Snyk recently announced it has acquired Fugue, cloud security and compliance company to help teams to protect their cloud environments.

Headquartered in Frederick, Maryland, Fugue was founded with a fundamental commitment to the power of open source for increasingly scalable and secure software development.

While numerous Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools today can detect vulnerabilities in deployment, Fugue’s Unified Policy Engine is unique in its ability to connect cloud posture back to configuration code, using one set of policies in order to manage compliance and security throughout the entirety of the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

According to the company, Snyk customers will be the first to benefit from an unmatched feedback loop, allowing developers to secure their code before deployment, maintain its secure integrity while running, and better understand the precise places to provide fixes back in the code.

The company said it is planning a new Snyk solution to unite and then extend Snyk’s Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and Fugue’s cloud security capabilities, designed specifically for DevSecOps. It is expected to include features like comprehensive visualisation of cloud landscape and fully integrated insights.

The acquisition of Fugue is Snyk’s fifth in the last 18 months, following the successful integrations of CloudSkiff, FossID, Manifold and DeepCode. This latest corporate development follows the company’s late 2021 announcement of over $600 million in Series F investment.
