Vista Acquires a Majority Interest in Sonatype: A Great Day for our Customers, Partners and Community

The Sonatype journey started more than a decade ago, just as the concept of “open source” and componentized software development was gaining steam. From our humble beginning as core contributors to Apache Maven, to supporting Maven Central and serving billions of components annually to developers, to building the world’s deepest knowledge base of open source health and hygiene data, to helping thousands of enterprise engineering teams automatically find and fix open source vulnerabilities, we’ve pioneered the best practice of software supply chain management and reinvented how organizations use open source to build applications.

Today, we’re excited to announce that Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”) is acquiring a majority interest in Sonatype — which means that our journey will continue alongside a powerful new strategic partner.
