VMware continued its charge forward with its Kubernetes strategy with the proposed acquisition of US-based startup Octarine.
Founded in 2017, Octarine provides a security platform for Kubernetes applications. It will be integrated into the Carbon Black Cloud once the acquisition is completed, the vendor announced at its virtual Connect 2020 event.
VMware expects Octarine's technology will improve security capabilities in its existing IT and DevOps ecosystems.
"Acquiring Octarine will enable us to further expand VMware's intrinsic security strategy to containers and Kubernetes environments by embedding the Octarine technology into the VMware Carbon Black Cloud," said Patrick Morley, GM and SVP of VMware's Security Business unit.
"This, combined with native integrations with Tanzu, vSphere, NSX and VMware Cloud Foundation, will create what we believe is a unique and compelling solution for intrinsically securing workloads. And, with the addition of our AppDefense capabilities merged into the platform, we can fundamentally transform how workloads are better secured."
