Cloud security services provider Lacework has added a suite of new capabilities and support for its multicloud offerings to help customers secure cloud workloads and improve operational efficiency.
The new enhancements on the platform include extended support on various enterprise-grade offerings including cloud security posture management (CSPM), attack path analysis (APA), and risk management ticketing system.
“These optimizations and integrations are useful to drive efficiency and better collaboration across teams,” said Melinda Marks, senior analyst at ESG. “Gaining full visibility, ensuring you have coverage with comprehensive monitoring to catch issues, and then streamlining operations is difficult due to the complexity of cloud-native environments and the relationships between assets and resources, so it is important to continue these incremental enhancements.”
Lacework adds support for OCI
The platform has expanded its cloud security posture management offering to include support for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), promising teams’ visibility into their OCI resources and their associated risks. Lacework’s CSPM currently supports Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Azure, and the inclusion of OCI is expected to further centralize enterprise security control.
“My research study on CSPM earlier this year showed that supporting multiple public cloud services is a top challenge and need, as 40% of organizations use 4 or more CSPs,” Marks said. “Also, Oracle is increasing its initiatives with OCI security and developer platform, so it is helpful to provide flexibility supporting customers cloud adoption.”
Additionally, Lacework has expanded its “attack path analysis” feature to support Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. The feature offers an attacker’s view to identify how a threat can be exploited to breach a cloud environment.
