Author: Matt Jones, CEO, E8 Security
I’m pleased to announce that VMware, a leading innovator in enterprise software, has acquired the technology and team of E8 Security. With this acquisition, VMware is further reinforcing its commitment to deliver the industry’s first intelligence-driven digital workspace to empower the employee experience and drive predictive security.
It’s been E8 Security’s mission from the beginning to transform security operations and improve the investigation process by automatically discovering user and device behaviors indicative of advanced threats. Now, as part of the VMware team, we will be able to achieve our mission on a much larger scale.
E8 Security uses machine learning to surface anomalies and suspicious behaviors, discover malicious activity, and correlate data from different sources, reducing alert fatigue and accelerating the detection of advanced cyber threats. VMware helps customers improve the health and security posture of their digital workspace through the VMware Workspace ONE platform. By combining our technology with the insights, app analytics, and powerful automation capabilities of Workspace ONE, VMware customers will be able to benefit from a simplified way to leverage data from multiple security solutions and provide behavior-based threat detection and risk analysis.
Combining our behavioral analytics technology with the Workspace ONE platform will allow customers to streamline management, remediation and automation, simplifying threat detection and response, and making security operations more predictive.
