Today VMware announced its intent to acquire Octarine.
First of all, we would like to thank our customers and partners around the globe for driving our innovation and roadmap. We feel privileged to have had the opportunity to grow together in understanding the opportunities and challenges of achieving security, compliance and governance in cloud native environments.
We would also like to thank the cloud native community. We are committed to continue working together on making Kubernetes and its ecosystem more powerful and easy to manage, without compromising security.
Three years ago we set out on a path to provide a different kind of security solution, one that addresses the profound shift that cloud native computing brings both to the technology stack and to organizational roles. DevSecOps is now becoming a mantra in many organizations—and for a good reason. These paradigm shifts fueled our imagination and innovation—lighting our path and defining our roadmap. Our engineering team was delighted to launch itself at new evolving challenges and provide new solutions for this new world. While we are very proud of what we have accomplished so far, there is so much more we have planned in our roadmap. And we continue to expand our platform functionality in order to provide more value to our customers.
What a delightful new chapter for Octarine and its vision. VMware’s commitment to cloud native computing and intrinsic security, which have been demonstrated by its product announcements and by recent acquisitions, makes it an ideal home for Octarine. We are very excited to have the opportunity to be part of VMware’s “best in class” technology portfolio and engage with new customers.
