Thoma Bravo to Acquire Significant Majority Interest in Centrify
Thoma Bravo, a leading private equity investment firm, today announced it will acquire a majority interest in Centrify, the market-leading next-generation Identity & Access Management platform, from its venture capital investors, led by Mayfield, Accel Partners, Jackson Square Ventures and Index Ventures. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of this year, subject to usual and customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, compromised user identities is the top cybersecurity attack vector, and with the shift to cloud computing by enterprises, cloud security risks such as password sprawl and privileged access management are expected to accelerate. Centrify meets these challenges as the only Leader in both The Forrester Wave Privileged Identity Management (PIM) and Identity-As-A-Service (IDaaS) reports. By converging these solutions into a unified Next-Gen Access platform for Zero Trust Security, Centrify is well-positioned as an early entrant and cybersecurity innovator of next-generation technology that protects its customers’ assets and access to information from external and internal cyber threats.
