The company has entered a strategic advisory partnership with NightDragon to aid its growth and drive meaningful impact for corporate enterprises facing growing challenges at the intersection of cyber and physical security.

As part of this partnership, NightDragon founder and managing director and cybersecurity industry luminary Dave DeWalt will also form and lead Dataminr's new Corporate Market Advisory Board of top industry leaders from the fields of physical security, cyber security and reputation risk.

Together, this board will provide ongoing strategic guidance to Dataminr, assist the company in further expanding its client foothold across global enterprises, and help to unlock the full potential of its real-time information discovery platform across a growing set of corporate use cases.

"In today's world, we are facing greater cyber and physical threats than ever before, reinforcing the need for faster response, more effective risk mitigation and stronger crisis management for      corporate enterprises around the world," Dataminr founder and CEO Ted Bailey says.

Dataminr is uniquely positioned to solve these challenges with our real-time AI Platform, and with the help of NightDragon and our new corporate market advisory board chaired by Dave DeWalt, we can establish ourselves as the leader in the emerging space of converged cyber-physical security," Bailey adds.

"Over the last few years, we have seen the fusion of cyber and physical coming together, demanding a new generation of real-time risk mitigation tools," DeWalt says.

"The NightDragon team and I look forward to working closely with the Dataminr team to bring to market the industry's first cyber-physical threat fusion solution to CISOs and CSOs and further establish the company as the clear market leader in this emerging field."
