3 reasons why customers choose Lacework over Wiz

Private by design and by default

Wiz sends snapshots out of a customer environment for analysis, expanding the attack surface. Lacework agentless workload scanning is private by design and by default and doesn’t exfiltrate your data.

A partner that scales alongside you

Although Wiz is a simple solution
for identifying risk, the data-driven
Lacework platform is designed to
support customers for the long
term as they mature their cloud
security practice.

Out with point solutions. In with data-driven platforms

With a single, comprehensive CNAPP
solution, Lacework delivers security
from code to cloud — no rule-writing
required. Teams can finally reach
operational nirvana.

Make everything you build cloud secure

Stop costly mistakes at the source

Fix vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they hit production. Add security checks early in development, including infrastructure as code (IaC) scanning. Empower developers to scan locally, in registries, and CI/CD while building, at scale.

Develop code with security built in

Know your cloud and its weak spots

Deploy agentlessly to understand cloud risks in minutes. Get instant visibility into what’s deployed, how it’s configured, and pinpoint vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. We scan everything – workloads, container images, hosts, and language libraries – so no secret can hide.

Shine a light on what’s running

Prioritize your most exploitable risks

Tie together risk factors — vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, network reachability, secrets, and more — to see how attackers can compromise your cloud. Automatically connect with insights into what’s happening in runtime to prioritize critical risks, investigate faster, and even see suggestions for remediation.

Uncover cloud account compromise

Our patented Polygraph® technology continuously learns your normal to root out suspicious and unusual behavior. Data-driven monitoring reveals compromise and the resulting blast radius. Rich context helps you quickly understand what happened, how, and where to fix it. Our patented approach not only automates threat detection, but can also significantly reduce your SIEM ingest costs too.

Find threats known and unknown

Continuously protect critical applications and environments with our workload and container security agent. Find new risks lurking in production and understand changes in behavior. Our data-driven approach connects the dots to detect known and unknown threats – even zero day attacks. And do it all automatically without endless rule writing and deep security expertise required.

Fewer tools. Faster outcomes. Better security.
