Twistlock releases Twistlock 2.0 containerized environments

Twistlock, the provider of cloud container security solutions, has launched Twistlock 2.0, the company said.

The latest release of Twistlock´s flagship product includes an updated user interface, significant performance improvements and several new features that enable organizations to stop an attack before it starts.

While Twistlock 2.0 was built to handle even the most stringent of security requirements found in many enterprises, it also benefits smaller development teams that need more simplicity and agility to take their innovations to market more quickly and safely.

To better help companies stay in front of a potential compromise, Twistlock 2.0 builds on the capability to identify vulnerabilities as part of the continuous integration (CI) process and relies on frequent monitoring to prevent the deployment of unsafe and non-compliant images in the first place.

Initially introduced in Twistlock 1.6 as a way to visualize how containers interact with each other, Runtime Radar 2.0 builds on that capability to provide a single view into the status, connectivity, and risk state of an organization´s environment. In a single glance, Runtime Radar allows organizations to visualize their entire environment from relationships between pods to processes to network calls,file access and system calls for individual containers.

Twistlock is the industry´s first enterprise security suite for container security. Twistlock´s technology addresses risks on the host and within the application of the container, enabling enterprises to consistently enforce security policies, monitor and audit activity and identify and isolate threats in a container or cluster of containers.
