Bottom Line:

Cloud Storage and Backup Benefits

Protecting your company’s data is critical. Cloud storage with automated backup is scalable, flexible and provides peace of mind. Cobalt Iron’s enterprise-grade backup and recovery solution is known for its hands-free automation and reliability, at a lower cost. Cloud backup that just works.


In the cloud, it’s often difficult for an organization to have a strong grip on where all of its compute workloads are and what’s running on them. That’s one of the key use cases and challenges that Lacework helps to solve with its public cloud security and compliance solution

The primary differentiator for Lacework is its Polygraph feature, which provides a visual representation of how everything relates across of workloads, APIs and account roles to provide better context.

Lacework is good choice for organizations that have growing cloud usage footprints – across hybrid cloud or multicloud – that are really looking to better understand what they are running in the cloud and need visibility and workload protection controls.

Service Description:

Lacework is a cloud workload security and compliance solution. Visibility is core component of the platform, providing organization with a view of assets spread across both public and private cloud deployments.

Beyond visibility, Lacework integrates configuration support to help make sure that cloud service configuration align with compliance and cloud security best practice requirements.

Automated workload intrusion detection in Lacework benefits from machine learning powered intelligence to help reduce risks. Alerts are ranked based on criticality and context, which is an area of differentiation for Lacework with its Polygraph feature.
