Mountain View, Calif. – June 1, 2017– Lacework™, a provider of cloud workload security solutions, today announced new customer adoption, industry accolades, product updates on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace, and an expanded executive team. These developments demonstrate the company’s momentum and continuing leadership in high velocity cloud security solutions. Polygraph, Lacework’s cloud workload security solution, instantly detects breaches, manages insider threats, delivers insights into workloads, and supports security investigations for hybrid cloud workloads.

“This is an exciting time for Lacework. After only one month on the market, we are already seeing rapid adoption of our Polygraph platform,” said Jack Kudale, CEO, Lacework. “Since our launch, Polygraph has grown to protect more than 50,000 instance-hour of cloud workloads every day. We’ve been honored with several awards, strengthened our executive bench through new hires and added new partner agreements and enterprise customer deployments.

With Polygraph, cybersecurity teams are finally as fast as the cybercriminals.”
