Lacework, the data-driven security platform for the cloud, today announced it is seeing an increase in customer adoption following the appointment of Jay Parikh as Co-CEO and a $525 million growth round led by Sutter Hill Ventures earlier this year. In the first quarter of 2021, the company reported 3x revenue growth, 5x increase in new customers and an almost 300% employee growth year-on-year. These growth metrics continued through the second quarter as Lacework attracted new customers across segments and industries with its differentiated platform, including expansion into 10 new countries.
“The rapid adoption of the cloud presents organisations with a multitude of opportunities; however, it has introduced new cybersecurity challenges that many organisations do not have the right resources to protect against. At Lacework, being customer-centric is a core part of our DNA and it’s been empowering to work with our customers and partners to help them overcome these barriers and enable them to innovate quickly and securely. But the journey is just beginning,” said David “Hat” Hatfield, Co-CEO at Lacework. “Our team is committed to continue to deliver both the depth and breadth of innovative solutions to help our customers consolidate the dozens of tools they have today, simplifying their environments, while increasing their ROI and their security posture.”

Lacework’s data-driven approach to cloud security continues to drive significant business value for its customers, including reduced total ownership cost, improved productivity, increased revenue generation and reduced organisational risk. In Q2 2021, Lacework saw its customer count expand as the company continues to support hundreds of customers globally.
Further validating the Lacework platform approach, G2.com, one of the largest and most trusted destinations for software reviews, ranks Lacework at the top of its list for both Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) and Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPP). The company was also named “easiest to use” by G2.com for both categories.
