March Cyber Intelligence Review
March was a busy month in the Cyber / Intel arena with some newsworthy market developments, and a handful of notable acquisitions and VC funding transactions taking place.
In the federal arena, General Keith Alexander, Director, NSA and Commander of CYBERCOM spoke to the House Committee on Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities. General Alexander addressed key cyber threats and challenges facing our nation, as well as the country’s approach to offensive cyber operations.
On the M&A / VC funding front, security and cloud computing remain top priorities, with Dell’s acquisition of once-public SonicWall for over $1 billion, and AMD’s purchase of SeaMicro for $334 million leading the way.
