Bomgar, a Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions provider is all set to acquire BeyondTrust, from an affiliate of Veritas Capital. The combined company, which will be called BeyondTrust, brings together proven innovators with a shared mission of securing privileged access and helping customers to defend themselves from cyber-attacks while increasing productivity. These combined solutions will result in the world’s most comprehensive PAM portfolio, currently used by more than 19,000 customers worldwide.
Matt Dircks, CEO of Bomgar, who will lead the combined company as CEO, commented, “We are extremely excited to build upon BeyondTrust’s Privileged Access Management leadership, and the significant benefits it will bring to our joint customers, partners, and people. Both organizations bring talented employees who are passionate about protecting organizations from attacks related to privileged access. The greater scale and resources of the combined company will allow us to accelerate innovation and deliver technology that protects our customers from constantly evolving threats.”
Earlier this year, Bomgar was acquired by Francisco Partners, a leading technology-focused private equity firm. Francisco Partners’ Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Dipanjan “DJ” Deb commented, “Both Bomgar and BeyondTrust have a long history of driving innovation and efficiency, and delivering solutions, services, and support that customers love. We believe bringing Bomgar and BeyondTrust together will result in a winning combination and create a leader in the high-growth Privileged Access Management market.”
“The BeyondTrust family is excited to join the dynamic Bomgar and Francisco Partners teams,” said Kevin Hickey, president and CEO, BeyondTrust. “I’m confident that the additional investment and scale resulting from this combination will drive innovation for our customers and new opportunities for our partners as we expand our leadership position in the fast-moving Privileged Access Management market. Working with the Veritas Capital team over the last four years, we have transformed the business by strengthening our product offering, enhancing our market position, and generating outstanding growth.”
