Twistlock Named a 451 Research Firestarter for Cybersecurity Leadership
The Cloud Native Cybersecurity Vendor Recognized by Leading Analyst Firm for Market Disruption and Success in the Cybersecurity Industry
Twistlock announced its most recent accolade as a 451 Research Firestarter, recognizing the firm’s contribution to innovation in the technology industry.
Founded in 2015, Twistlock was the first security platform to protect virtual containers, the first to protect serverless functions, and the first to unify protection for all modern workloads into a single, automated, and API driven platform that uses actionable intelligence and environmental context to prioritize risks and protect against threats known and unknown.
By using the strengths of cloud native computing, Twistlock has built a cybersecurity platform that is more efficient and more effective than traditional solutions – enabling companies undergoing a DevOps transformation to integrate security across the application lifecycle, and deploy secure software at speed.
“Traditional cybersecurity is broken, rooted in manual processes and patchwork collections of siloed tools that can’t protect modern workloads or keep pace with the speed of development,” said Ben Bernstein, chief executive officer, Twistlock. “To address this, we built an automated, end-to-end security platform that now protects the cloud native workloads of hundreds of enterprises globally. The 451 Research Firestarter award is a testament to how we are innovating and leading in the cloud native security space.”
451 Research’s Firestarter program recognizes exceptional innovation within the information technology industry. Introduced in late 2018, the program is exclusively analyst-led, and allows its teams of technology and market experts to nominate organizations it believes are significantly contributing to the overall pace and extent of innovation in the market.
“451 Research built its reputation on helping clients understand innovation in the technology industry, and the Firestarters program is a further demonstration of this,”said Fernando Montenegro, Senior Analyst – Information Security, 451 Research. “We wanted to bring the companies we think are making the most innovative and disruptive developments to the forefront of everyone’s mind, and give them some public recognition for their efforts – much like Twistlock.”
