Why Microsoft Will Make a Big Security Acquisition

When it comes to cybersecurity companies, Microsoft isn’t usually the first name that comes to mind. CEO Satya Nadella has been trying to change that by buying several small security firms in the past couple of years.

It would expand Microsoft’s threat intelligence and attack response services across all of its products.
