The company also helps clients create strategies for mitigating risks, and provides in-person and online training to law enforcement, intelligence, military and cybersecurity professionals.

Following the acquisition, Miburo will become part of Microsoft’s Customer Security and Trust unit.

“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 cyber-attacks and shed light on the ways in which foreign actors use information operations in conjunction with other cyber-attacks to achieve their objectives,” said Tom Burt, corporate VP of Customer Security and Trust at Microsoft.
