Runtime Threat Defense for Cloud Containers & Workloads

Identify vulnerabilities across the entire scope of you cloud and containerized environments

Visibility and Analysis for Cloud and Container Workloads

Lacework provides runtime threat defense that enables security teams to identify vulnerabilities across the entire scope of their cloud and containerized environments. This includes identifying security issues with serverless resources, applications, networks, file systems, APIs, processes, and other elements that could increase the threat vector of an organization’s infrastructure. With an emphasis on events happening at runtime, organizations can identify issues before they spread within their cloud or container environment. 

Identifying Risks at Runtime

Lacework’s approach uses automation and unsupervised machine learning. Security teams are able to deploy the Lacework agent across multiple cloud platforms, within application orchestration environments like Docker and Kubernetes, and even in hybrid workloads. As a SaaS service, organizations are able to review historical event data across their infrastructure to understand where breaches occurred and identify risk areas.

In a rapidly changing deployment environment, traditional security rules are stale as soon as they are deployed and new attacks are missed because they require someone to write the appropriate rule. Lacework’s automated approach provides the following benefits:

  • No Missed Events: Lacework will always alert you on new activity so that you are given a chance to investigate any behavior within your environment that could potentially be malicious.
  • Low Alert Noise: Lacework will only alert you on what is new or anomalous, preventing alert fatigue within your organization.
  • Simple Operations & Maintenance: Automated workload detection means no writing and maintaining error-prone rules. With Lacework you will not need to constantly maintain rules, allowing you to focus on securing your environment.

The Power of Polygraph

Lacework’s foundation is Polygraph, a deep temporal baseline, which we present to users as a set of behavioral maps or “Polygraphs.” With the complexity and volume of a modern data center, Polygraph employs a baseline, zero-touch approach without leaving any blank spaces where attackers can hide.

Cloud Security at Scale & at the Speed of Business

The modern cloud infrastructure allows organizations to deploy, scale, and configure their infrastructure faster than ever. The ability to automate and operate at DevOps speed poses a challenge to traditional security approaches. Lacework’s approach to runtime threat defense is to automate the detection of threats and anomalies and provide human-understandable investigative insights. Lacework supports threat defense for public clouds AWS, GCP, Azure, and supports computer hosts and containers.
