Media and telecommunications giant Comcast said it has acquired BluVector, a company that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology to help detect cyber threats.
The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“BluVector is a global leader in leveraging AI and machine learning to defend against advanced cyber threats,” Don Mathis, GM, Growth at Comcast said. “We’re thrilled that BluVector is part of Comcast and are excited to support its continued growth, even as we explore new opportunities to leverage BluVector technology and expertise.”
Eric Malawer has been named CEO of BluVector and will lead the company as it continues to grow its business as part of Comcast. Malawer previously served as cybersecurity staff director for the House Committee on Homeland Security, and prior to his role at BluVector, he launched three AI and security companies.
Comcast Chief Information Security Officer Noopur Davis will lead the process of identifying opportunities to leverage the combined technology and expertise to support new products and initiatives, Comcast said.
