3. Palo Alto Networks Acquires Evident.io
Purchase Price: $300 Million
Palo Alto Networks purchased Evident.io in March to make it easier for enterprise cloud users to keep their deployment compliant and secure.
The Santa Clara, California-based platform security vendor said buying Pleasanton, California-based Evident.io will extend its API-based security capabilities by analyzing services and account setting configurations against strict security and compliance controls. Evident.io's co-founders joined Palo Alto Networks.
Once Evident.io is integrated with Palo Alto Networks' existing cloud security offering, the company said customers will be able to use a single approach for continuous monitoring, storage security, and compliance validation and reporting.
As a result, security, DevOps and compliance will be able to: develop cloud applications faster; simplify developer and security operations; and continuously validate deployments for compliance.
