Venafi, an inventor and leading provider of machine identity protection, has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Jetstack, a global leader in open source machine identity protection software for Kubernetes and cloud native ecosystems. This acquisition is an industry first that will transform the way modern applications required by Digital Transformation are secured.
“In the race to virtualise everything, businesses need faster application innovation and better security; both are mandatory,” said Jeff Hudson, CEO of Venafi. “Most people see these requirements as opposing forces, but we don’t. We see a massive opportunity for innovation. This acquisition brings together two leaders which are already working together to accelerate the development process while simultaneously securing applications against attack, and there’s a lot more to do. Our mutual customers are urgently asking for more help to solve this problem because they know that speed wins, as long as you don’t crash.”
Digital Transformation has completely disrupted application development and deployment. Cloud native platforms are making it possible for organisations to take advantage of all the cloud has to offer. Application development decisions and power have shifted to developers. Developers are now creating a tidal wave of new machines across business units, clouds and continents in seconds.Click below to share this article
