InfoArmor, a provider of fraud and identify theft protection services, has acquired cybercrime research firm IntelCrawler for an undisclosed sum.
With IntelCrawler under its belt, Scottsdale, Arizona-based InfoArmor plans to form a new Enterprise Threat Intelligence unit that will help customers discover and block attacks targeting intellectual property.
Founded in 2013 by Dan Clements and Andrew Komarov, IntelCrawler offers threat intelligence, data and security research services to large corporate and government clients.
Komarov previously worked for Russian cybercrime research firm Group-IB.
“InfoArmor is thrilled about joining forces with Dan, Andrew and the IntelCrawler team,” said John Schreiber, InfoArmor’s president, adding that IntelCrawler’s data, intelligence and research capabilities are beneficial for its clients, who are pushing for threat identification, assessment, and attribution.
“Using IntelCrawler’s context-aware intelligence and operative human intelligence, we will now be able to connect even more dots between cyber intelligence and emerging enterprise threats,” said Drew Smith, CEO of InfoArmor.
The cash and stock transaction was completed on Jan. 23, 2015.
