Cybersecurity firm Trend Micro announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Montréal, Canada-based web application security firm Immunio for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition, Trend Micro says, will help increase the automated protection that it can provide customers throughout the DevOps lifecycle. 

“We are excited to acquire Immunio’s application protection technology, their team of application security experts and their customers,” said Bill McGee, SVP and GM of Hybrid Cloud Security at Trend Micro. “Technology changes, like cloud computing and container platforms, are enabling faster application development. Immunio’s run-time application security allows our customers to increase protection against software vulnerabilities within the applications they are building.”

Announced at the AWS re:Invent conference this week, Trend Micro also said that it is enhancing its container-specific security capabilities, by supporting container image scanning, which allows security issues to be identified and resolved prior to production release. 

According to Trend, the new capabilities integrated with the DevOps lifecycle, with Immunio bringing early detection and protection against application vulnerabilities, and container image scanning allowing for the publishing and protection of secure container images. 

In March 2016, Trend Micro acquired the TippingPoint network security portfolio from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) for $300 million.
