Since our founding seven years ago, Lacework has been helping customers of all sizes understand and protect against the advanced threats they face when building on or migrating to the cloud. And with nearly every global industry looking to adopt or expand their use of cloud computing, it’s critical to shift how the world of business thinks about security in this new era.

Today, we’re pleased to announce Lacework® was named to CNBC’s 10th Annual Disruptor 50 List. As cybersecurity becomes a top priority for business and government, this honor is both a strong validation of our ability to transform the future of cloud security, as well as a reflection of the customers and partners who have put their trust in our passionate team and technology.

In addition to making the CNBC Disruptor 50 list, Lacework also was recently ranked #6 on Forbes’ America’s Best Startup Employers List 2022. Together, they represent a journey marked by an ambitious vision, an obsession with our customers’ successes, and building a company #Lacers everywhere can all be proud of. Some of these highlights have included:

  • Building a Global Community. We’ve built a global team of Lacers that support customers in 13 countries, a robust partner ecosystem, and a customer community that share best practices and learnings in our Lacework Academy and Lacework Community.
  • Technology Leadership. Earlier this year we launched our new Polygraph Data Platform, introducing opportunities for customers to better correlate major vulnerabilities with exploit activity, as well as expanded capabilities and access across Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. We also established a quickly growing, world-class research organization, Lacework Labs, who have been critical in our understanding and response to major cloud security attacks. Further, we welcomed the team from Soluble in Lacework’s first acquisition, helping customers integrate security practices across their entire business with Infrastructure as Code (IaC) capabilities.
  • Customer & Business Growth. Our customers are our reason for existing. We saw momentum continue to soar in 2022, with record breaking revenue and new customer growth in every market we serve. And thanks to an expanded Go-to-Market organization, a new Lacework Partner Program, and a bold new brand look, we’re continuing to build awareness that customers no longer need to choose between going fast or being secure.
  • Value for Customers. In a Total Economic Impact study Forrester Consulting conducted on behalf of Lacework earlier this year, customers report an 86% reduction in alerts. Through decision-maker interviews and financial analysis, the study also determined an organization sees benefits of $2.31M over three years versus costs of $522K, totaling a net present value of $1.79M and an ROI of 342%. Lacework customers reported it took mere days, or even hours, to deploy the platform across their entire environment.

Making the CNBC Disruptor 50 list is only the latest evidence Lacework is on the right track. And as customers continue to face a myriad of evolving security threats, we at Lacework are committed to doing everything we can to ensure business can confidently use the cloud for its original purpose: growth and innovation.

Now that’s true disruption.
