Lacework has been deeply focused on finding new ways to use data to solve customer problems since its foundation more than nine years ago. At our core, we believe that true cloud security is rooted in comprehensive data, agility, end-to-end visibility, and smart scalability. That’s why our achievements in cloud security have been consistently recognized for our market-leading innovation. And as we enhance our product and company to meet the growing needs of our customers, we continue to distinguish ourselves in the crowded, competitive field of cloud security. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most notable industry recognitions we received over the past year.
