Perforce Completes Acquisition of Puppet

MINNEAPOLIS, May 18, 2022 -- Perforce Software (“Perforce”), a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of infrastructure automation leader Puppet, initially announced last month.

This acquisition expands Perforce’s product offerings with the addition of new capabilities for enterprise DevOps teams to manage and secure critical infrastructure.

Puppet pioneered what is now known as infrastructure as code and spearheaded effective practices for DevOps that flourish today. The company offers a holistic approach to infrastructure automation with products that are responsive and predictive by design. Puppet products provide teams with context on how changes will impact the infrastructure and time to decide before applications go into production. This ensures companies can deliver applications more quickly while keeping the infrastructure and businesses secure and compliant.

Both companies offer solutions that are used to support mission-critical applications and services across various industries around the globe. Perforce and Puppet both have a successful track record of superior customer support, innovation and customer success.
