In October 2020, VMware acquired SaltStack. SaltStack offers robust configuration compliance and vulnerability management capabilities—which will enable vRealize to help support customers’ SecOps practices.
SaltStack is an open source configuration management software and remote execution engine. It pulls developer code and configuration information from a central code repository and pushes that content remotely out to servers. Its primary differentiator is speed, as its multithreaded design enables the execution of hundreds or even thousands of simultaneous tasks.
