VMware launched a beta version of Secure State in August 2018, and today it supports “thousands of production cloud accounts” across Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, he said. The vendor plans to add Google support “in the near term,” followed by Kubernetes environments, and VMware Cloud on AWS. “Ultimately we want to make sure that we give organizations a solution that works across all of their cloud environments,” he added.

VMware moved further into the security space today with a muli-cloud security product called Secure State. It’s based on technology that VMware acquired when it bought public cloud security startup CloudCoreo last year.

Secure State is available from CloudHealth by VMware. Six months after the CloudCoreo acquisition, VMware acquired multi-cloud management startup CloudHealth, which has become the cornerstone of VMware’s multi-cloud strategy and has 5,000 customers.
