Twistlock Offers Security for Serverless Apps; Extending its Industry-Leading Cloud-Native Security Platform
Twistlock, the leading provider of cloud container security solutions, today announced the availability of serverless security extended to frameworks like AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions and Azure Functions. With Twistlock's newest offering, teams have a centralized management tool to detect and prevent vulnerabilities across their container and serverless environments.

Twistlock is the first container security vendor to offer a complete cloud-native security platform not limited to containers, and serverless security is a natural extension of the company's existing capabilities. Serverless computing is growing significantly, with double-digit percentage adoption of tools such as AWS Lambda that allow for a true platform-as-a-service environment.

"As we work with enterprises around the world that are deploying cloud-native apps, we're seeing increased usage of serverless functions in mission-critical environments," said John Morello, chief technology officer at Twistlock. "Our mission is to give customers cloud-native cyber security from top to bottom. With this feature, customers have a single security tool that provides visibility, detection and prevention across the entire topology of their cloud-native apps."

For enterprises deploying cloud-native apps, serverless functions versus containers are not an either-or proposition. Many organizations using serverless are using it for specific scenarios, and using containers in other scenarios. One of Twistlock's customers is using Lambda to do event-driven processing jobs, which supports a broader actuarial forecasting app running in Docker.

Twistlock's Serverless Security capabilities are available now as part of Twistlock's Vulnerability Explorer to existing customers in private beta, and scheduled for general availability in Fall 2017. For a live demo, stop by Twistlock's booth at Black Hat USA, or get in touch at
