Cloud: Google acquires cybersecurity startup Siemplify

Google confirmed in early January 2022 that it had acquired Israeli cybersecurity startup Siemplify and integrated it into Google Cloud Security.

In August 2021, in response to the explosion of cyberattacks on U.S. critical infrastructure, Google made a commitment to U.S. President Joe Biden to invest $10 billion to strengthen its cybersecurity capabilities.

At the beginning of 2022, the Internet giant confirmed an acquisition that had been announced several weeks before: the purchase of the Israeli cybersecurity startup Siemplify. Specialising in SOAR, the New York-based startup had raised $58 million, notably from G20 Ventures and 83North.

The amount of the deal has not been officially disclosed, but a source close to Google suggests a figure of $500 million. Siemplify has been integrated into Google Cloud Security to strengthen the automated cyberattack response capabilities of its cloud infrastructure.
