Insight Partners Pays $780M Cash for Recorded Future
Private equity firm Insight Partners confirmed plans to purchase a controlling interest in Recorded Future with a $780 million all-cash deal. The new interest will be added to the minority stake that Insight Partners already has in the threat intelligence company.
Thomas calls this one of the most notable deals so far in 2019 and thinks the threat intelligence space is one to watch. 'That's one category where ... I think people weren't able to automate threat intelligence as much as they wanted to,' he says, adding that Recorded Future was ahead of its competitors in the space. He calls it 'a really good sign for the threat intelligence community' and likely 'a very nice exit' for many of those at Recorded Future.
Indeed, Recorded Future had most recently completed its Series E funding and raised a total of $57.9 million since it was founded in 2009. Insight Partners managing director Mike Triplett and vice president Thomas Krane will join the company's board of directors.

Maybe focus on readership over ad revenue?
I'm not going to click through 12 pages to read a list of 10 things.  At some point, you should focus on ways to retain your readership numbers by not making them grumpy, instead of focusing on ad revenue.

I'll just read the information somewhere else that gets that - or just use Google if I really can't live without knowing what's on the list.
