Microsoft Confirms RiskIQ Acquisition to “Strengthen Cybersecurity”

Microsoft is acquiring RiskIQ to uplift their users confidence in Microsoft’s security structure.

Microsoft - RiskIQ

Microsoft is on the verge to acquire RiskIQ – a global threat intelligence and attack surface management company. That would help the company offer a better service to their users in security terms. With this new service acquisition, Microsoft users would get “a more comprehensive view of the global threats to their businesses, better understand vulnerable internet-facing assets, and build world-class threat intelligence.”

According to Microsoft, with this acquisition, RiskIQ would help the company’s customers to discover and assess the security of their enterprise attack surface.

In a blog post, Microsoft quoted a comment from RiskIQ, saying:

“The vision and mission of RiskIQ is to provide unmatched internet visibility and insights to better protect and inform our customers and partners’ security programs. We’re thrilled to add RiskIQ’s Attack Surface and Threat Intelligence solutions to the Microsoft Security portfolio, extending and accelerating our impact. Our combined capabilities will enable best-in-class protection, investigations, and response against today’s threats.”

This security company would also offer global threat intelligence from “across the internet, crowd-sourced through its PassiveTotal community of security researchers and analyzed using machine learning.”
