Lacework Extends Multicloud Security Support to Google Cloud Platform
Lacework, the industry's first solution to bring automation, speed, and scale to cloud security, today announced support for workload and account security for Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With this update, users can now apply Lacework's comprehensive, automated approach to anomaly detection, configuration compliance, and other cloud and container use cases for their data and operations running in GCP. 

Lacework is demonstrating continued momentum with this news coming directly off the heels of the company's February 12 announcement of comprehensive security support for Microsoft Azure and multicloud environments.  Now, users can apply Lacework's comprehensive, automated approach to anomaly detection, configuration compliance, and other cloud and container use cases for their data and operations running in GCP. 

Lacework also now supports Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) allowing customers to apply threat detection and deep visibility into cloud events for workloads and accounts across multiple platforms, including GCP, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Kubernetes, Docker, and others.  This makes Lacework the most comprehensive cloud security solution on the market today addressing the growing trend among modern enterprises to distribute their operations to different platforms.

"As a Lacework customer we are excited to see their continued innovation in the area of multicloud support and, in particular, deep integration with Kubernetes and GKE," said Will Gregorian, chief information security officer (CISO) at Iterable, a leading SaaS provider of customer engagement solutions for the modern marketer.

"Gartner predicts that by 2020, 75% of organizations will have deployed a multicloud or hybrid cloud model." As this trend continues, organizations will no longer be able to rely on point solutions, or products that specialize in single cloud platforms. The Lacework solution is purpose-built for end-to-end compliance and security management for all cloud and container activity, and the addition of support for GCP now means that customers can confidently operate in all of the three major cloud platforms.

"The cloud is all about flexibility, and customers are free to choose the platform that works best for their business and technology needs," said Dan Hubbard, chief product officer at Lacework. "Managing security and compliance should not add complexity into the work of security teams. Lacework simplifies this work with a solution that address threats and vulnerabilities in all cloud and container activity, irrespective of platform."
