Enterprises must be able to identify and respond to hostile actors rapidly, using actionable threat intelligence, in order to keep their companies safe from new threats.
“Mandiant is driven by a mission to make every organization secure from cyber threats and confident in their readiness,” said Kevin Mandia, CEO, Mandiant. “Combining our 18 years of threat intelligence and incident response experience with Google Cloud’s security expertise presents an incredible opportunity to deliver with the speed and scale that the security industry needs.”
Both the organization’s have a long history of providing industry-leading security. Google has worked to create some of the world’s finest secured computer systems during the last two decades. Mandiant is a renowned first responder to the world’s major cybersecurity incidents, with a reputation for providing exceptional frontline experience and industry-leading threat intelligence.
With this acquisition, the companies will be able to provide a dedicated end-to-end security operations suite with even more features to serve clients across their cloud and on-premise environments.
