Portland-based Twistlock provides container and cloud native cybersecurity solutions to protect applications across the development lifecycle and into production. In a recent announcement, the company said it would be opening a global solutions engineering center in Baton Rouge.
The cybersecurity company will be developing plans for the new center from the LSU Innovation Park in Baton Rouge. Twistlock also has offices in New York, London, and Herzliya, Israel.
According to Louisiana Economic Development (LED), the Twistlock platform is designed to prevent attacks against software container applications and other digital resources. “Additionally, the platform provides functionality to scan for vulnerabilities in software containers and other cloud-native systems.”
LED is the state’s economic development agency who began discussions with Twistlock in February about potentially opening a center in Louisiana.
“We are excited that this international company has chosen Baton Rouge for the home of its Global Solutions Engineering Center,” said President and CEO Adam Knapp of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber. “Not only does this announcement represent an expansion of our growing tech sector, but it also brings further collaboration between LSU and the business community.”
