Rapid7 Acquires IntSights for $335 Million
Rapid7, a Boston, Massachusetts-based provider of data security and analytics solutions that help security teams reduce vulnerabilities, monitor for malicious behavior, halt attacks, and automate routine tasks, has announced its acquisition of IntSights, a New York-headquartered and Israel-born cyber threat intelligence company for $335 million.
IntSights monitors the dark web to identify threats such as data leakage and malicious activity that are targeting an organization’s digital footprint. Rapid7 provides PCI DSS compliance security solutions for mid-market financial services customers.
The acquisition will strengthen Rapid7’s extended detection and response offering by enabling high-fidelity alters that ensure earlier threat detection and accelerated response times, according to the deal announcement. IntSights’ external threat-intelligence capabilities will provide Rapid7 “customers with a unified view into threats, attack-surface monitoring, greater signal-to-noise ratio, relevant insights, and proactive threat mitigation,” wrote Rapid7 chairman and CEO Corey Thomas in a blog post.
Following an acquisition of Alcide in February, this marks Rapid7’s second acquisition this year.
