In May 2020, VMware announced its intent to acquire Octarine Networks to extend our intrinsic security strategy to containers and Kubernetes environments, building security directly into the container fabric, just as we are in endpoint, identity, network, and the cloud.


The acquisition of Octarine represents another proof point for VMware’s intrinsic security strategy and a continuation of the company’s ability to protect applications and data, regardless of where the workloads comprising these applications run - on physical servers, virtual machines or containers. This acquisition also adds to our existing container innovations including VMware NSX-T Container Security and VMware Tanzu.
