Original title: VMware Agrees to Buy Carbon Black, Pivotal for $4.8 Billion
Netease Technology News, August 23 news, according to foreign media reports, VMware agreed on Thursday to spend nearly $ 5 billion to acquire two software companies in order to expand its influence in the field of development tools and network security.
VMware said it will acquire Pivotal Software Inc., which sells cloud software and services, for $2.7 billion and Carbon Security Inc., a network security company, for $2.1 billion.
The company said that after the merger, the company will provide software to build, run, manage, connect and secure any application on the cloud or any device. The acquisition of the two companies will accelerate VMware's plans to deliver secure and cloudy application development.
VMware CEO Pat & Middot; Pat Gelsinger pointed out that the two acquisitions "will significantly enhance our ability to drive customers' digital transformation".
“These acquisitions address two key technical issues for all of today's businesses —— building modern enterprise applications and protecting enterprise workloads and customers. & rdquo; He said.
VMware said that once Carbon Black's transaction is completed, it will provide a highly differentiated, inherently secure cloud through big data, behavioral analysis and artificial intelligence.
Both transactions are expected to be completed in the second half of VMware's current fiscal year, which will end on January 31 next year. (Lebang)<#comment>#comment><#comment>#comment><#comment>#comment>
