AI Description

Twistlock runtime protection uses machine learning to automatically build a model of every application in your environment. Models define all the known-good behaviors of your containers, across process, network, file system, and system call sensors. Models are correlated to image IDs, so every time you build your app, you get a model uniquely calculated and tailored for that specific build. Twistlock’s CNAF significantly increases the defense in depth of the standard WAF security using advanced, application specific, machine learning models. It also applies a multi-step solution to ensure our classification accuracy is of the highest quality. Twistlock Incident Explorer applies machine learning to identify attack patterns in an organization’s container environment and display security incidents in a clear, actionable format. Rather than requiring users to manually sift through data and correlate multiple actions from multiple sensors, Incident Explorer automatically builds a chain of events to give full visibility into an attack by highlighting key indicators ‒ enabling more rapid and effective incident response.
