Mandiant Snaps Up Attack Surface Management Startup Intrigue

FireEye’s Mandiant unit announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Intrigue, a provider of attack surface management technology for enterprises.

FireEye’s Mandiant unit announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Intrigue, a provider of attack surface management technology for enterprises.

According to FireEye, Intrigue’s technology will be integrated into the Mandiant Advantage platform, and help customers discover, monitor, and manage risk across their attack surface.

“By coupling intelligence on the vulnerabilities that are being exploited by adversaries with visibility across the entire attack surface, Mandiant Advantage with Intrigue’s capabilities advances the ability of today’s overworked security teams to understand what assets they have, and where to prioritize activities as they seek to focus on the exposures that matter most right now,” Mandiant explained.

Intrigue was founded in 2019 by Jonathan Cran, who previously worked at Rapid7, Bugcrowd, and Kenna Security.

“The vision of Intrigue is to provide continuous, in-depth visibility of organizations’ attack surface and risk,” said Cran, Intrigue Founder and CEO prior to the acquisition. “We’re beyond excited to bring our capabilities to the Mandiant Advantage platform, accelerating and greatly expanding our mission-driven team’s impact. I believe our combined capabilities will enable security teams to gain a significant edge against today’s threats.”

In June, FireEye (NASDAQ: FEYE) announced plans to sell its products business, including the FireEye name, as part of a $1.2 billion transaction that splits off the Mandiant Solutions unit from the company’s endpoint protection and cloud security products. As part of the deal, FireEye’s cloud security, network and email product side of the house will be sold off in an all-cash transaction to Symphony Technology Group, the private equity firm that also owns RSA Security and McAfee Enterprise.
