Cloud innovators once again vote Lacework as G2 Leader

Christine MedinaJune 20, 20234 min read


Lacework has, once again, been named a Leader in the G2 Summer Reports. Before I dig into the results, I’d like to mention that our customers are the reason for this recognition.

From our company’s inception, customer feedback has driven each and every platform enhancement. And, now, we get to boast an industry leading, code-to-cloud, cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP) — all thanks to our customers.

Let’s take a closer look at where Lacework landed this season.

G2, again, validates Lacework as a CNAPP Leader 

  • Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP)
  • Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM)
  • Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP)
  • Cloud Compliance
  • Cloud Security
  • Cloud Security Monitoring and Analytics
  • Container Security

This is the second round of reports that included CNAPP as a category, and Lacework has been ranked a Leader both times. CNAPP, as a term, has existed since 2021. However, Lacework has been offering a CNAPP for much longer. Before the term even existed, we heard the voices of cloud innovators, struggling to secure their dynamic environments. And we partnered with those cloud innovators to meet their needs.

Eight years later, the story is the same. Our platform enables our customers to secure and protect their cloud-native applications from build to runtime with a single platform approach. 

But Lacework is more than just a bunch of cloud security features, housed underneath a shared umbrella. These features complement each other. These features, which have been siloed within cloud environments for years, can share data to accomplish their jobs better. For example, with our custom risk scoring feature, we can cut up to 90% of your critical vulnerability noise and show you only those that matter most to your environment. How do we do it? By correlating build time and runtime data. Yes, runtime data that, for too long, has been claimed by CWPPs. 

Again, for nearly a decade, we’ve built the platform and the infrastructure to make features like this a reality. We’ve done the groundwork. We’ve spent years testing and refining our runtime agent to ensure optimal performance. And, now, we’re seeing the fruit of that labor. This custom risk score is just the tip of the spear in terms of what’s possible.

Within our CNAPP, customers can address the complexity of their cloud environments with comprehensive security that encompasses CSPM, CWPP, infrastructure as a code (IaC) security, container security, vulnerability management, cloud detection and response (CDR) and, now, cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM).

One of the great things about G2 is that its rankings are driven directly by customer reviews. Those leaving these reviews are the ones actually in the trenches, using the tools to make their cloud environments more secure. And it’s hard to deny personal experience!

That said, I want to highlight a few of our customers’ honest reviews, taken directly from the G2 site.


“Lacework reduces the barriers to success when tackling the complexities of cloud security.” — David Christensen, CISO, PlanSource



“One of the best CNAPP tools out in the market!” — Kevin Mata, Cybersecurity Software



“Lacework has supported us through our vision of SecOps automation and visibility. Automation is what sets it apart from competitors.” — Jessica Gomes, Global Director, Information Security, Dye & Durham Corporation

Customer voices will continue to drive Lacework innovation

The G2 awards come seasonally, but our focus on our customers is ongoing. We believe in centering everything we do around our customers, which means we listen closely to their feedback and partner with them to develop cloud security solutions that meet their individual business needs. 

It’s an honor to be recognized as a G2 Leader for our data-driven approach to security; we’re flattered to be considered a pioneer in the cloud security space. But, more than anything, these awards verify that our customers feel valued and heard and that they see their own fingerprints on the platform they use every day. 

At the end of the day, that’s really all that matters.
