Twistlock Container Security Solution Integrates With Google Cloud Platform

Helping Container-Oriented Developers Audit and Manage Risk for Containerized Applications

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2015) - Twistlock, the leading provider of container security solutions, today announced Twistlock is available on Google Cloud Platform -- specifically, Google Container Engine and Google Container Registry.

Software components inside a container stack may contain vulnerabilities. To manage risk due to vulnerabilities, you must identify and remediate those before a container image gets deployed. Twistlock's technologies help identify vulnerabilities that exist in open source container images, whether stored in a container registry or as a running container. In addition, Twistlock can detect anomalies at runtime and help remediate unexpected behaviors.

Twistlock's integration with Google Cloud Platform provides these functions for containers stored in Container Registry and running in Container Engine. You can:

  • Scan images in Google Container Registry for CVE and for policy compliance
  • Detect anomalies in a running Container Engine cluster and take automated corrective actions, such as raising an alert or disconnecting the container's network access
  • Generate reports of policy violations in both Container Registry and Container Engine

"Containers bring unprecedented speed and agility that allow DevOps to quickly respond to changing business needs. But organizations are concerned about the robustness of policy management and the ability to support organizational compliance needs," said Ben Bernstein, CEO and co-founder of Twistlock. "This integration is significant because Google Cloud Platform users can use Twistlock technologies to have the visibility and controls they need to maximize business efficiency and potential for innovations."
