Trust is at the center of what we do

Lacework takes a fundamentally unique approach to customer privacy, demonstrated through our private by design agentless scanning architecture.

Private by design

At Lacework, our agentless workload scanning is private by design, carefully architected around three fundamental tenets of trust.

Three Tenets of Trust

We believe what happens in your cloud should stay in your cloud.

Lacework agentless workload security scans your data and reads analysis results only within your cloud environment, ensuring that your data doesn’t leave your account. This means that even in the unfortunate event of a breach of the vendor, your data – and your customers’ data – remains safe.

We believe privacy should not be a tradeoff for good security.

If your security solution is exporting your data, not only is privacy potentially compromised, but you might also jeopardize complying with GDPR and other international data or privacy standards. Instead of addressing these gaps at no additional cost, vendors may charge users extra for the privilege of secure scanning within their own accounts. You shouldn’t have to pay more to keep your data private.

We believe attacks are inevitable and security vendors shouldn’t expand your attack surface.

Some security providers stand behind the claim that identifying all attack paths can allow customers to prevent 100% of attacks. But this claim is not grounded in reality, especially considering the fluid nature of development teams. No one is immune to attacks, but expanding your attack surface could open you up to unnecessary risk.


Are you compromising data privacy with your security vendor?

Each security vendor handles, stores, and protects your data differently — and some of their standard practices might surprise you.
