LookingGlass is acquired by ZeroFox



LookingGlass, a threat intelligence and attack surface management company, has announced plans to buy ZeroFox for around $26 million.

ZeroFox protects against phishing and other threats that could harm an organization’s brand, as well as threat intelligence and incident response services. ZeroFox also offers “disruption” services such as domain and social media takedowns, as well as the removal of personal information from data brokers.

LookingGlass’ Internet-facing attack surface intelligence data lake is used by organizations to identify and assess threats, as well as to establish the relevant remediation and defense tasks.

LookingGlass technology will be integrated into ZeroFox’s platform following the acquisition for increased visibility into external attack surface assets and vulnerabilities, ZeroFox said in a statement announcing the acquisition on Monday.

In October 2020, ZeroFox purchased Cyveillance, a LookingGlass business subsidiary. According to the company at the time, the merger boosted ZeroFox’s threat intelligence and automated security capabilities.

Only seven months later, ZeroFox announced plans to acquire Vigilante, a Dark Web threat intelligence company, to expand its platform’s capabilities, including breach intelligence and response, botnet exposure monitoring, data on compromised credentials, infected and vulnerable hosts, and indicators of compromise.

The transaction, which consists mostly of stock (9.4 million shares) mixed with convertible debt and cash, is scheduled to settle within 30 days.
