Twistlock Secures $33 Million in Series C Funding, Opens Baton Rouge Location

Portland-based Twistlock provides container and cloud native cybersecurity solutions to protect applications across the development lifecycle and into production. The company announced today it raised $33 million in Series C funding led by ICONIQ Capital.

The three year old company  will use the funding to scale operations and build its customer and partner base.

“Since our first release in 2015, it’s been clear that containers and cloud native were the future – and that there was a huge gap in security platforms that not only protected these new technologies – but also leveraged them to deliver stronger defense than ever before possible,” shared Twistlock CEO Ben Bernstein. “We’re proud of our leadership in the industry and the hundreds of customers protected by Twistlock today. Our partnership with ICONIQ reflects this success, and their focus on helping market leaders cement their position sets the stage for our ongoing growth.”

Back in May, Twistlock shared they had selected Baton Rouge for its new global solutions engineering center, which is now open.

Twistlock also has offices in New York, London, and Herzliya, Israel. To date, the company has received $63 million in total funding.
