Security software giant Avast Software has announced it has agreed to purchase AVG Technologies for $1.3 billion in cash.

The companies said in a statement that the acquisition will see Avast pay $25 per share for its Amsterdam-based rival.

Along with its own cash, Avast is using the $1.6 billion in financing it received from Credit Suisse Securities, Jefferies and UBS investment bank to fund the deal.

Both firms were founded in the old Czechoslovakia more than 25 years ago, going on to become two of the biggest names in security software.

The companies have a user base of around 400 million between them, which includes the 160 million people who use their mobile products.

Avast said the deal will enable the Prague-based firm to expand its overall reach, both in terms of customers and into new areas such as Internet of Things security.

The acquisition was announced back in July, with scale and geographical breadth touted as the driving forces, along with a plan to expand product offerings including in the Internet of Things space.

Speaking to TechCrunch ahead of the deal closing, Steckler said the two companies have been circling each other for decades, given their shared industry and business location.

And finally the summer Avast convinced AVG they were better off as one.

This was, I think, the fourth attempt we have made in the last two or two and a half years to buy AVG, he said.

But while competitive spirit kept them apart for years — a combination of pride and arrogance on both sides, reckons Steckler — larger forces reshaping the computing landscape and the security market are evidently driving them together now.

Getting hold of AVG s 160M end points, to add to our 240M, it adds a lot more end points into our data analysis — which improves the security results and allows us to stay ahead of others.

We've seen a major move in the antivirus world this morning, as Avast has acquired AVG for the princely sum of $1.3 billion around £1 billion, AU$1.7 billion .

Both companies were founded in the Czech Republic and are famous for their freebie antivirus offerings – with the obvious expectation being that Avast will be able to strengthen its protection due to bringing AVG's expertise on board.

For its part, Avast says that the acquisition will give it further 'technological depth' and wider geographical coverage, along with improved organisational efficiencies.

The company also mentioned pushing forward with security for the ever-expanding Internet of Things – a market which will indeed need security in spades.

The new merged company will cover some 400 million devices, 160 million of which will be mobile devices.

The acquisition is based on Avast forking out $25 per share in cash – a 33% premium over AVG's closing share price yesterday – and has been approved by the boards on both sides.

It’s been over a year since security software giant Avast purchased rival AVG Technologies for $1.3 billion, bringing its total user numbers to around 400 million.

Now, the Czech company has acquired Piriform, the UK-based firm behind popular system-cleaning tool CCleaner.

Both companies announced the deal on their respective websites, but the terms of the acquisition were not revealed.

The move cements Avast’s place at the top of the anti-malware industry, where its market share is around 20 percent.

Piriform makes a number of device performance optimization programs, though it’s best known for CCleaner, which is used by 130 million people, including 15 million Android users.

In November last year, the company announced that the utility had been downloaded over 2 billion times.

Global Endpoint Security Market is estimated to reach USD 27.05 billion by 2024 owing to increasing deployment of security solutions with growing security risks in different industry applications.

Endpoint security or endpoint protection is a centralized approach to protect all the endpoint devices such as laptops, desktops, smartphones, servers and other devices connected to the corporate IT network, from the cyber threats.Endpoint security enables effective, efficient and easier security management.

This type of security offers effective security to the endpoints, thereby securing the network by blocking risky activities and access attempts at endpoints.Endpoint security systems can be broadly categorized into two types.

The key difference between the two is that there is no centralized administration and management for consumers whereas the centralized management mandate necessary for the enterprises.

Another driving force for the growth of the market is the need for compliance within government financial organizations, which will ultimately prompt users to adopt endpoint security solutions.Request a Free Sample Copy of Endpoint Security Market Report @ https://www.millioninsights.com/industry-reports/endpoint-security-market/request-sample The trend witnessed within the global endpoint security industry is the surging demand for software-as-a-service (SaaS) based security solution since they are easy to install, and upgrade and are affordable.
