(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Wix.com, one of the leading web hosting platforms with millions of users worldwide, has selected Twistlock to protect Docker containers across its production environments.
Wix is expanding its usage of containers and has a growing need to ensure the security of all containers. The Twistlock solution helps to identify vulnerabilities and enforce security policies across the container lifecycle, which ensure that all containers, no matter which applications they are running, have a consistent security model from development through production.
Wix uses many open source technologies, as such, they particularly like Twistlock’s integration with online CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) data, which makes it easy to find and fix vulnerabilities. This capability is deployed not just in Linux components, but also in Java and Node.js parts of Wix’s application stack. Additionally, Twistlock’s container and image hardening policies have made it easier to centrally define and enforce security policies across Wix environments.
“Security is a top priority for us at Wix and Twistlock has made it easier for us to protect our customers even as we adopt new technologies like containers. Their integration with CVE databases has been particularly valuable in helping us find and fix vulnerabilities within containers, and the hardening policies help us ensure that the same security standards are enforced throughout the development lifecycle,” saidGregory Man, Manager on the System Team at Wix.
“All of us at Twistlock are grateful for the opportunity to work with Wix and are excited about the opportunity to keep improving our technology based on their real world feedback,” said Twistlock CEO,Ben Bernstein.
Based inSan Francisco, Calif., Twistlock is the first end-to-end enterprise security solution that keeps container-based applications safe. The company works with the virtual container leader, Docker, and the broader ecosystem, to improve the overall security of containers through the efforts of the open source community. The company is funded by YL Ventures.
