Zscaler, Inc., the leader in cloud security, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Trustdome, a leading innovator in Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM), where Trustdome’s development team and CIEM technology will be combined with Zscaler’s existing Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) platform, as part of Zscaler Cloud Protection (ZCP), providing a comprehensive solution for reducing public cloud attack surfaces and improving security posture.
With this acquisition, Zscaler also expands its global footprint with its first development center in Israel, where the company plans to continue investment.
Enterprise cloud environments can have hundreds of millions of discrete permissions granted to both humans and cloud services, including unused permissions, non-federated dormant accounts, and misconfigured permissions. Left unchecked, these permissions become an easy path for attackers to infiltrate cloud deployments. Trustdome’s CIEM platform helps solve this problem by providing full governance over who and what has access to data, applications and services in public cloud environments.
The transaction is expected to close prior to the completion of Zscaler’s fiscal third quarter subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
