BlueteamGlobal Rebrands as BlueVoyant
BlueteamGlobal, a global cybersecurity services firm launched earlier this year, announced that it is changing its name to BlueVoyant. Co-founded by CEO Jim Rosenthal, former Chief Operating Officer at Morgan Stanley, and Executive Chairman Tom Glocer, former Chief Executive Officer at Thomson Reuters, BlueVoyant will provide Advanced Cyber Threat Intelligence for large companies and managed security services for smaller businesses. The company expects to launch its new generation of commercial products in early 2018.
BlueVoyant, which has raised more than $125 million from institutional and individual investors, was formed in part by the acquisition of three cybersecurity technology businesses—BitVoyant, K2G and K2 Cyber Defense. The company, which has offices in the U.S., the U.K. and Israel, has assembled an 85-person team of leading experts from international intelligence, law enforcement and private sector organizations.
CEO Jim Rosenthal said the company chose the name for three reasons: to reaffirm our dedication to the “blue” side of cyber defense and to protecting company networks; to celebrate “voyant” and the successful integration of BitVoyant and our portfolio companies; and to create a shorter and more fully memorable name.
“Our new name embodies our purpose—to help defend businesses around the world against agile and well-financed cyber attackers by providing unparalleled visibility and insight,” Rosenthal said. “Through our unique data assets, world-class human intelligence experts, and managed security services, BlueVoyant offers the private sector exceptional cyber defense capabilities.”
