CyberArk, one of Israel Startup Nation’s biggest successes in the cybersecurity field and now a publicly traded corporation worth more than $10 billion, entered into an agreement to acquire Venafi, a firm in the field of machine identity management, from Thoma Bravo. The deal is worth $1.4 billion – $1 billion in cash and approximately $540 million in shares.

The explosion of machine identities in cloud-based environments creates a complex challenge for security. The sheer number of machine identities – workloads, containers, applications, devices – is growing much faster than the number of human users. This vast amount of identities makes it difficult to track and manage them all.

Venafi is a cybersecurity firm in the filed of category creator of machine identity management, securing machine-to-machine connections and communications. Venafi protects machine identity types by orchestrating cryptographic keys and digital certificates for SSL/TLS, SSH, code signing, mobile and IoT. Venafi provides global visibility of machine identities and the risks associated with them for the extended enterprise—on premises, mobile, virtual, cloud and IoT—at machine speed and scale.
