Venafi, a privately held cybersecurity company that develops software to secure and protect cryptographic keys and digital certificateshas procured Jetstack, a global leader in open source machine identity protection software for Kubernetes and cloud native ecosystems.
This acquisition is the perfect one for digital transformation with security.“In the race to virtualize everything, businesses need faster application innovation and better security; both are mandatory,” said Jeff Hudson, CEO of Venafi.
Cloud has been of great help as the digital transformation has completely messed up the application development and deployment.
“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 who 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.”
All machines need an exclusive identity to connect, communicate, and execute securely. Developers need the quickest, easiest, and most agile ways to build with TLS, SSH, and code signing certificates, all of which serve as machine identities.
