Recorded Future announces its acquisition for $780M

MAY 30, 2019

Massive congratulations to the Recorded Future team, who today announced their acquisition by Insight Partners for $780 million.

The deal represents one of the largest security software transactions of the year and the largest ever in the threat intelligence space. 

Recorded Future’s unique technology collects and analyzes vast amounts of data to deliver relevant cyber threat insights in real time. Their solution aggregates this rich intelligence with any other threat data sources, empowering security teams to collaborate on analysis and delivering intelligence wherever you need it most, including rapid integration with existing security solutions.

We are incredibly proud to have been supporting Recorded Future since 2012, when we led the company's $12 million Series C round. Seven years later, Recorded Future has seen amazing organic growth and become the largest privately-held threat intelligence software company in the world. This milestone will allow them to accelerate the next phase of the company's global growth and pursue new capabilities.
