An adiabatic system, by definition, is a system where there is no transfer of heat, but work instead. The walls are insulated, not isolated because insulated just means it prevents the flow of heat. Isolated walls would mean that there would be absolutely no exchange between the system and its surroundings. However, energy as work can still be transferred with an adiabatic container.
