Google Cloud gains security for Docker containers

Container security startup Twistlock announced general availability of its Container Security Suite on Tuesday. It features integration with Google Cloud Platform that provides container image scanning, access control functions, and the ability to enforce runtime security policies.

Container Security Suite, in beta since last May, adds multiple layers of monitoring to containers, such as the ability to scan applications in containers to detect vulnerabilities, and to apply access control logic and policies to the containers. This lets businesses apply security controls and defenses without getting in the way of how developers work with containers, said Chenxi Wang, chief strategy officer of Twistlock.
