Qualys Snaps Up Container Firm

Plans to use Layered Insight's technology to add runtime capabilities and automated enforcement to its container security tool.

Security firm Qualys has agreed to acquire Layered Insight in a move intended to build on the capabilities of its current container security tool, the companies confirmed today.

Layered Insight, founded in 2015 and based in Pleasanton, Calif., aims to bring together DevOps and SecOps by providing visibility across containerized applications. Qualys plans to use its technology to add more visibility and runtime app protection to its Container Security platform.

More specifically, Layered Insight can map runtime behavior to provide a deeper understanding of containerized applications. Its system can also detect and prevent breaches during runtime and gives admins the option to set alerts for anomalies and automate enforcement. Qualys anticipates Layered Insight will be integrated into its cloud platform by the second half of 2019.

Co-founders Asif Awan and John Kinsella will be joining Qualys as CTO of container security and vice president of engineering, container security, respectively.

This is the latest purchase in Qualys' startup shopping spree. It most recently announced its intent to buy Second Front Systems in June 2018; in April, it acquired the software assets of 1Mobility. In Nov. 2017 it purchased NetWatcher assets for cloud-based threat intelligence, a few months after it bought assets of Nevis Networks to improve on network traffic analysis.
