PORTLAND, OR, June 05, 2018 / Twistlock, the leading provider of container and cloud native cybersecurity solutions, today announced that its cloud native platform provides protection for applications running in Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Customers using Amazon EKS to manage and scale their container environments can rely on Twistlock’s automated, whitelist-based runtime defense and cloud native firewalling to protect their applications against threats.

“Many of our customers run Kubernetes in their AWS environments today – and have been eagerly awaiting the general availability of EKS. We’ve worked closely with AWS to ensure full support for EKS throughout the preview period – and are excited to bring Twistlock’s simple deployment, and full lifecycle, full stack protection to applications running in EKS at the public launch. The great thing about EKS is that because it’s based on standard Kubernetes, everything we do already just works – making it easy for customers to migrate safely” said John Leon, VP of BD and Strategic Alliances for Twistlock.

“Twistlock allows our team to easily protect containerized applications running in Articulate’s AWS environment. With Twistlock we’re able to identify and address risks before apps reach production – helping our teams ship safer code and gain our customers trust.” said Pim Polderman, Platform Engineer at Articulate

By supporting Amazon EKS, Twistlock builds upon its existing protection of AWS workloads. In July 2017, Twistlock became the first product to provide security for AWS Lambda – giving customers the ability to protect containers and serverless functions in a unified platform. As a launch partner to Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), Twistlock has long ensured that users of AWS container services can enforce trusted images and prevent vulnerable code from reaching production. And with native support for Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), Twistlock ensures that AWS customers running containers are protected – regardless of deployment method.
