The acquisition of Mesh7 will enable VMware to deliver modern application connectivity services that enable a developer experience that leads to more secure operations.

Mesh7 is founded by Amit Jain and Pratik Roychowdhury. “Mesh7 and VMware will work together to continue driving stronger and better security from development through run-time, and simplifying DevSecOps,” Amit Jain said.

Mesh7’s API Security Mesh solution empowers information security leaders, cloud application security practitioners, and application owners with the security and observability capabilities they need to protect their modern, cloud-native applications and microservices against cyber threats and breaches.

The Mesh7 solution empowers development, security, and operations leaders to address observability, security, and compliance for cloud-native, API-based, and other distributed applications, said Tom Gillis, SVP and GM for the networking and security business unit.
