BAFTA, Emmy, and Grammy-nominated Untold Studios has selected Lacework to secure its cloud environments.
The studio is renowned for its contributions to music, TV, and advertising. Untold Studios is entirely cloud-based.

Cloud Security Takes Centre Stage
Sam Reid, CTO of Untold Studios, said: “Being an entirely cloud-based studio is a key driver … Lacework is a great security partner on our journey because of its ability to provide security at cloud scale,”
This partnership ensures Untold Studios’ focus remains on delivering high-quality creative output, with the reassurance of a secure cloud environment.
Untold Studios, established in 2018, claims to be the first studio to be built fully in the cloud, allowing it to scale and innovate faster than traditional studios. The studio was able to launch just six weeks after its founding and has doubled in size over the past year.
Lacework played a crucial role in automating Untold Studios’ compliance with Motion Picture Association (MPA) standards, significantly reducing the manual effort required for compliance.
The studio frequently undertakes short-term, large-scale projects, utilising Amazon Web Services Spot Instances.
Lacework’s security solutions enable the secure management of these ephemeral environments, ensuring safety as instances are created and decommissioned after project completion.
Ryan Sheldrake, Field CTO EMEA at Lacework, said: “Untold Studios is known for being an industry-leading creative studio … Lacework is proud to be a security partner, allowing Untold Studios to use the cloud to deliver breathtaking creative projects knowing their environments are secure.”
This collaboration with Lacework underscores Untold Studios’ commitment to leveraging advanced cloud technology for creative pursuits while maintaining high standards of security and compliance.
