Expanding Security, Visibility, and Automation Across AWS Environments
April 22, 2021
Lacework, the security platform for the cloud generation, has announced that it has extended native security support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) services including AWS Graviton2 and AWS Fargate. These additions give Lacework customers using AWS in-depth security visibility, threat detection, configuration compliance, and context into cloud security data and changes for all compute types: virtual machines, containers, containers as services, containers on demand, bare metal and serverless.
This announcement highlights Lacework’s recent investments in innovation on the AWS platform. These recent capabilities expand our ability to provide even greater levels of security, visibility, and automation to AWS users.
In its continued efforts to provide the most comprehensive cloud security solution for customers on AWS, Lacework now offers:
AWS Graviton2 ARM-based Infrastructure Security with Lacework
Lacework has released an agent for securing ARM64-based VMs with AWS Graviton1 and Graviton2 instances. The Lacework ARM security agent offers AWS users lower costs than traditional Intel and AMD servers, and enables the same functionality for ARM hosts as all other cloud hosts. Customers switching to ARM servers have reported savings as great as 40% for the same or improved performance.
Asset Discovery for AWS Environments
Lacework customers are now able to understand what’s in their AWS account from within Lacework, without the need to navigate to the AWS console. This gives DevSecOps teams immediate visibility and context into what’s in their AWS account, so they can understand inventory and track resource configuration changes over time.
Container & Workload Security for AWS Fargate
While most containers run on a host, in Fargate, AWS manages the host. Lacework now provides continuous security observability and threat detection for AWS Fargate Containers. Native support for AWS Fargate means that developers can now use AWS Fargate containers with confidence, and teams can apply Lacework container security to an even broader array of container services.
Secure, Automated IaC Deployments with Terraform
Customers deploying workloads using a href=”https://www.lacework.com/solutions/infrastructure-as-code/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Infrastructure as Code (IaC) need to automate the deployment of their security tools. Lacework has released comprehensive Terraform modules for AWS that enable organizations to automatically add visibility and security to their rapidly-changing AWS environments.
Lacework Achieves AWS Container Security Competency Status
Lacework is pleased to announce that they have been awarded the AWS Container Security Competency status. This designation recognizes Lacework’s technical capabilities and proven success helping companies detect and visualize threats in containerized environments.
