GFI Software continues with strong strategic growth through acquiring companies with a strong portfolio of network management products for SMBs.
Austin (TX), USA, April 27, 2017 – GFI Software today announced the acquisition of Exinda, a US-based software company creating solutions designed to help IT teams manage the way users, traffic, devices and applications behave across the network. Founded in 2002, Exinda is trusted by over 4,000 business and educational organisations worldwide to ensure that their business-critical applications always perform as promised.
“The acquisition of Exinda strengthens GFI’s ability to deliver on its promise to create simple yet powerful products for the SMB market,” said Scott Brighton, CEO of GFI Software, and added: “Exinda’s application and network performance tools perfectly complement the existing GFI’s product portfolio of communication and security products, and bring tremendous added value to our constantly expanding global community of customers and partners. By acquiring Exinda we’re getting one step closer to our strategic goal - building a world-class network security, management and communication platform for SMBs.”
The acquisition includes a set of tools developed by Exinda, focused on application visibility and control: the award-winning Exinda Network Orchestrator, and specific tools focused on Microsoft applications, such as Office 365 and Skype for Business.
“Exinda has worked tirelessly with our customers to ensure that their business-critical applications perform consistently and reliably,” said Michael Sharma, CEO of Exinda, and added: “Now, as part of GFI, our customers and partners will benefit from the increased scale and access to world-class security products, which will make the network administrator continue to look like a hero to their end user.” Exinda was advised by New York-based Sparring Partners Capital during this process, while Razorhorse Capital advised GFI on this acquisition.
