LookingGlass Cyber Solutions has acquired AlphaWave, an Austin, Texas-based cloud security technology startup, for an undisclosed sum in a move to expand its portfolio of attack surface management platforms.
“AlphaWave’s cloud-native foundation enables them to clearly understand the nuances of managing one’s attack surface across the cloud and containers. This expertise is only going to become more critical as the private sector and government continue to undergo digital transformations and move to cloud-first strategies,” LookingGlass CEO Gilman Louie said in a statement published Tuesday.
“We are excited to bring AlphaWave’s expertise and attack surface capabilities into the LookingGlass Suite as we deliver actionable threat intelligence enhanced with an adversary’s view and customized models of an adversary’s capabilities,” Louie added.
The LookingGlass Suite works to provide organizations with a threat modeling environment for prioritizing and operationalizing threat intelligence by synthesizing large amounts of internet data with cyberthreat actor capabilities.
LookingGlass said the transaction will enable the company to provide AlphaWave clients access to its threat intelligence repositories and capabilities as they address cyberthreats.
