Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Mergers and Acquisitions

Law firms, Accounting firms, Businesses, and Third Party M&A Advisory firms specializing in Mergers & Acquisitions who are looking to merge with or purchase another company — look to Vestige for I.T. risk assessment to determine a company’s “cyber health”.

M&A professionals utilize Vestige to perform IT Assessments for the purpose of due diligence of I.T. systems — to determine their strengths, weaknesses and risks prior to the merger or acquisition of a company.  We assist by determining if the company has been hacked or breached and help to identify the level of risk the company has from an I.T. standpoint prior to ‘sealing the deal’.  It’s important to know when to negotiate a better price or walk away from a deal due to existing security issues, which could include compromised networks, data breaches, or poor compliance practices.
