VMware 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.

Adding E8 Security’s capabilities to VMware’s digital workspace platform, VMware Workspace ONE, will enable customers to get a single platform approach that simplifies management and security by correlating data to accurately detect and respond to advanced threats using analytics.

The E8 Security team has developed intelligent technology that combines big data, security analytics, behavior modelling, and multi-dimensional analysis to actively detect threats. E8 Security improves security across the digital workspace with user and device behavior analytics that accelerate detection of advanced threats based on anomalies. By correlating data for better management and security context, and automating learning behaviors, E8 Security can simplify threat detection and response.

Mergers & acquisitions (M&A) can be disruptive and—if not done properly—might not yield desired synergies for the companies involved, especially when it comes to IT integration. In last two years alone, VMware IT has successfully executed more than ten deals, and that has allowed us to turn IT M&A execution into “a well-oiled-machine”.
