Lacework is a cloud security platform for enterprise innovation that delivers a complete security platform for the entire IT infrastructure, from DevOps and orchestration environments, to cloud and hybrid workloads.

Lacework aims to close security gaps across DevOps and cloud environments by identifying threats targeting cloud servers, containers, and accounts.

Lacework was founded in 2015 by Mike Speiser, Sanjay Kalra, and Vikram Kapoor. The company is based in San Jose, California.


The Lacework Cloud Security Platform is the only technology that integrates security natively from code to run time and is fueled by Polygraph®, a data-first patented machine-learning engine that delivers less noise, lower risk, and higher ROI.


Lacework's agent provides visibility into running processes and apps, using AI to detect anomalous behavior. Only Lacework can collect, analyze, and accurately correlate data across an organization’s AWS, Azure, GCP, and Kubernetes environments, and narrow it down to the handful of security events that matter.


Lacework helps major brands get visibility and understanding into the vulnerabilities from DevOps to workload run-time operations. Some of its customers include HashiCorp, Iterable, LogicMonitor, Hypergiant, Sprinklr, AdRoll, and many more.


Lacework is backed by Sutter Hill Ventures, Altimeter Capital, D1 Capital Management, Tiger Global, Coatue, Dragoneer Investment Group, Counterpoint Global, Durable Capital, Franklin Templeton, General Catalyst, and others.
