To analyze application, host, and user behavior, Lacework uses a lightweight Windows agent, which securely forwards collected metadata to the Lacework platform for analysis. The system requirements for the Windows agent are described below.
Supported Operating Systems
The Windows agent runs on the following 64-bit Windows Server operating systems:
|Windows Server 2022|
|Windows Server 2019|
|Windows Server 2016|
|Windows Server 2012 R2|
|Windows Storage Server 2012 R2|
- The operating system must support Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2.
- The Windows agent is not intended for use on personal computer versions of Windows operating systems that are installed on desktop computers, laptops, and workstations.
The Windows agent supports the following flexible deployment models:
Cloud-Based Host Machine Recommendations
|Cloud Service||Instance Type||Recommendation|
|AWS||General Purpose (t2 & t3 types) |
Compute Optimized (c4 & c5)
|Minimum 4vCPU machine|
|Azure||General Purpose (D2s & D4s types)||Minimum 4vCPU machine|
|GCP||e2-standard-4||Minimum 4vCPU machine|
Other instances that meet the minimum requirements of the installed operating system are also supported. However, using a machine that does not meet the recommendations described above could result in higher CPU utilization by the agent.
On-premises Host Machine Recommendations
- 2 core CPU
- 4 GB RAM
