Comprehensive cloud account security for AWS, Azure, and GCP accounts

When it comes to business today, speed is everything. Having the right data at the right time can make or break your business’ ability to innovate and grow. Thousands of companies today rely on Snowflake to easily store, access, unite, and analyze all of their data.

Snowflake’s Data Cloud unites siloed data, discovers and securely shares company data, giving customers a single data experience that may span multiple clouds and geographies

Having all this data in a single place has its advantages, but as the security discussion moves upward into the boardroom, so too is the need for business leaders to show progress against their security objectives.

Issues such as compliance requirements, vulnerability detection, detection of malicious activity means you need total visibility across your entire cloud environment. Visibility at the infrastructure level across your AWS, GCP, Azure, Kubernetes or other containers and workloads is an absolute necessity, from built time to run time.

So how do you do that? With Lacework.
