Companion Guide to NIST's Container Security SP

Twistlock’s Companion Guide to NIST Container Security SP is designed to provide a diverse set of readers–from engineers to CISOs, with a clear understanding of the threat model and recommended defenses for a cloud native environment. The guide addresses top challenges and helps organizations enable countermeasures, specifically through Twistlock, that meet NIST compliance guidelines more quickly and easily.

  • Threats and risks present for government organizations and enterprises deploying modern applications
  • Core requirements for securing containerized applications
  • Official mappings to Twistlock for quickly and easily implementing the requirements

John Morello, CTO of Twistlock, partnered with NIST to draft SP 800-190, had this to say about the SP and Twistlock’s companion guide: “The existence of the container security SP is a great validation of containers as a first tier enterprise technology. But, implementation comes with its challenges. Enforcing compliance across the entire cloud native ‘stack’ isn’t easy. The Twistlock Companion Guide sets out to solve those challenges, taking a prescriptive approach to the steps required to enforce NIST compliance, so it acts as a sort of deployment template. By enabling countermeasures through Twistlock, organizations can implement the NIST recommendations with minimal extra configuration.
