Japanese firm Trend Micro which has its headquarters in California has acquired Canada based hybrid cloud security firm Immunio for an undisclosed amount. By doing so, the security company is in a plan to increase the automated protection that it can provide throughout the DevOps lifecycle-software engineering to seek and unify its software development with software operations.
In a press release made yesterday, Trend Micro said that it will be demonstrating all the said capabilities of the combined companies at AWS reinvent 2017 scheduled for Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“We are super excited to acquire Immunio’s application protection technology, their team of application security experts and their customers”, said Bill McGee, Senior Vice President, and General Manager, of Trend Micro- Hybrid Cloud Division.
“Trend Micro is a perfect partner that shares our vision of protecting Web Apps and APIs that make the web what it is today. And Trend believes that the shift to the cloud will offer a unique opportunity to companies to do things the right way”, said Hamami.
Getting into the facts, Immunio is a Montreal based four-year-old security firm co-founded by Zaid Al Hamami, and Mike Milner. The company used to focus on automated application protection by bringing change in Application Security (AppSec). The said company brought in a revolution by introducing Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) in 2013.
The press release also mentioned that there will be an enhancement in container specific security capabilities from early next month, allowing support of container image scanning that allows security issues to be identified and resolved before production.
