Zscaler has entered into an agreement to acquire the cloud security posture management firm Cloudneeti.
The deal is expected to close prior to the completion of Zscaler’s third quarter. Financial details of the merger were not released.
Cloudneeti’s focus is preventing and remediating application misconfigurations in SaaS, IaaS and PaaS to help keep databases secure and in compliance. Zscaler intends to roll these capabilities in to its Cloud Security Platform.
“Cloudneeti augments Zscaler’s data protection capabilities and will dramatically improve organizations’ cloud security by discovering and eliminating some of the most common causes of data breaches and compliance violations,” said Jay Chaudhry, chairman and CEO of Zscaler.
