SAN FRANCISCO, April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Twistlock, the leading provider of cloud container security solutions, today announced its Chief Technology Officer, John Morello, will be speaking at DockerCon 2017 in Austin, Texas on Tuesday, April 18 from 2:20 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. CDT in Ballroom B, Ecosystem 1. The session, "Scaling App Defense with Intent-Based Security," will focus on the differences between containers and more traditional security approaches and why containers are a better option due to their declarative nature.
"A common misconception about containers is that they are inherently less secure than traditional virtualization," said Morello. "I'll not only debunk this myth, but also shed light on how security teams can leverage the fundamental characteristics of containers to improve the security of the apps that run in them."
DockerCon is a three-day conference that will include workshops and hands-on labs, more than 60 breakout sessions, and the opportunity to connect with more than 5,000 attendees about the Docker and container ecosystem. In addition to John Morello's session mentioned above, Twistlock will be hosting the following events:
