CloudKnox was founded in 2015 and is based in Sunnyvale, California. Investors include Sorenson Ventures, Dell Technologies Capital and Foundation Capital.
Microsoft said Wednesday it’s acquiring CloudKnox, a start-up whose software helps companies reduce the amount of access they provide to their cloud resources. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
The move represents another step Microsoft is taking to expand its security business, in addition to working to keep Windows and its other products secure.
