9 October 2015 - US-based cybersecurity company RiskIQ has acquired PassiveTotal to expand its portfolio into threat analysis, the company said.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The newly released PassiveTotal Platform, supported by RiskIQ threat data, enables analysts to map out the attack footprint of adversaries.

RiskIQ uses a global proxy network and virtual user technology, and continuously discovers, inventories and monitors managed, unmanaged and rogue web and mobile assets.
This 'Enterprise Digital Footprint' is persistently scanned for anomalies, external threats, malvertisements and brand impersonation.
RiskIQ is headquartered in San Francisco and backed by growth equity firms Summit Partners and Battery Ventures.
