JFrog Ltd, the liquid software company, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Vdoo Connected Trust Ltd for approximately $300 million.
As part of the JFrog Platform, Vdoo will accelerate JFrog’s vision of becoming the company behind all software updates and creating a world of Liquid Software by expanding its end-to-end DevOps Platform offering, providing holistic security from the development environment all the way to edges, IoT and devices.
Vdoo’s security experts and vulnerability researchers will join the JFrog team to continue to develop advanced security solutions for developers and security engineers.
With years of extensive experience in software architecture and vulnerability research, reverse engineering, and binary code analysis, Vdoo’s team and JFrog will seek to deliver a complete DevSecOps solution to secure the full software packages lifecycle.
JFrog’s Security Road Map
As part of the integration process, JFrog will triple the size of its security experts team – including engineering, marketing, and sales – with employees that will be located in Israel, Germany, Japan and North America.
In 2021, JFrog will expand JFrog Xray vulnerability detection to include Vdoo’s extensive data and improved scanning across multiple dimensions, including configuration and applicability scanning. In addition, JFrog expects to fully integrate Vdoo’s technology into its DevOps platform to provide an all-in-one, continuous, holistic secured platform in 2022.
In the immediate term, Vdoo’s SaaS product will remain in operation, with new development of features and functions focusing on the JFrog Platform solution. Following the completion of the acquisition, JFrog and Vdoo will work with customers to ensure business continuity and streamlined migration to the joint offering.
