Back In Private Hands

Sophos potentially will walk away from the public market just four and a half years after its initial public offering following the $3.82 billion purchase offer from private equity giant Thoma Bravo. The potential acquisition of the Abington, U.K.-based SMB platform security giant would add yet another cybersecurity firm to the expansive portfolio of Chicago and San Francisco-based Thoma Bravo.

“They know the space, and they know what’s necessary to succeed and drive innovation and growth and operational performance to accelerate both the top line and bottom line,” Sophos CEO Kris Hagerman told CRN.

Sophos protects more than 400,000 organizations across 150 countries from today's most advanced cyberthreats, securing endpoints and networks against evolving cyberattack techniques like ransomware, malware, exploits, data exfiltration, active-adversary breaches, and phishing. Sophos sells its products and services exclusively through a global channel of more than 47,000 partners and MSPs. 

Here's a look at how Sophos could leverage Thoma Bravo’s expertise and track record to its advantage, the role Sophos’ existing management team would play going forward, and whether Thoma Bravo is considering deep job cuts at Sophos.
