Rancher Security

Scalable Security for Kubernetes and Rancher

Enterprises using Rancher to manage and deploy applications on Kubernetes also use Twistlock to provide complete security of their environments. Twistlock ensures 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. Rancher Labs is an official member of the Twistlock Advantage Partner (TAP) Program.

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 powered by Rancher. By integrating with Rancher Pipelines, Jenkins, or any other CI tool your teams are using, Twistlock provides immediate vulnerability status and enforcement as your developers build and ship images.

Compliance Across the Application Lifecycle

With compliance rules covering over 300 security best practices and pre-built policy templates for specific regulations like HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, and NIST SP 800-190, Twistlock can automatically enforce compliance policies across the build to runtime. Twistlock is the only platform that continuously monitors your hosts, images, and containers for compliance.

Unmatched Threat Intelligence

The Twistlock Intelligence Stream sources and aggregates vulnerability information directly from 30+ upstream projects, commercial sources, and proprietary research from Twistlock Labs. This powerful data ensures that you have the most precise and comprehensive vulnerability and threat data to protect images, containers, and hosts.

Risk Prioritization Tailored to Your Environment

Twistlock ranks vulnerabilities and compliance issues by leveraging our proprietary risk score, a combination of CVSS score and metrics about your specific environment, so you can measure and prioritize remediation of top risks.

Complete Runtime Security for Kubernetes

From network and application firewalls, to container runtime defense, to host protection, Twistlock is the only security tool you need to defend your clusters against vulnerabilities and security threats. Twistlock Defender deploys as a DaemonSet to provide automatically-created explicit allow list protection for every pod along with microservices-aware layer 3 and layer 7 firewalls.

“Ranchers’ container management platform makes it easy for enterprises to develop test and run Kubernetes applications at scale, regardless of environment. Our partnership with Twistlock aligns extremely well as we support the broadest set of customer environments. Customer choice, combined with secure and fast time to production equals a great result for our customers.”
