Miburo to be purchased by Microsoft

New York-based cybersecurity threat detection and analysis firm Miburo is set to be acquired by Microsoft, according to SecurityWeek. Aside from identifying and attributing foreign cybersecurity threats spanning over 12 languages, Miburo has been facilitating the creation of risk mitigation strategies for its clients, as well as cybersecurity training sessions for individuals in the cybersecurity, intelligence, military, and law enforcement sectors. Microsoft will be adding Miburo to its Customer Security and Trust unit upon the completion of the purchase deal. "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 cyberattacks and shed light on the ways in which foreign actors use information operations in conjunction with other cyber-attacks to achieve their objectives," said Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Customer Security and Trust Tom Burt.
