Microsoft acquires cybersecurity company RiskIQ

Cloud security company RiskIQ has been bought by Microsoft for $500 million, according to Bloomberg. In a blog post, Microsoft cloud security vice president Eric Doerr said they were acquiring the company to help customers “build a more comprehensive view of the global threats to their businesses, better understand vulnerable internet-facing assets, and build world-class threat intelligence.” In the last year, Microsoft has purchased IoT security firms CyberX and ReFirm Labs to boost its cybersecurity offerings.
