Companies to address security trends of collaboration, decentralization
Lacework is aiming to bring more monitoring and analytics capabilities to its mulitcloud and container security platform through an integration with Datadog and its DevOps offerings.
The Lowdown: The partnership, announced this month, will address the ongoing transitions within the security space that include greater reliance on collaboration and a more decentralized environment, as well as the rise of DevSecOps teams.
The Details: Enterprises are increasingly adopting the Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) practice in their development efforts, which accelerates application delivery but also increases the risk for ransomware, cryptomining, and other cybersecurity threats. The goal of the Lacework-Datadog integration is to bring greater visibility and a more unified view of data and the security environment.
The integration will allow enterprises to:
> More quickly investigate security events by correlating data across disparate sources
> Use Datadog’s Logging without Limits capabilities to reuse archived logs and events for forensics
> Use a standard engineering pipeline to route alerts and escalations
> Locate and identify containers and hosts that are not running Lacework
The Impact: Lacework and Datadog bring a broad array of technology, cloud, and channel partners into the mix, including such cloud giants as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, MSPs like Ensono, Linke IT, and Rackspace, and solution providers like CipherTechs, Optiv, and CriticalStart.
The Buzz: “Our integration with Datadog allows developers to review security signals inside their existing workflow, to better protect their infrastructure and services without sacrificing productivity or speed,” Lacework CEO Dan Hubbard said. “This collaboration between DevOps and security in distributed systems will help bring value to DevSecOps teams.”
“Our customers increasingly rely on Datadog to monitor their security posture and alert on potential threats,” said Marc Tremsal, director of product management at Datadog. “This integration with Lacework provides greater security visibility across workloads, containers, and cloud environments to customers of both our platforms.”
