VMware acquired startup E8 Security in March, taking hold of a technology intended to bolster recent upgrades to its Workspace ONE endpoint management platform.
The Redwood City, Calif.-based startup uses artificial intelligence to monitor anomalies in system behavior. By analyzing data from different sources, E8 Security can discover malicious activity and tackle cyber threats in their early stages.
Integrating E8 Security's capabilities into Palo Alto, California-based VMware's Workspace ONE will enable customers to simplify management and security by correlating data to accurately detect and respond to advanced threats using analytics. E8's automated analysis of user and entity behavior can deliver threat insights to the Workspace ONE Intelligence service.
