SAN FRANCISCO, July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Twistlock, the leading provider of cloud container security, announced today it has been named to The Channel Company's exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

Twistlock provides an open-source, customizable security framework for developers of containerized applications. Its virtual container security suite protects containers throughout the application development lifecycle by ensuring that they are compliant with security policies at every stage, from early development through deployment. This not only helps to accelerate app development, but also provides developers with an option to run containers outside a virtual machine environment.

"Our solution is literally just another container that you deploy, manage, and monitor the same way you would the rest of your application, but this container is checking for vulnerabilities inside containers at the application level, as well as looking at the fabric in the host layer to see whether that is sound," said Ben Bernstein, CEO of Twistlock. "We are pleased that CRN has decided to recognize Twistlock's novel approach to container security by naming our company to its Emerging Vendor list."

"Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year's Emerging Vendors List don't disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "We congratulate 2015's Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel."  

Companies included in CRN's 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN's August 2015 issue and will be available online at
