Snyk announced Wednesday it has reached an agreement to acquire Enso Security, a startup that specializes in providing enhanced visibility into application security posture.
The terms of the deal, which is expected to close during the second quarter, were not disclosed by Snyk. Enso Security has 30 employees, Snyk said in an email to CRN.
Founded in 2020, Enso Security had raised a $6 million seed funding round that same year.
In a news release about the acquisition, Snyk said that the addition of Enso Security will help enable the vendor to offer the “first and only developer security platform providing a holistic view of application security posture.”
Tel Aviv-based Enso Security has been among the “pioneers” in the category of Application Security Posture Management (ASPM), Snyk said in the release.
“Developer-first ASPM will orchestrate coverage throughout the entire software development lifecycle, with prioritization that powerfully combines both business impact and risk,” the company said.
In 2022, Enso Security described its ASPM offering as a “systematic process to holistically manage and execute AppSec,” which promises to offer “comprehensive application visibility, inventory and discovery of the organization’s entire environment.”
In contrast to AppSec tools that just focus on management of defects, Enso Security has said it provides the industry’s first platform that is “suitable for building true AppSec maturity,” through “holistically operating and comprehensively measuring AppSec programs from beginning to end.”
