Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE:HPE) acquired Scytale, a San Francisco, CA-based cloud-native security and zero trust networking company.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
Founded in 2017 by a group of engineers from cloud-native enterprises, Scytale provides enterprise security engineering teams with cloud-native solutions to standardize and accelerate service authentication across cloud, container, and on-premises infrastructures. The company’s team of experts in cloud-native security and zero-trust networking is also recognized as the founding contributors of the SPIFFE (the Secure Production Identity Framework for Everyone) and SPIRE (the SPIFFE Runtime Environment) open source projects to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
HPE is committed to continuing Scytale’s stewardship and contributions to SPIFFE and SPIRE, and these projects will play a fundamental role in HPE’s plans to deliver a dynamic, open, and secure edge-to-cloud platform. The acquisition will also provide HPE’s customers and partners with the freedom to design, deploy, and achieve their IT operational goals, regardless of supplier or location. The company’s team from Scytale, and co-founders Sunil James, Emiliano Berenbaum, and Andrew Jessup, will join HPE.
