The latest funding round was led by CapitalG, Alphabet’s independent growth fund, and Redpoint Ventures, with participation from existing investors ICONIQ Capital, GGV Capital, and SVCI.
Orca Security has built a dependable cloud security solution that actually works. This is evident, as it has been the clear choice of the world’s most forward-thinking companies.
