Google to acquire cybersecurity firm Mandiant for $5.4 billion

News and information from the Advent IM team.

Google is to purchase cybersecurity firm Mandiant for $5.4 billion, hoping to boost its cloud security solutions as companies are facing a flood of cyberattacks on their systems.
The Mandiant deal is Google’s second-largest transaction ever, behind its $12.5 billion purchase of Motorola a decade ago.

Google says the acquisition will enable its cloud unit to enhance its offerings and provide clients with a complete security operations suite, which can be used in both cloud and on-premise settings.
