Runecast was founded in 2014 by a team of virtualization professionals with a vision: help IT System Admins get and maintain control of their environments. Today, organizations around the world benefit from our patented solution, Runecast Analyzer, and its predictive and actionable intelligence for increasingly complex hybrid cloud IT environments.

The Runecast team’s dedication to providing unrivaled customer experience has earned us a five-star Capterra rating from customer reviews. In 2020, Runecast was named a Gartner Cool Vendor and won Computing’s SME awards for Best Place to Work in Digital and Cloud Security Product of the Year.

On Januaty 29, 2024 Runecast has announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Dynatrace (NYSE: DT), the leader in unified observability and security.

In the dynamic landscape of digital transformation, cloud technologies have revolutionized the way businesses operate. While cloud adoption has accelerated innovation, it has also introduced complexities in managing security and compliance. Organizations are now seeking a unified approach that encompasses observability, security, and compliance to address these challenges effectively. Through this acquisition, the unique capabilities that Runecast offers its customers will bolster the Dynatrace® platform’s capabilities, empowering customers to manage risks proactively, including misconfigurations and compliance violations, and automating remediation across their hybrid and multicloud environments.

After the closing, Dynatrace plans to integrate Runecast into its unified observability and security platform.

The proposed transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed later in Dynatrace’s fourth quarter, concluding on March 31, 2024.
