FireEye (NASDAQ: FEYE) on Tuesday announced that it has acquired Cloudvisory, a Dallas, Texas-based provider of tools for cloud visibility, security, and policy management. 

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Founded in 2013, Cloudvisory’s platform provides continuous visibility, compliance, and security policy governance solutions for cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud environments. Features include centralized security management for audit, compliance, micro-segmentation and enforcement through cloud-native controls of various cloud platforms, including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, OpenStack and VMware, along with traditional virtualized and bare metal environments.

“Customers need consistent visibility across their public and hybrid cloud environments, as well as containerized workloads,” Grady Summers, Executive Vice President of Products and Customer Success at FireEye, said in a statement. “Cloudvisory delivers this visibility and allows FireEye to apply controls and best practices based on our frontline knowledge of how attackers operate.”

By integrating the Cloudvisory Security Platform with Helix, FireEye says that the expanded offering will help customers assess configurations against compliance standards and best practices, deliver ongoing monitoring of environments, and report on non-compliant actions that could increase risk.

“The addition of Cloudvisory fits the previous FireEye Security Suite like a missing puzzle piece, complementing its detection capabilities with additional visibility, reporting, and active policy enforcement tools for the cloud-enabled enterprise,” Martin Holste, Senior Manager, Cloud Security and CTO at FireEye, noted in an associated blog post.

In May 2019, FireEye acquired Verodin, a provider of tools that help test the effectiveness of cyber security controls, in a deal valued at roughly $250 million in cash and stock.
