Cloud infrastructure software firm HashiCorp on Tuesday announced a deal to acquire BluBracket, an early stage startup building technology to help businesses scan for secrets hidden in source code.
Financial terms of the acquisition were not released.
BluBracket, based in Silicon Valley, raised $18.5 million in venture capital funding from Evolution Equity Partners, Unusual Ventures, Point72 Ventures, SignalFire and Firebolt Ventures.
In a statement announcing the acquisition, HashiCorp said BluBracket’s code scanning will complement HashiCorp Vault’s secrets management to help prevent accidental leaks and fight secrets sprawl that haunt the software supply chain.
BluBracket sells technology to help defenders easily scan, identify, and address secrets hidden in their source code, development environments, internal websites, chat services, ticketing systems, and other locations.
