SAN FRANCISCO,  -- Twistlock, the most complete, automated and scalable cloud native cybersecurity platform, announced today that it has integrated with IBM Cloud Security Advisor. IBM Cloud customers are now able to access Twistlock's cloud native security intelligence via IBM Cloud Security Advisor, a unified security interface that makes it easy to manage threats and vulnerabilities in a 'single pane of glass.'

IBM Cloud Security Advisor is designed to summarize critical security information from the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service across easy-to-navigate tiles, such as Twistlock, and to alert users whenever a security issue is detected.

It can help further protect environments by providing remediation steps and insights for the protection of Kubernetes applications in production.

"The rapid rise of cloud native applications is pushing enterprises to take a hard look at how security is integrated into application development and delivery at every level," said Dr. Nataraj Nagaratnam, distinguished engineer and chief technology officer for cloud security, IBM. "The integration of Twistlock's services into IBM Cloud Security Advisor gives IBM Cloud customers additional security and compliance capabilities so they can innovate with confidence."
