Cloud security unicorn Lacework secures funding from Google

Data-driven cloud security company Lacework has received an investment from GV and established a new partnership with Google Cloud.

The size of the investment was not revealed.

Lacework’s Polygraph Data platform provides automated anomaly detection for Google Cloud’s trusted, global infrastructure. The solution will soon be made available via Google Cloud Marketplace so customers can easily purchase Lacework and integrate the platform into their environment and identify potential issues and threats.

The two companies will also work together for upcoming integrations with Google Cloud Security Command Center. This will help Lacework customers using the Google Cloud when looking for multi-cloud capabilities as part of their security operations deployments.

Organisations leveraging the Polygraph Data platform can uncover suspicious activity across a multi-cloud environment so they can detect and address threats and risks. Customers can easily see cloud changes without needing manual oversight from security teams.

Google Cloud VP and general manager of cloud security Sunil Potti said, “It’s now an organizational imperative for enterprises of all sizes and across all industries to build security into their technology stack at every level, including across multiple cloud providers.

“Lacework’s integration with Security Command Center (SCC) on Google Cloud enables organizations to deploy the Lacework platform at scale for any cloud, while more readily detecting and addressing anomalies in conjunction with SCC for Google Cloud environments.”

Last year, Lacework closed one of the largest funding rounds in the security industry. It bagged an immense $1.3bn, which valued the business at $8.3bn.
