VMware to Acquire Cloud Security Startup Mesh7

VMware has announced a plan to acquire cloud-based application security provider Mesh7. This is VMware’s first acquisition of 2021.

Through this acquisition, VMware will boost their microservices, Kubernetes, and cloud native capabilities. At the same time, Mesh7 will benefit from VMware’s extensive resources.

“By joining forces with VMware, we expect to be able to accelerate the adoption of Mesh7 by enabling DevSecOps as an inherent part of VMware’s modern application platforms and solutions,” explained Mesh7 founders Amit Jain and Pratik Roychowdhury in a joint statement. “Developers, security, and operation teams will each gain a better understanding of when, where and how APIs are communicating, even across multi-cloud environments, leading to better DevSecOps.”
