Lacework Announces 14–Day Free Trial of Zero-Touch Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP)
Product review by SANS Institute details zero-touch approach to cloud security and how the product assists with breach detection in the cloud
June 27, 2017
Mountain View, Calif. – June 27, 2017 – Lacework™, the industry’s first zero-touch cloud workload security solution, today announced the immediate availability of a 14-day free trial for its zero-touch cloud workload protection platform. With this free trial, global security teams can rapidly assess their security posture on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and modern data centers. The trial enables cloud security teams to track the normal behavior of entities managed in the cloud – applications, processes, workloads, VMs and containers, machines – and automatically detect deviation from the baseline that indicate abnormal or malicious behavior.
“With our free trial, we want every security professional to be able to experience zero-touch security with no rules, no policies, no logs and the benefits of it,” said Sanjay Kalra, Co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Lacework. “Conventional security tools face a dead-end with cloud computing. They are becoming blind to events happening inside virtualized or container-based environments. Using Lacework, organizations can detect security breaches faster, manage insider threats, accelerate investigation and get better insights into all cloud activities.”
In a recent hands-on product review, the SANS Institute commented that Lacework thrives in being able to baseline an environment with zero-touch capabilities and effectively detected suspicious events that might have required cumbersome log analysis to identify. The results of the product review will be presented on Wednesday, Jun 28, 2017 at 10 a.m. (PDT) during a live webcast on “Effortless Detection and Investigation of Cloud Breaches”. Matt Bromiley, a SANS Digital Forensics and Incident Response instructor, will share his experience with the product, including ease of use, including the concept of “zero-touch” and how the product can assist with breach detection, insight into DevSecOps, investigation analysis and insider threat management Attendees will also be the first to receive a paper detailing this review.
Lacework eliminates the reliance on labor-intensive policy and rule development and time-consuming log correlation activities that characterize today’s alternatives. Within two hours of activation, Lacework builds a polygraph that baselines activities and normal behaviors. Deviation from the baseline is automatically identified and generate an alert indicating misconfiguration, abnormal behavior, or a malicious intrusion.
