Perforce Software Acquires Puppet

Minneapolis-based enterprise dev tool company Perforce Software has announced the acquisition of Puppet, an infrastructure automation software platform headquartered in Portland, Oregon. Financial details of the acquisition were not made public.

“This acquisition expands our product offering by adding new capabilities for enterprise DevOps teams to manage and secure their critical infrastructure,” Perforce CEO Mark Ties said in a release. “With Puppet, we will be providing our customers with access to a product portfolio that enables them to drive innovation on a global scale. We look forward to welcoming the Puppet team and continuing to offer the level of customer support, services, and community Puppet has established in the market.”

Perforce’s acquisition of Puppet marks another DevOps addition to its portfolio. The company acquired testing outfits 21labs and BlazeMeter in 2021 and TestCraft (now Perfecto) in 2020.

Perforce is privately held and funded by Clearlake Capital.
