Lacework + Amazon GuardDuty
Lacework’s integration with AWS Security Hub enhances existing security alerts and introduces new composite alerts that build on Amazon GuardDuty anomaly detection findings. Further, marrying Amazon GuardDuty findings with Lacework’s composite alerts provides richer investigative context that helps security professionals prioritize, reducing investigation times and delivering a heightened level of cloud security for joint customers.
“Lacework’s integration with AWS Security Hub and Amazon GuardDuty is a significant step forward in cloud security and a testament to our commitment to providing enterprises with the tools they need to stay ahead of emerging threats in the cloud,” said Brian Lanigan, Vice President, Worldwide Channels and Alliances, Lacework. “Through this extension of our relationship with AWS, we’re able to provide our shared customers with a comprehensive view of their cloud security attack surface and help them identify and respond to threats more quickly and effectively.”
Customers will also be able to send enriched Lacework composite alerts back into Amazon Security Lake to have even greater access to security events.
“‘As a current user of Lacework composite alert feature, we are excited to see the Amazon GuardDuty integration,” said Yisehak Lemma, CISO, Instructure. “These enriched composite alerts give us greater confidence and reduce our investigation time, allowing us to focus on the threats that could have the greatest impact on our cloud.”
