Twistlock Scores $33M to Expand Its Cloud Security Empire

Twistlock, which specializes in tools for securing containerized and other cloud-native applications, is ringing the cash register for $33 million in Series C funding, bringing its total funding so far to $63 million, the company announced Wednesday.

Twistlock provides a unified security platform to replace multiple tools such as vulnerability assessment and application firewalls. It protects applications through the entire lifecycle, and provides automated protection, according to a company blog post by Ben Bernstein, Twistlock co-founder and CEO.

It intends to use the new cash influx to "scale its operations and build upon the leading customer and partner base established over the past three years," as well as throw a kick-ass party (we hope).

Now entering its fifth year, the 2020 Vision Executive Summit is an exclusive meeting of global CSP executives focused on navigating the disruptive forces at work in telecom today. Join us in Lisbon on December 4-6 to meet with fellow experts as we define the future of next-gen communications and how to make it profitable.

The company first released its technology in 2015, and claims more than 25% of Fortune 100 companies as customers, including McKesson, Walgreens, and Aetna and USAA. Twistlock 2.5, released this month, unifies protection for containers, serverless functions and container-as-a-service platforms such as AWS Fargate. Twistlock 2.5 also provides forensics capabilities.

The round was led by ICONIQ Capital, along with existing investors YL Ventures, TenEleven, Rally Ventures, Polaris Partners and Dell Technologies Capital, the company said in a press release
