IBM is acquiring Randori, an offensive cybersecurity provider.

The acquisition advances IBM’s hybrid cloud strategy and strengthens its AI-powered cybersecurity services.

“Our clients today are faced with managing a complex technology landscape of accelerating cyberattacks targeted at applications running across a variety of hybrid cloud environments – from public clouds, private clouds and on-premises,” said Mary O’Brien, general manager of IBM Security. “In this environment, it is essential for organizations to arm themselves with attacker’s perspective to help find their most critical blind spots and focus their efforts on areas that will minimize business disruption and damages to revenue and reputation.”
