Microsoft Acquires Aorato for Enterprise Cloud Security

Microsoft has acquired Aorato, a developer of enterprise security solutions.  Financial terms were not disclosed.

Aorato, which is based in Israel, uses machine learning to detect suspicious activity on a company’s network. Key to Aorato’s approach is the Organizational Security Graph, a living, continuously-updated view of all of the people and machines accessing an organization’s Windows Server Active Directory (AD).

Microsoft said the acquisition will give customers a new level of protection against threats through better visibility into their identity infrastructure.
