Outpost24 acquires Blueliv

Outpost24, an innovator in full stack cybersecurity assessment, has acquired Blueliv, a leading cyber threat intelligence company in Barcelona, Spain.

This combination will create one of the largest cybersecurity providers in Europe and provide the most advanced threat landscape monitoring solution to help businesses identify threats targeting their organizations and dramatically reduce risk exposure.

According to Gartner, “threat intelligence is evidence-based knowledge about existing or emerging menaces or hazards to assets. CISOs should plan for current threats, as well as those that could emerge in the long term.” With cybercriminals continually evolving their methods to exploit valuable and sensitive information from businesses, cyber threat intelligence has become an important pillar within an organization’s defense to help security teams protect against sophisticated attacks.

“It has been a difficult 18 months as many organizations struggled to mitigate the growing number of vulnerabilities and attacks coming from all directions, along with a lack of context about risk in relation to the external threat environment,” said Karl Thedéen, CEO of Outpost24. “Because of this, automated and continuous threat intelligence has become critical. The combined solution will empower our customers to accelerate risk reduction by giving them the threat context to prioritize remediation efforts and increase security efficiency like never before”.

Widely regarded as one of Europe’s leading cyber threat intelligence providers, Blueliv has built a trusted name within the security industry. Its pay-as-you-need modular architecture provides customers with streamlined, cost-effective intelligence delivered in real-time. Blueliv’s flagship product, the Threat Compass, is built from a customizable group of targeted intelligence modules which radically reduces attack success rates and improves incident response performance. The intelligence gathered from open, deep and dark web also helps power the Blueliv Threat Exchange Network, which is designed to encourage members to share news and indicators of compromise, and offer a live cyber threat map for tracking crimeservers and malicious IPs.

“As we both continue on our mission to help businesses and security teams become more efficient and secure, there are many similarities between Outpost24 and Blueliv which will make this acquisition ideal to provide our joint customers with a unique security offering,” said Daniel Solis, CEO & Founder of Blueliv. “By sharing our knowledge and combining our best-in-class threat intelligence with Outpost24’s full stack security assessment platform, we look forward to setting a new standard for threat landscape monitoring together.”
