Results International is delighted to announce that it has acted as exclusive financial advisor to the shareholders of MWR InfoSecurity, a cybersecurity company operating globally from its main offices in the UK, the US, South Africa and Singapore, on its sale to F-Secure.

This deal further cements Results International’s position as the leading advisor in the European cybersecurity sector and evidences our strong capabilities in delivering high value transactions for disruptive and fast-growth technology services companies.

With close to 400 employees, MWR InfoSecurity is among the largest cybersecurity service providers serving enterprises globally. MWR InfoSecurity has highly skilled experts in offensive techniques who understand the attacker mindset and is well-known in the industry for its technical expertise and research. Its threat hunting platform Countercept provides extensive proactive attack detection and complements F-Secure’s existing strengths. Additionally, F-Secure’s portfolio will be enhanced by MWR InfoSecurity’s suite of managed phishing protection services (phishd).

The acquisition is a significant milestone in the execution of F-Secure’s growth strategy, and makes it the largest European single source of cybersecurity services and detection and response solutions.

The combined company will have hundreds of the world’s best cybersecurity consultants, making F-Secure one of the few truly global technical security advisors positioned to help organizations fight today’s most sophisticated threats.

Results achieved an excellent valuation from the best partner for MWR. They are a very talented team of corporate finance advisors with an impressive network of contacts across the cyber industry and I would unquestionably recommend them.
