Datadog has announced its plans to acquire security software provider Hdiv Security for an undisclosed sum.

Hdiv Security is best known for its RASP security technology that provides applications, microservices, and APIs protection by flagging both known and unknown (zero-day) vulnerabilities at runtime. The early vulnerability assessment allows for quick remediation, lowering the risk of a security breach.

Hdiv Security’s unified application security solutions will add to Datadog's Cloud Security platform. The fusion will lead to an integrated approach to application security, according to Datadog.

Hdiv Security’s threat detection capabilities also complement Datadog’s latest Application Security Monitoring (ASM) platform that alerts organizations to atypical application behavior through distributed tracing.

"Combining security and observability provides Datadog customers unique insights into sensitive services that are vulnerable or under attack," said Pierre Betouin, VP of product and cloud security platform at Datadog.

"Adding Hdiv Security's capabilities to Datadog's Cloud Security Platform will deepen security visibility across the entire software life cycle to help our customers develop more secure and resilient applications," added Betouin.

The Datadog-Hdiv Security acquisition deal is slated to close by the third quarter of the current fiscal year, pending regulatory approvals.

"Our focus at Hdiv Security has always been on detecting security vulnerabilities and protecting software, regardless of where it is deployed. Datadog is the perfect partner to advance this mission to continuously and accurately detect vulnerabilities in applications," commented  Roberto Velasco, founder and CEO of Hdiv Security.
