Trend Micro Incorporated (TSE: 4704) has acquired Montréal based Immunio. Financial terms were nor disclosed.
IMMUNIO is a pioneer in real-time web application security (RASP), providing automatic detection and protection against application security vulnerabilities.
Founded in 2013 by Zaid Al Hamami and Mike Milner, IMMUNIO had raised $8.3 million in seed and Series A financing from Hoxton Ventures, White Star Capital, Bloomberg Beta, Real Ventures, BDC Capital.
“We are excited to acquire Immunio’s application protection technology, their team of application security experts and their customers,” said Bill McGee, SVP and GM of Hybrid Cloud Security at Trend Micro. “Technology changes, like cloud computing and container platforms, are enabling faster application development. Immunio’s run-time application security allows our customers to increase protection against software vulnerabilities within the applications they are building.”
Trend Micro is also enhancing its container-specific security capabilities, by supporting container image scanning, which allows security issues to be identified and resolved prior to production release. Customers will be able to scan images in the container registry so that development teams can fix issues prior to deployment and apply run-time protection capabilities based on findings from the imaging. These capabilities will be generally available in April 2018.
Trend Micro’s new capabilities fit neatly into the DevOps lifecycle, with Immunio bringing early detection and protection against application vulnerabilities, and container image scanning allowing for the publishing and protection of secure container images. The result of these additions are secure, resilient applications and dramatic improvements in run-time operations, whether they are located on-premise or in the public cloud.
McGee continued, “Many of our advanced customers have adopted DevOps lifecycle practices and are using Trend Micro Deep Security in an automated way to provide server and application protection. These new advancements are extending the protection we provide and ensuring that organizations can continue to develop and deploy applications quickly while remaining secure.”
