Rapid7 acquires IntSights for close to $400 million
The Israeli cybersecurity company is set to become Rapid7's R&D center in Israel
“We founded IntSights to make threat intelligence instantly accessible and actionable for organizations of any type or size,” said Guy Nizan, co-founder and CEO at IntSights. “We are excited to join Rapid7 to continue this mission and to bring our threat intelligence capabilities to even more customers.”
With the acquisition of IntSights, Rapid7 plans to combine its community-infused threat intelligence and understanding of customer environments with IntSights’ external threat intelligence capabilities.“Cyber security is a lopsided battle today and the odds consistently favor attackers,” said Corey Thomas, chairman and CEO, Rapid7. “Both IntSights and Rapid7 have a shared belief that organizations will succeed only when they have a unified view of internal and external threats, complete with contextualized intelligence and automated threat mitigation which will allow security teams to focus on the most critical threats."
