VMware to acquire Mesh7

VMware announced its plans to acquire cloud-native app security provider Mesh7. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

California-based Mesh7 offers run-time cloud application security insights to detect and mitigate the security risks of modern applications.

Executive Opinion

In a blogpost, SVP/GM, Networking and Security Business Unit, VMware, Tom Gillis, said, "Mesh7 has developed a contextual API behavior security solution based on Envoy that better protects modern cloud-native applications. Mesh7 technology helps customers improve application resiliency and reliability and reduce blind spots through the integration of deep Layer 7 insights with cloud, host, and reputation data. The Mesh7 solution empowers development, security, and operations leaders to address observability, security, and compliance for cloud-native, API-based, and other distributed applications."

Amit Jain and Pratik Roychowdhury, Founders at Mesh7, said, "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. 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."

VMware's Mesh7 Acquisition

The acquisition will help VMware to bring visibility, discovery, and better security to APIs.Also, VMware will enable developers with more secure operations for modern application connectivity services.

Tanzu Service Mesh brings consistent connectivity and security for microservices across Kubernetes clusters and clouds. VMware intends to integrate Mesh7’s contextual API behavior security solution with Tanzu Service Mesh. The integration will allow VMware to build an understanding of application components interacting with different APIs. Additional insights into when, where, and how applications and microservices are communicating via APIs within multi-cloud environments will be also possible, notes the announcement.
