Twistlock, a Docker and container security platform provider, has introduced the Twistlock Advantage Program (TAP) for MSSPs and cloud technology consultants and resellers. The company unveiled TAP in advance of the DockerCon conference, which kicks off tomorrow in San Francisco.

TAP partners can deliver Docker and container security and consulting services to accelerate cloud-native technology adoption, according to a prepared statement. Also, TAP partners can provide tools and practices for customers that run cloud-native applications and leverage development and security operations (DevSecOps) practices.

TAP provides technical, marketing and go-to-market support to MSSPs, cloud resellers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators (SIs), Twistlock said. It enables partners to deploy cloud-native technologies at speed and scale, Twistlock indicated, and help organizations adopt DevSecOps best practices.

TAP brings together cloud, development and operations and security vendors, consultants and resellers to help Twistlock customers adopt cloud-native technology and DevSecOps best practices, VP of Business Development and Strategic Alliances John Leon stated. That way, TAP partners can deliver technology integrations, consulting services and reference architecture to help customers seamlessly integrate security at every step of the cloud-native journey.
