VMware has acquired security startup Intrinsic, a San Francisco serverless computing start-up, CNBC reported late Tuesday

Intrinsic secures sensitive data from bugs and untrusted code, allowing users to run all code (even malicious code!) safely. Intrinsic is an application runtime security technology for Node.js.

In May at the RSA Conference, VMware detailed the company’s strategy to help organizations turn the advantage from attackers to defenders with a new security approach that focuses on applications more than infrastructure, and shrinks the attack surface rather than chasing threats. With a broadening portfolio of software-based solutions that span the cloud to the end user, VMware makes security intrinsic to the infrastructure so customers can lock down the known good behavior of applications and significantly reduce the risk to critical applications, sensitive data, and users. 

VMware also acquired Bitnami in May, a package application company, as part of the expansion of its cloud-based services.
