Tech giant Microsoft is set to acquire cyber threat analysis and research company Miburo for an undisclosed fee.
New York-based Miburo specialises in foreign information operations and helps to provide analysis, consulting and train services. The company’s research team detects and attributes influence campaigns over a range of different languages.
In addition, the firm helps its clients create strategies for mitigating risks and provides in-person and online training to law enforcement, intelligence, military and cybersecurity professionals.
Miburo will become part of Microsoft’s customer security and trust unit following the completion of the acquisition.
Microsoft corporate VP of customer security and trust Tom Burt said, “Working in close collaboration with the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center, our Threat Context Analysis team, our data scientists and others, the new analysts from Miburo 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.”
