Consolidate Multiple Security Tools

Point Solutions and the Rise of Cost, Complexity, and False Alarms

Does your organization have one too many security tools? According to a recent survey by Dimension Research, 98% of organizations manage their security products with multiple consoles, creating visibility silos while 69% agree that prioritizing vendor consolidation would lead to better security. A typical security stack utilizes 25 security tools or more. Although each security tool fulfills a specific and important use case and promises to detect new threat vectors, this “tool sprawl” actually ends up leaving organizations more vulnerable. Here’s why:

  • Understanding what is important is difficult when investigating multiple alerts from dozens of security tools
  • Integrating multiple tools is time consuming and rarely works out as intended—plus it adds complexity when building automated CI/CD processes
  • Learning and maintaining multiple tools causes drain and friction on already stretched security teams
  • Managing unknown and ever-increasing budgets resulting from multiple vendors leads to difficulting budgeting
  • Layering tools in a complex security environment can lead to hidden gaps in coverage that leave an organization vulnerable to attack

The average organization runs between 25 to 49 security tools from up to 10 different vendors. Read the report from ESG Global

Eliminate Blind Spots and Quickly Respond to Threats

Leveraging multiple tools inevitably leads to blind spots. The flood of alerts point tools produce makes it impossible to investigate them all. Most tools require complex sets of rules, policies, and suppressions to reduce alert noise and false positives allowing the true threats to go undetected. With Lacework, you gain complete visibility into all of your cloud assets, understand what vulnerabilities actually leave you vulnerable, and detect the behaviors that are unusual and threatening to your specific environment.

  • Reduce hundreds of security alerts to fewer than five per day
  • Gain new levels of visibility across your entire cloud environment (single cloud, multi-cloud, or hybrid)
  • Recognize the real threats and vulnerabilities that leave you susceptible to attack
  • Leverage behavior-based anomaly detection and eliminate the need to write and maintain rules and suppressions across multiple tools
  • Quickly investigate the why, what, and when of anomalous security events so you can efficiently and effectively respond

Lacework is always on top of the latest threats, so you don’t have to be. We cull hundreds of vulnerabilities, malware, public security flaws, and exploits, and couple them with threat intelligence and cutting edge research, to provide you always up-to-date, always-on, cloud coverage.
