Microsoft to acquire cyber threat analysis startup Miburo – GeekWire


Microsoft announced Tuesday that it will acquire Miburo, a small company that helps customers detect and respond to foreign information operations. Microsoft said the acquisition will help the tech giant “expand its threat detection and analysis capabilities to address new cyber-attacks and shed light on the ways in which foreign actors use information operations in conjunction with other cyber-attacks to achieve their objectives.” Miburo is led by founder and CEO Clint Watts, a former U.S. Army officer and FBI agent who served on the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. The deal will boost Microsoft’s growing cybersecurity business. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
