Google is in Advanced Negotiations to Pay $23 Billion to Acquire the Cyber startup Wiz, making this the Company’s Largest Ever Transaction

Published

which cited people familiar with the situation, Google is in advanced talks to buy cybersecurity company Wiz for $23 billion.

A deal might be announced soon, the Journal was informed by someone with knowledge.

Wiz was established in 2020, and under CEO Assaf Rappaport, the company has expanded quickly. In May, the firm reached a $12 billion valuation, and at the time, it was considering an IPO.

Wiz declined to respond through a spokesman.

Large companies with substantial computing resources find Wiz’s cloud security product, which provides insight into the company’s whole cloud presence, appealing. A number of prestigious companies, such as Sequoia Capital, Index Ventures, Insight Partners, and Israeli venture capital firm Cyberstarts, support it.

Should the transaction go through, it would be Google’s biggest acquisition to date. Additionally, it would emphasize a strong and ongoing wager on cybersecurity in a period when nation-states and criminal actors are able to cause major disruptions to large enterprises and governments. Google has a history of making significant cyber purchases. Two years ago, the company paid $5.4 billion to acquire the cybersecurity firm Mandiant.

However, the business is currently under unprecedented antitrust scrutiny. Google has been sued twice by the Justice Department for antitrust violations. The most recent lawsuit, which was filed in 2023, focused on the company’s acquisition strategies.

Despite competitive worries, it appears that the corporation has rekindled its interest in mergers and acquisitions based on its reported discussions with Wiz. Google had been in negotiations to buy Hubspot, a provider of sales software.

A $2.7 million Investment has Been Made by a Portland Business for Autonomous Robots Intended to Clean Hospitals and Hotels

Published

on

Agadia Systems, a healthcare IT business, has partnered with Haystack Robotics, a Portland, Oregon-based startup, to raise $2.7 million for robotics technology intended for disinfection application cases.

The robots from Haystack move around a space and eliminate viruses and bacteria using UV-C light. The company’s target market includes veterinary clinics, hotels, workplaces, fitness centers, hospitals, and senior living communities.

Although Haystack is still in its infancy as a commercial product, it already has some paying users.

Haystack, one of several businesses offering disinfection robots, was founded in 2021. A few emerged from the pandemic.

With “smart disinfection,” as Haystack puts it, it sets itself apart.

Microsoft leads $40 million in funding for Starlink networking startup

Published

on

The San Francisco-based firm Armada said on July 11 that it has raised an additional $40 million through a funding round headed by Microsoft to construct mobile data centers specifically designed for SpaceX’s Starlink broadband network.

The company, which came out of stealth six months ago and stated it had raised about $100 million from investors, is first concentrating on implementing artificial intelligence computing solutions intended to enable remotely connected gadgets.

After receiving funding from its startup capital arm, M12, Microsoft is now making these software solutions available on its Azure cloud computing marketplace. The program consists of Armada’s online platform for controlling Starlink terminals together with other networked devices like drones and sensors.

In the end, Armada hopes to provide ruggedized data centers for its cloud computing ecosystem called Galleons that are the size of shipping containers. This would allow clients to handle data more quickly and effectively on-site, a process known as edge computing.

Armada indicated that a close partnership with Starlink will enable Galleons to be connected to low-Earth orbit satellites, but it did not elaborate. Requests for comments on the startup have not received a response from SpaceX.

According to Armada, satellite-connected Galleons would allow off-grid users to process data in real-time and utilize generative artificial intelligence applications that are normally limited to locations with terrestrial access.

The startup said that its customers, which included international oil and gas corporations, entertainment businesses, and state government agencies, had implemented its technology in 43 different nations.

“We are confident that Armada will pioneer a definitive guide for implementing edge AI across various challenging sectors,” M12 managing partner Michael Stewart said in a statement. “M12 has witnessed the swift progression of edge AI infrastructure towards practical use through years of investments.”

The early SpaceX backer Founders Fund spearheaded Armada’s prior $55 million fundraising round.
