VMware Acquires Threat Detection and Response Firm E8 Security

Apr 2, 2018

By Eduard Kovacs on March 30, 2018 VMware announced this week that it has acquired threat detection and response company E8 Security, whose technology will be used to improve the Workspace ONE digital workspace platform. This is the third acquisition made by VMware in less than two months. California-based E8 Security emerged from stealth mode in March 2015 and it has raised a total of nearly $22 million – more than $23 million if you count seed funding. E8 Security has developed a platform that helps organizations detect malicious activity by monitoring user and device behavior. The product also improves incident response by providing the data needed to analyze threats. VMware plans on using E8 Security’s technology to improve its Workspace ONE product, specifically a recently announced intelligence feature that provides actionable information and recommendations, and automation for remediation tasks. “By adding E8 Security’s user and entity behavior analytics capabilities to insights from VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence, our customers will be able to streamline management, remediation, and automation to improve the employee experience and the security of their digital workspace,” explained Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager of VMware’s End-User Computing (EUC) business. VMware announced in February the acquisition of CloudCoreo , a Seattle-based cloud security startup launched less than two years ago. The company has created a product that allows organizations to identify public cloud risks and continuously monitor cloud infrastructure to ensure that applications and data are safe. The virtualization giant plans on using the CloudCoreo technology and team to help customers secure their applications in the cloud. Also in February, VMware announced its intent to buy CloudVelox , a company that specializes in providing workload mobility between the data center and public clouds. CloudVelox’s solutions also include data, system and application security capabilities. Financial terms have not been disclosed for these recent acquisitions.
