The dedicated research team at Lacework with a focus on areas that we believe are not getting enough attention in the research community specifically around new threats and attack surface risks within the public cloud.

We perform innovative research for cloud security by; delivering excellence in efficacy, providing protection and intelligence for our customers, and are a contributing force to the security community at large.

We use a combination of data-driven intelligence creation and our own expertise in the key areas we focus on. We use all kinds of buzzwords (Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Expert Systems, Honeypots, Honeytokens, etc….) to do this but let our results in our product efficacy, our published research, and our presentations to do the talking.
