Microsoft Acquires Aorato

MicrosoftMicrosoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) acquired Aorato, a Herzelia, Israel- and New York-based enterprise security platform, for an undisclosed amount.

The acquisition aims to give Microsoft’s customers a new level of protection against threats through better visibility into their identity infrastructure.

Aorato’s technology uses machine learning to detect suspicious activity on a company’s network. It understands what normal behavior is and then identifies anomalies, so a company can see suspicious behavior and take appropriate measures to help protect itself. Its Organizational Security Graph gives a continuously-updated view of all of the people and machines accessing an organization’s Windows Server Active Directory (AD), which is used by most enterprises to store user identities and administer access to critical business applications and systems.

Aorato’s team, led by Idan Plotnik, CEO, will join the Microsoft team.
