Twistlock, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of cloud container security solutions, raised $17m in Series B funding.
The round was led by Polaris Partners with participation from existing investors YL Ventures, TenEleven and Rally Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, Brendan Hannigan of Polaris joined Twistlock’s Board of Directors as Chairman.
The company, which has raised $30m to date, intends to use the funds to scale the team and deliver innovative security solutions.
Led by Ben Bernstein, CEO and co-founder, Twistlock provides an enterprise security suite for container security. The company’s technology addresses risks on the host and within the application of the container, enabling enterprises to enforce security policies, monitor and audit activity and identify and isolate threats in a container or cluster of containers.
Twistlock recently released the 2.0 release, which brings enhanced visibility and compliance to containerized environments to handle stringent enterprise security requirements.
The company also has offices in Portland, OR, New York, Portland, San Francisco and Herzliya, Israel.
