Google Finalizes $5.4B Mandiant Acquisition to Bolster Security Portfolio

 |  September 12, 2022

Google has completed its acquisition of cyber defense, threat intelligence and incident response services company Mandiant, saying this will bolster Google Cloud’s existing security portfolio and help enterprises with every component of the “security lifecycle.”

The deal combines Google Cloud’s existing offering with Mandiant’s cyber threat intelligence and lets Google Cloud customers manage threats, incidents and exposure, according to a Monday (Sept. 12) blog post.

“With the scale of Google’s data processing, novel analytics approaches with [artificial intelligence (AI)] and machine learning, and a focus on eliminating entire classes of threats, Google Cloud and Mandiant will help organizations reinvent security to meet the requirements of our rapidly changing world,” Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian wrote in the post.
