VMware to acquire Octarine

By

IT infrastructure software vendor VMware plans to acquire security software vendor Octarine.

Octarine provides a security platform for Kubernetes that helps simplify DevSecOps and allows cloud-native environments to be intrinsically secure.

Building Octarine's platform into VMware's security will, according to the company, improve visibility of cloud-native environments, allow content-based policies to protect the privacy and integrity of information, help analyse and control application risks before deployment, assist with native anomaly detection and threat monitoring, and provide runtime threat detection for Kubernetes workloads.

The plan is to embed the Octarine technology into the VMware Carbon Black Cloud, further reducing the need for additional sensors in the stack and taking advantage of the VMware Tanzu platform.

"Acquiring Octarine will enable us to further expand VMware's intrinsic security strategy to containers and Kubernetes environments by embedding the Octarine technology into the VMware Carbon Black Cloud," said VMware security business unit general manager and senior vice president Patrick Morley.

"This, combined with native integrations with Tanzu, vSphere, NSX and VMware Cloud Foundation, will create what we believe is a unique and compelling solution for intrinsically securing workloads. And, with the addition of our AppDefense capabilities merged into the platform, we can fundamentally transform how workloads are better secured."

No information about the terms of the transaction or a timeframe for its completion were provided.
