Runtime Threat Defense
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 an 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.
