What Can Make or Break Your Exit Strategy?

In today’s M&A frenzy, a security program is a core requirement for IT due diligence.

Merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions are at an all-time high, with over $1.5 trillion in deals in the third quarter 2021 alone—almost double the volume of a year earlier (1). If part of your organization’s exit strategy is to be acquired, you want the due diligence process to go as smoothly as possible. 

However, in a world where technology is constantly changing, technical due diligence is getting more scrutiny than ever. Buyers are wary of taking on unnecessary technical debt such as antiquated legacy systems, but it is actually the lack of a security program—an operational risk on its own—that can slow or even squash an M&A deal altogether.

With a security program using the SecurityProgram platform, EdTech provider Ellevation:

  • Bolstered its overall security posture;
  • Sped its growth by simplifying response to RFP security questionnaires; and
  • As an M&A acquisition target, it actually accelerated the IT due diligence to complete the transaction.

Get the full story about how having a documented security program can speed your exit strategy.
