I recently wrote about the momentum we’re seeing around Kubernetes across our customers. Over the past year, customers of all sizes and industries have been standardizing on Kubernetes as the platform for managing their containers and cloud native apps. As the ecosystem has grown, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (where the Kubernetes project lives) started a certification program to make it easier for users to understand what apps are built to work really well with Kubernetes. As the certification program’s site says:

“Users want their workloads to run everywhere — without having to test their applications or those from Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) against every K8s environment. Kubernetes was designed with portability and interoperability in mind, and providers want to enable application portability.

Software conformance ensures that every vendor’s version of Kubernetes supports the required APIs. For enterprises and startups using Kubernetes, conformance guarantees interoperability from one Kubernetes installation to the next. It allows them flexibility and vendor independence.”

Today, I’m proud to announce that Twistlock is the first (and currently only) security platform that’s Kubernetes Certified. This work reflects our long term commitment to delivering truly cloud native cyber security, and builds on previous community contributions like our work in Docker, OpenShift, the Kubernetes CIS Benchmark, and NIST SP 800-190. I’ll go into more details on this during my talk at KubeCon tomorrow and we’d love to show you Twistlock running on Kubernetes (deployed as a Replication Controller and Daemon Set, of course) in booth G28.
