WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Twistlock, the leading provider of container and cloud native cybersecurity solutions, today announced that it has been named a 2017 SINET 16 Innovator. Each year, SINET evaluates hundreds of emerging cybersecurity companies from around the world on their technology and product solutions. The 16 most innovative and compelling companies, known as the SINET 16, are chosen and invited to present their products and solutions on stage at the annual SINET showcase held on November 8th and 9th in Washington D.C.
"We are honored to be recognized amongst such an innovative group of cybersecurity companies," said Twistlock CTO John Morello. "As the industry's first enterprise security platform for containers and cloud native environments, being recognized as a 2017 SINET 16 innovator is incredible validation of the leading work our team is doing around cloud native cybersecurity solutions on a global scale. We're looking forward to collaborating further with cybersecurity leaders as part of the SINET 16."
Twistlock has consistently demonstrated its commitment to evolving today's technology to address security threats, with this SINET recognition marking the latest industry leadership milestone. In September, the company shipped Twistlock 2.2, delivering advanced threat analytics and prevention. The release included several machine learning driven layers such as a Cloud Native Network Firewall and Incident Explorer, as well as runtime defense down to the host OS and comprehensive compliance monitoring and enforcement for Kubernetes. This is the 11th time Twistlock has shipped a major release of the product over the past ~2.5 years.
As organizations move to containers and the cloud native ecosystem, they need a more automated, comprehensive cybersecurity platform to protect against real-world attackers and APTs. This is precisely where Twistlock's revolutionary products come in. By seamlessly integrating across the application delivery lifecycle, Twistlock uses machine learning to model app behavior and automatically create and enforce whitelist based runtime protection and firewalling. This automated approach to security not only reduces the workload on security teams, but by profiling every application and preventing any anomalous behavior, ultimately delivers more scalable security than ever before.
