Lacework Announces Immediate Support for Microsoft Windows Server

Simplifies Cloud Security with Technology That Addresses Hybrid Cloud Environments in One Solution

Mountain View, Calif. – September 27, 2017 – Lacework™, one of the industry’s first zero-touch cloud security solutions, today announced that it has expanded its security footprint with support for Microsoft Windows Server. By bringing its zero-touch cloud security solution to Microsoft Windows Server, Lacework’s support for multi-cloud strategy now spans both Windows Server and Linux. Lacework will be demonstrating these latest capabilities at Microsoft Ignite which takes place September 25-29 in Orlando, Florida. Conference attendees are invited to visit the Lacework booth (#1963) for a live demonstration of Lacework for Windows Server.

According to Forrester’s September 2017 report, Vendor Landscape: Cloud Workload Security Solutions Q3 2017, “multiple clouds magnify network security challenges”. From having to support multiple public clouds, traditional and cloud-based data centers, and multiple operating systems, IT organizations are faced with increased complexity. The Lacework Cloud Security Platform simplifies cloud security by delivering a zero-touch solution that does not require any configuration, is self-tuning, and now operates across Windows Server and Linux. Organizations that maintain a private cloud relying on Windows Server and/or Linux on-premises, or in a co-location, now benefit from one solution that addresses hybrid environments.  

“We’re at a moment in time when the cloud and DevOps landscape is evolving at an astonishing pace. Organizations must be nimble and ready to quickly adopt and deploy technologies that help their staff perform to the best of their capabilities,” said Sanjay Kalra, CPO, Lacework. “With Lacework’s help, these companies can make the most out of new technologies like containers and deploy in a number of public clouds of their choice, all while leveraging a proven environment like Microsoft Windows Server.”

Organizations that are moving Windows-based workloads to the cloud are well aware of the security challenges brought cloud deployments. Within two hours of activation, Lacework builds a polygraph that baselines activities and normal behaviors. Deviations from the baseline are automatically identified and generate an alert indicating misconfiguration, abnormal behavior, or a malicious intrusion.

Lacework provides organizations with a self-service acquisition model, making it dramatically easier for security operations and DevOps personnel to get started. A private beta for Microsoft Windows Server is now available and can be found here.
