Perforce Software, backed by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P., has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Perfecto Mobile.

The acquisition augments Perforce’s software portfolio with additional capabilities for enterprise DevOps teams to achieve continuous testing at scale across web, mobile and IoT applications. The acquisition is expected to close this year.

Perfecto is an industry pioneer delivering the only true enterprise-grade mobile & web automation testing software platform through its globally accessible Continuous Quality Lab. The company is the go-to provider for large organizations that need to accelerate their digital transformation and provide their customers with the best online mobile and web experiences. Leading enterprises in banking, retail, telecommunications, and insurance rely on Perfecto’s robust automated testing software to deliver quality experiences faster and retain users in highly competitive markets.

“Enterprises continue to need more automation to both scale and accelerate their application delivery,” said Mark Ties, Perforce CEO. “Perfecto adds a critical component to our DevOps capabilities allowing Perforce to deliver more value for large enterprise customers that value scalability and security.”

Perforce continues to add capabilities to its software portfolio that uniquely meet the needs of technology development teams that are challenged with multiple dimensions of scale but still must deliver products at a rapid pace. The acquisition of Perfecto will represent Perforce’s fifth acquisition in the past two years.

“With this strategic acquisition, Perforce is well positioned to capitalize on the significant market trends around demand for continuous testing from enterprise DevOps teams,” added Prashant Mehrotra, a Partner at Clearlake.

“Perfecto is the mobile and web testing software platform of choice for enterprise clients. The digital transformation is driving accelerated adoption of DevOps and its activities such as continuous integration, test automation and continuous delivery to more quickly capture and engage customers online. Our Continuous Quality Lab enables enterprises to remove bottlenecks and rapidly validate and deliver mobile and web applications that engage their customers,” said Eran Yaniv, Perfecto Co-Founder and CEO. “We are thrilled to join the Perforce team and are confident that this partnership provides us increased resources to capitalize on the continuous testing market opportunity.”
