Reston cyber intelligence business acquired by Baltimore cybersecurity firm
ZeroFOX buys Cyveillance, a LookingGlass Cyber Solutions Inc. business unit
Cyber intelligence company Cyveillance, a Reston-based business unit of LookingGlass Cyber Solutions Inc., has been acquired by Baltimore-based cybersecurity firm ZeroFOX, the companies announced Tuesday.
Terms of the acquisition were not released.
Under the acquisition, ZeroFOX will absorb Cyveillance’s more than 130 employees and more than 100 customers.
“Our merger with the Cyveillance team fulfills our strategic vision of accelerating our position as the definitive worldwide leader in digital risk protection,” ZeroFOX CEO James C. Foster said in a statement. “The addition of Cyveillance allows us to further scale our digital risk protection services and expand our threat intelligence capabilities, complementing our renowned AI and remediation capabilities, to address the entire digital threat lifecycle.”
Cyveillance was founded in 1997 and acquired by LookingGlass in 2015. The company provides monitoring and analysis of online data sources to protect client information, infrastructure and employees from physical and online threats.
ZeroFOX, which provides protection against cyber threats on social media and other web platforms, currently has offices in Baltimore, Chile, the United Kingdom and India — so the acquisition will add the company’s second mid-Atlantic office.
“With decades of threat intelligence tradecraft experience and a state of the art 24-7 cybersecurity center, Cyveillance brings a best-in-class data collection and vetting advantage over all other TI [threat intelligence] providers,” Cyveillance General Manager James Carnall said in a statement. “This enriched intelligence delivered within the ZeroFOX Platform will enable customers to achieve a new level of protection that is years ahead of the competition.”
Founded in 2013, ZeroFOX has raised more than $150 million in funding through Intel Capital, NEA, Highland Capital Partners, Redline Capital Management, Hercules Capital, Comcast Ventures and Core Capital.
