Before we dive into the details, we want to start by thanking our customers for their trust, support, and the valuable feedback they’ve provided on their Lacework experience and with the Polygraph® Data Platform. It is because of our customers and their positive reviews that we continue to remain a Leader year after year.

At Lacework, our number one core value is “Customer First.” This belief system influences everything we do and means we listen closely to our customers, partnering with them to develop innovative solutions that meet their unique business needs — with a unified platform approach.

Leader in the Grid® Report for Container Security

We know that container adoption is on the rise, and we want to make sure that our customers can secure their containerized environment — from end-to-end —without impacting speed to market. With our automated anomaly detection, we enable customers to see and understand changes within their environment, without endless rule-writing.

“One of the easiest and efficient tools for carrying out container scans, mitigating the security vulnerabilities found in containers thus making the product secure.” — User in Information and Technology Services

Leader in the Grid® Report for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPP)

It’s important for our customers to have a cloud security solution that helps them manage the scale and complexity of their cloud environments, and secure workloads from build time to runtime. Lacework continuously monitors for misconfigurations and vulnerabilities in workloads, empowering customers to assess, prioritize, and manage risk. We use patented behavioral analytics to continuously monitor workloads, and help customers protect against known and unknown threats. 

“Lacework for the security risk reduction win! [Lacework provides] us the ability to monitor our Cloud infrastructure and report on abnormal activity, along with vulnerability scanning and alerting.” — Director of Information Security & IT Infrastructure

Leader in the Grid® Report for Cloud Compliance

We simplify and automate the compliance process for our customers by continuously checking their cloud (or multicloud) environment against a set of standards and reporting the status in a single dashboard.. Our customers run Lacework reports that identify misconfigurations and compliance violations  over any given period to easily meet auditor, customer, or partner evidence requests, drastically reducing the workload for security teams. 

“Lacework helps InfoSec people sleep at night! Lacework learns your environment and then monitors it for changes. And, you can test your compliance with major frameworks, like SOC 2, instantly.” — Administrator in Marketing and Advertising 

Leader in the Grid® Report for Cloud Security

As more and more companies migrate to the cloud, they find themselves more vulnerable to attacks from bad actors. We are here to help our customers gain the visibility needed to protect their infrastructure, applications, and data, while freeing up time for their teams to focus on what matters most. 

 “Lacework is solving problems of improving our organization’s cloud security profile and gives great visibility into our cloud estate.” — User in Information and Technology Services

Lacework is also a Leader in the Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) category which just recently qualified for a Grid® Report. We expect to be included as a Leader in this category in the Winter 2023 reports — making us a Leader across all 5 categories we are in.

We’ve got badges

It’s always a good day when we find out that G2 has awarded us 12 badges, with one newly awarded for Best Usability. We’ll just highlight our favorites here today, in addition to the category Leader badges mentioned above.

We strive to provide an easy-to-use platform that continuously generates value for our customers. It is an honor to be ranked as the best in usability, user adoption, and ease of deployment. Delivering a great user experience is a top priority for us. These badges show that we’re actively listening to and meeting the needs of our customers.
