Microsoft Azure Security

Security for Linux and Windows Containers on Microsoft Azure

Enterprises using Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) to build, manage, and run their containers at scale also leverage Twistlock to provide complete security of their environments — both Linux and Windows. Ensure that images and containers are free of vulnerabilities and compliance policies are implemented, while runtime protection and cloud native firewalls secure your environment and networks from active threats. Twistlock is proud to be an official partner with Microsoft.

Vulnerability Prevention from Development to Runtime

Twistlock detects vulnerabilities in your images throughout their lifecycle, from the beginning of the CI process, to your registries, to all your production deployments whether using ACS or AKS. Twistlock was an official security launch partner for Azure Container Registry (ACR).

Implement the Docker and Kubernetes CIS Benchmarks

With compliance rules covering over 200 security best practices and pre-built policy templates for specific regulations like HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR, Twistlock can automatically enforce compliance policies across the container application lifecycle.

Advanced Threat Intelligence

The Twistlock Intelligence Stream sources and aggregates vulnerability information directly from 30+ upstream projects, commercial sources, and proprietary research from Twistlock Labs — providing data others can’t, so you have the most precise and comprehensive vulnerability and threat data to protect Linux and Windows images and containers on Azure.

Risk Prioritization Tailored to Your Environment

Vulnerability Explorer helps you understand what risks are most critical to you by factoring in runtime knowledge and advanced threat metrics about your specific environment, so you can measure and prioritize remediation of top vulnerabilities.

Runtime Security for your Containers

From network and application firewalls, to container runtime defense, to host protection — Twistlock is the only security tool you need to defend your containers running on Azure. Machine-learning powered runtime protection secures your entire environment from the beginning of the build process through production.
