Today, Microsoft announced that the company is acquiring New York-based cyber threat analysis and research company Miburo to boost its threat intelligence research. The company didn’t disclose the financial details of the acquisition.

Miburo will become part of Microsoft’s Customer Security and Trust organization. Microsoft will use Miburo’s cybersecurity tech to help public and private sector companies to keep them safe from foreign adversaries. It will also help Microsoft expand its threat detection and analysis capabilities.

Miburo also helps companies create strategies for mitigating risks, and provides training to cybersecurity professionals and law enforcement agencies.

“With the acquisition of Miburo, we will continue our mission to take action, and to partner with others in the public and private sectors to find long-term solutions that will stop foreign adversaries from threatening public and private sector customers,” said Tom Burt, Corporate Vice President, Customer Security, and Trust at Microsoft.

Miburo’s research teams have the capability to detect extremist influence campaigns in 16 languages. This data will help Microsoft boost its cybersecurity innovation.
