Overall Satisfaction with Lacework

We used Lacework as a service that performed behavioral analysis of the AWS Infrastructure layer (Cloudtrail, AWS Config), the server host processes, and user activities within AWS and the server itself. We also used Lacework Container Security to deliver end-to-end visibility of Docker container images by providing vulnerability assessments and malware detection. Vulnerability scanning for production instances with centralized logging and event analysis is a ‘must-have’ for customers from any product in the Commercial/GxP state.

  • Has helped give us coverage on different usage patterns
  • Good with compliance - helped with credibility with auditors
  • At times (a negative), Lacework has impacted our product teams by causing product issues on our production infrastructure
  • F5 Distributed Cloud Application Infrastructure Protection (AIP)
Lacework was superior with implementation and alert handling.

Would you buy Lacework again?


Lacework is well suited for behavioral analysis. One thing to consider thought is in the early stages there will be quite a bit of noise generated by Lacework. There will be a higher volume alerts generated initially - until a good baseline is generated. Overall Lacework is good with alert handling - integration with Slack is good.
