F5 announced the general availability of F5 NGINXaaS for Azure, an integrated solution co-developed by F5 and Microsoft that empowers enterprises to deliver secure, high-performance applications in the cloud.
Lacework announced support for Microsoft Azure. With this update, Lacework customers will now have automated, comprehensive threat detection and deep insights into workloads and accounts that run in multiple cloud environments.
This expansion of the Lacework solution addresses the increasing move among organizations to deploy and manage workloads across multiple cloud environments in order to increase flexibility in IaaS and PaaS services, meet the needs of development and operations teams, and cover departments that shift services from traditional Microsoft platforms to Azure.
"We have had great success in serving the needs of AWS customers, but organizations want flexibility in how they create and manage their modern IT infrastructures," said Stefan Dyckerhoff, CEO of Lacework. "That flexibility comes with the burden of managing security for different types of resources and workloads. Lacework can now give organizations the ability to manage security for different types of platforms through a single solution."
While a multicloud approach offers many administrative advantages, it adds a layer of complexity for security teams that now need to address risk across different platforms, resource types, and infrastructures. In addition to existing support for AWS and Kubernetes environments, Lacework's support for Azure now enables organizations to use a single anomaly detection solution for all their cloud activity, as well as for containerized environments and orchestration tools like Kubernetes.
With the addition of Azure support, Lacework continues its market leadership as a purpose-built solution for cloud and containerized environments, with the sole goal of delivering deep insights through continuous threat detection for workloads, accounts and data.
