Cyber threat analysis firm Miburo acquired by Microsoft

The cyber threat analysis firm Miburo, that is led by Clint Watts, the founder of the firm, will become part of Microsoft’s Customer Security and Trust organisation

To boost threat intelligence research into new foreign cyber threats, Microsoft has acquired cyber threat analysis and research company Miburo.

The size of the acquisition deal was not disclosed by Microsoft.

New York-based Miburo specialises in the detection of and response to foreign information operations.

“With the acquisition Miburo, we will continue our mission to take action, and to partner with others in the public and private sectors to find long-term solutions that will stop foreign adversaries from threatening public and private sector customers,” Tom Burt, Corporate Vice President, Customer Security and Trust at Microsoft, said late on Tuesday.

As part of its commitment to keep customers safe online, Microsoft detects and helps customers defend against cyber threats from nation-states.

The cyber threat analysis firm Miburo, that is led by Clint Watts, the founder of the firm, will become part of Microsoft’s Customer Security and Trust organisation.

The analysts from Miburo, working in close collaboration with the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Centre, data scientists and others, will “enable Microsoft to 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.”

Across 16 languages, Miburo’s research teams detect and attribute malign and extremist influence campaigns.
