  • VMware Agrees to Buy Carbon Black Pivotal SoftwareMore

We look forward to continuing our work with VMware to deliver even more value to customers building modern applications.

Strategically speaking, the Pivotal acquisition clearly opens up a key cloud developer opportunity for VMware which is a good fit and cross-sell area, while execution issues should be able to be smoothed out over the next few quarters this ultimately ends Pivotal's dark chapter as a public company.

Ademi & O'Reilly, LLP Investigates whether Pivotal Software, Inc. has obtained a Fair Price in its sale to VMware, Inc.

Analysts at Morgan Stanley cut their price target for Dell to $56 from $70 a share to reflect the decrease in value of its Pivotal and VMware subsidiaries, the analysts said in a research note.

VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger noted that the addition of Carbon Black into its family marks a huge step forward in security and an enterprise-grade platform to direct and protect applications, networks and workloads.

VMware Inc mentioned on Thursday it purchased two software program firms in separate offers valued at about $5 billion, trying to develop the vary of services it presents to its company purchasers.

VMware plans to integrate Carbon Black technologies across VMware offerings including NSX, Workspace One, AppDefense and Secure State.

"The current cybersecurity industry is simply broken and ineffective", Gelsinger asserted in an investor call touting the acquisition.

License revenue for the second quarter was $1.01 billion, an increase of 12% from the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

"Together with Heptio and Pivotal, VMware will offer a comprehensive Kubernetes based portfolio to build, run and manage modern applications on any cloud", Gelsinger said, according to a transcript of the earnings call by Seeking Alpha.

In the months before the latest announcements, private equity firm Insight Partners announced its own deal for Recorded Future, and Palo Alto Networks and FireEye boosted their own offerings (see: Sale of Recorded Future a Highlight of Big InfoSec M&A Week).

For Carbon Black, this could prove to be a very useful move.

And in July, Google Cloud and VMware announced Google Cloud VMware Solution by CloudSimple, a new service that will allow organizations to run their VMware workloads in Google Cloud Platform, providing customers with choice and flexibility to run VMware workloads on-premises, in a hybrid architecture, or in the cloud. The company generated free cash flow of United States dollars 611 million in the quarter and ended the period with just under USD 3 billion in cash. VMware's total revenue plus sequential change in total unearned revenue grew 17% year-over-year.

Pivotal has fully embraced Kubernetes, recently launching Pivotal Spring Runtime for Kubernetes and the upcoming Pivotal Application Service for Kubernetes.

Both the new acquisitions are expected to close in the second half of VMware's fiscal year 2020, ending January 31, 2020, subject to customary conditions.

While Carbon Black faces some strong competition, "the opportunity is a market in disruption", Gelsinger said.
