Twistlock is the cloud native cybersecurity platform for modern applications. From vulnerability management to runtime defense and firewalls, Twistlock offers complete security for cloud native apps.


When Twistlock detects anomalies, it generates alerts. Alerts are raised when the rules that make up your policy are violated. You can configure Twistlock to route alerts to PagerDuty.
