Microsoft and Amazon May Open Cyber Centers in Israel


amazonIn closed-door meetings, senior officials at Microsoft have recently expressed their intention to buy at least one large Israeli cyber-security firm as a major investment.

Internet retailing giant Amazon has also put out feelers about buying one as well.

In 2013, IBM bought the Israeli information security firm Trusteer for $650 million and opened a research and development center in Israel, a model Microsoft is apparently seeking to emulate.

“Cisco, CA, Trend Micro, Huawei – we’re seeing all of them coming here hunting,” said an official from one Israeli cyber-security firm.
