Mountain View, California, November 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Lacework, a company specializing in cloud data security, has announced a groundbreaking new generative artificial intelligence (AI) assistant that enables enterprise users to collaborate with the Lacework platform in a novel way, providing tailored context for proactive and reactive threat investigation and resolution. This new capability extends the impact of existing security teams, allowing them to build stronger relationships with DevOps organizations while improving the hiring and retention processes.
Lacework AI Assist is a tool available to analysts at their level of expertise, helping them address security issues in complex cloud environments more easily. In addition to saving time for security teams during threat investigations, it significantly enhances the operational efficiency of cloud security operations centers (SOCs) by providing personalized guidance for resolution. By harnessing the power of generative AI, the Lacework assistant simplifies understanding and action-taking for compliance teams, fostering a culture of proactive risk management. These capabilities also enable SOCs and security experts to build trust with developers, guiding them through the cloud development process more effectively.
Lacework AI Assist provides its users with the ability to ask questions such as:
– Why should I pay attention to this alert?
– What Lacework tools can I use for further investigation on this topic?
– How can I fix this misconfiguration using AWS CLI?
– Do these violations impact my SOC2 compliance?
While trendy generative AI tools are only as effective as the data they manipulate, Lacework is uniquely architectured to handle large volumes, high speeds, and diverse cloud data to uncover both known and unknown threats. By combining insights generated from Lacework’s Polygraph with auxiliary technologies of LLM, users gain a competitive advantage in achieving better and faster results.
Continuing the commitment to privately-designed solutions was crucial in developing the Lacework assistant experience. Extensive measures have been taken to ensure the security of customer data, meaning user data is not used to train any models.
By leveraging Amazon Bedrock’s generative AI model services, a fully managed service granting access to top AI company models, including Amazon’s, via API, Lacework deepens its collaboration with AWS, enabling experimentation with various models to deliver the best user experience.
“The adoption of generative AI was a natural evolution for us to build upon the deep capabilities of machine learning that are at the core of the Lacework anomaly detection platform,” said Adam Leftik, Vice President of Products at Lacework. “Our users can use Lacework to protect themselves from potential threats posed by generative AI, but also utilize generative AI to gain better understanding of risks and threats in their cloud environments. Utilizing Amazon Bedrock for this purpose is an exciting technical victory.”
Lacework has achieved AWS Built-in Competency certification, recognizing Lacework as an AWS Partner that provides users with an installable, configurable, and integrable solution with key underlying AWS services through a well-designed modular code repository (MCR) in an automated distribution validated by AWS experts, reducing the time users need to customize their solutions.
