the spotlight and become the topic of much discussion, I wanted to give an update on the many different ways Orca Security is using AI to bring better cloud security.


  1. Powered by Orca’s AI, the IAM Policy Optimiser analyzes IAM administrators’ recent usage, and clusters this usage into separate groups according to behavior. Orca calculates the largest security improvements that can be made with the least policy changes, and provides teams with guided remediation steps to reduce IAM risk, as well as suggests a new least-privileged policy to each of the new groups. 


  1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a crucial role in identifying when there’s an active attack occurring in your cloud environment. AI can process large volumes of data and logs, and in the blink of an eye, perform in-depth contextual analysis to determine when events are significantly anomalous and could possibly be harmful, therefore indicating the likelihood of malicious behavior. Armed with this speed and intelligence, security teams can instantly be alerted to potential attacks in progress and respond quickly to prevent further damage. For example, as seen in the recent supply chain risk discovered in Google Cloud Build, security teams need an automated way to be alerted to unauthorized or irregular usage of the Cloud Build service account. This is where AI-powered anomaly detection provides the solution.


  1. With Orca’s ChatGPT integration, security practitioners can instantly generate high-quality remediation instructions for each alert straight from the Orca Platform, greatly accelerating their Mean Time to Remediation (MTTR). Instructions can simply be copied and pasted into the relevant platform, such as CLI, Terraform, Pulumi, AWS CloudFormation, AWS Cloud Development Kit, Azure Resource Manager, Google Cloud Deployment Manager, and Open Policy Agent, and configuration steps can easily be followed in a console. 


And you, how do you benefit from AI to increase your cloud Security ?
