Commercial software licenses in software due diligence

In a merger and acquisition (M&A) tech transaction where the code is much of the value, acquirers want to ensure that the components used are properly licensed. If they are not, the purchaser might be exposed to legal issues that they will need to address. In 2021, 78% of the code that Synopsys audited was comprised of third-party components.

Devo SOARs to New Heights with LogicHub Acquisition

In cybersecurity, one thing is certain: the bad guys are relentless. They never stop working and scheming to find new ways to attack weaknesses in data security. Their objective is criminally simple: breach organizations to steal and monetize data. And they use every means possible to do it. On the other side are cybersecurity companies and the professionals who work for them. We never stop working to improve our products and services to protect our customers from those global threat actors.

How attack surface management helps during an M&A process

There is always the risk that sensitive data will be exposed during mergers and acquisitions. Throughout the M&A process, you’re adding new ways for hackers to enter your systems, enabling them to access sensitive customer information. This is because the merging of companies usually results in an increase in the attack surface, therefore, increasing the number of unknown security risks the acquiring company is unaware of. The numbers don’t lie.

5 Common Risks Involved in Mergers and Acquisitions

The total global value of corporate mergers and acquisitions (M&A) reached $5.9 trillion in 2021. For 2022, the figure is expected to reach $4.7 trillion. This would make 2022 the second-best year on record for the M&A market after 2021. Clearly, robust M&A opportunities exist for companies looking to stimulate growth, increase market share, and influence supply chains. Despite those potential benefits, however, M&A deals are also fraught with serious risks.
