Ascend Featured in Mergermarket Discussing M&A in the Cybersecurity Space

James Ward interviewed our own DJ Palmer about the state cybersecurity space over the last three months and how M&A is not slowing down despite market valuations dipping in other sectors.

July 1, 2022—By the end of May, acquisitions of North America-based cybersecurity firms in 2022 had reached USD 29bn, according to Dealogic. Despite the market being more cautious, cybersecurity multiples remain high amid the everchanging threats and security challenges. As the proliferation of technology has increased, cybersecurity has become the top priority for almost all organizations.

At the end of 2021, Ascend served as the exclusive financial advisor to ShadowDragon on its strategic investment by Sverica Capital Management. ShadowDragon is a leading threat intelligence software provider focused on offering open-source intelligence (OSINT) data and tools to both public sector and commercial clients to help streamline investigations and safeguard assets. Sverica’s resources and business operational knowledge has already allowed the business to grow faster and accelerate innovation to help customers proactively respond to even the most advanced threats.
