FireMon Acquires DisruptOps To Extend Leadership in Security Policy Management and Automation

FireMon, the industry leader in network security policy management (NSPM), today announced it has acquired DisruptOps, a pioneer in cloud security operations. Adding the DisruptOps platform immediately extends FireMon’s solutions to include monitoring and responding to security risks across customers’ public cloud infrastructure.

Concurrent with the acquisition, Jody Brazil, the original founder and product visionary behind FireMon, will return to the helm as CEO of the combined entity. After leaving FireMon, Brazil founded and built DisruptOps to enable security and development teams to find, understand, and fix critical cloud security issues – simplifying how organizations can implement and achieve DevSecOps.

We sat down with Jody Brazil, CEO, FireMon to discuss what this acquisition means for the company and how it will benefit customers moving forward.

Why DisruptOps?

When I co-founded FireMon, we set out to improve security outcomes by improving security operations, and although technologies have changed, this mission remains critically important. Likewise, DisruptOps was founded with a similar purpose — to improve operations for security and DevOps teams so they can find, understand, and fix cloud security issues.
