Enterprise security company Twistlock has raised $2.5 million in seed funding, led by YL Ventures.

Twistlock also unveiled its security suite designed to give enterprises the visibility and control they need over their container-based applications and data. Twistlocks container security enables enterprises to maximize the efficiency, portability and scalability of their containers, while maintaining end-to-end security.

YL Ventures managing partner Yoav Leitersdorf said, YL Ventures is proud to back the first company capable of making containers, and more specifically Docker containers, secure enough for the enterprise. Twistlock provides the missing critical security features enterprises require before they can put containers in production environments. With the launch of Twistlock, the container market as a whole can take a huge leap forward.

Twistlock CEO Ben Bernstein said "Enterprises are in the midst of a data center revolution. Twistlocks container security suite provides the fuel enterprises need to accelerate their ability to use containers to develop, share and scale the applications that drive their business forward. With our solution, security operation teams finally have the visibility and granular controls they need over their Dockerized workloads.

Twistlock was founded by Ben Bernstein and Dima Stopel, who bring extensive enterprise security expertise in both the defense and private sector; both spent more than 10 years in the Microsoft R&D center in Israel and served in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) intelligence corps.
