Integration enforces full lifecycle software quality and compliance for GKE workloads

PORTLAND, Ore., July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Twistlock today announced support for Binary Authorization, coming soon to beta on Google Cloud Platform.  With this integration, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) customers will now be able to use Twistlock to enforce attestations made with Binary Authorization, ensuring only compliant and trusted images are promoted across the development lifecycle and deployed to production.
