Thycotic Acquires Cyber Algorithms

Thycotic has acquired the network security analytics company to identify malicious privileged behavior across systems and users.

Washington, D.C. – November 8, 2016 – Thycotic, a provider of privileged account management (PAM) solutions for more than 7,500 organizations worldwide, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Virginia-based Cyber Algorithms, provider of network security analytics. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.  Cyber Algorithms brings Thycotic some of the most intuitive and easy-to-use cyber security analytics in the market allowing security personnel to detect and thwart intrusions that would otherwise go unseen.  Cyber Algorithms' innovative methods enable customers to focus immediately on high-risk user profiles and behaviors allowing them to detect and thwart intrusions and insider threats.

"While big data analytics provide a wealth of information, knowing which data-set is important requires specialized skills most organizations don’t have," said Jonathan Cogley, CTO and founder at Thycotic. "Cyber Algorithms’ technology cuts through the clutter to quickly identify in-progress attacks and enables organizations to reduce the risk of experiencing a cyber breach." 

Cyber Algorithms is a graduate of the Mach37 Cybersecurity Accelerator, a leading startup accelerator focused on launching early-stage startups in the cybersecurity industry.

"Mach37 is an example of an incubator that helps good companies accelerate their growth," said Philip Vorobeychik of Insight Venture Partners. "Insight hopes to see other companies emerge from future programs."
