Trustdome Cloud Security Co Bought by Zscaler
The price has yet to be disclosed.
Israeli cybersecurity firm Trustdome, which innovates in Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM), has been acquired by American cloud security firm Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ). Trustdome’s development team and CIEM technology will be combined with Zscaler’s existing Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) platform, as part of Zscaler Cloud Protection (ZCP). The price of the acquisition has not yet been revealed.
“We are extending our vision for Zscaler Cloud Protection to help customers securely embrace public cloud platforms and services in today’s cloud-first world,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO, chairman and founder, Zscaler, Inc. “The addition of Trustdome’s team and innovations in CIEM will strengthen our Cloud Protection portfolio by enforcing least privilege principles across multi-cloud environments while giving DevOps the freedom to innovate. I am very excited to welcome the Trustdome team to the Zscaler family, and look forward to growing Zscaler’s R&D presence in Israel.”
Enterprise cloud environments can have hundreds of millions of discrete permissions granted to both humans and cloud services, including unused permissions, non-federated dormant accounts, and misconfigured permissions. Left unchecked, these permissions become an easy path for attackers to infiltrate cloud deployments. Trustdome’s CIEM platform helps solve this problem by providing full governance over who and what has access to data, applications and services in public cloud environments.
Cybersecurity is more important than ever. Hackers are not only motivated by money or politics. They often just like being malicious. So even small companies need to be on their guard and be sure to properly protect their systems. In recent months two different Israeli companies were ransomware attacks by the Black Shadow hackers.
Today we announce plans to acquire leading #CIEM innovator, Trustdome, to strengthen Zscaler Cloud Protection capabilities.
