M&A Cyber Due Diligence
For Target Companies

As an acquisition target, it’s your responsibility to show your buyer that your system won’t pose a risk to theirs.

Through in-depth technical assessments and proactive threat hunting, you can proactively identify any cybersecurity risks, vulnerabilities, and IT hygiene concerns.

Redpoint provides enterprise-grade threat hunting and risk analysis services to help you meet this need.

We can also work with target companies to conduct penetration testing to uncover exploitable vulnerabilities within networks and systems.

All of this information will be compiled into a strategic report that you can use to both remediate gaps and demonstrate cyber readiness to the buyer.

For Buyers

For buyers, understanding the cybersecurity risks of an acquisition target is essential. Overlooking a target’s vulnerabilities can lead to unexpected challenges that impact your investment’s value.

The Redpoint team can deliver an in-depth view of the target’s cybersecurity status, including an asset inventory and attack surface mapping.

We can also help you assess your target’s potential operational, financial, and reputational costs associated with remediating identified cybersecurity issues.

Having this information helps you evaluate the investment’s risk versus reward.

Furthermore, we can develop a robust integration strategy that incorporates the detailed analysis of the target company’s security posture for a smoother transition and effective risk management post-acquisition.
