Company News: Zscaler, the leader in cloud security, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Trustdome, a leading innovator in cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM).

Trustdome's development team and CIEM technology will be combined with Zscaler's existing cloud security posture management (CSPM) platform, as part of Zscaler Cloud Protection (ZCP), providing a comprehensive solution for reducing public cloud attack surfaces and improving security posture. With this acquisition, Zscaler also expands its global footprint with its first development centre in Israel, where the company plans to continue investment.

"We are extending our vision for Zscaler Cloud Protection to help customers securely embrace public cloud platforms and services in today's cloud-first world," said Zscaler CEO, chairman and founder Jay Chaudhry. "The addition of Trustdome's team and innovations in CIEM will strengthen our cloud protection portfolio by enforcing least privilege principles across multi-cloud environments while giving DevOps the freedom to innovate. I am very excited to welcome the Trustdome team to the Zscaler family, and look forward to growing Zscaler's R&D presence in Israel."

Enterprise cloud environments can have hundreds of millions of discrete permissions granted to both humans and cloud services, including unused permissions, non-federated dormant accounts, and misconfigured permissions. Left unchecked, these permissions become an easy path for attackers to infiltrate cloud deployments. Trustdome's CIEM platform helps solve this problem by providing full governance over who and what has access to data, applications and services in public cloud environments.

"Entitlements and permissions are quickly becoming the biggest security challenge in the public cloud. The Trustdome team has built an innovative platform to solve this challenge while allowing development and DevOps teams to maintain speed and agility," said Ofer Hendler, CEO of Trustdome. "We look forward to joining the Zscaler family and accelerating our innovation engine to solve the cloud protection challenges facing the enterprise."

The transaction is expected to close prior to the completion of Zscaler's fiscal third quarter subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
