Sunbelt Software Acquired by GFI Software

GFI Software : 13 July, 2010  (Company News)
The successful Vipre product suite was the target of GFI Software when the company acquired the assets of Sunbelt Software, enabling GFI to enhance its range of anti-virus products
GFI Software has acquired Sunbelt Software and specifically its Vipre product suite. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The acquisition will allow GFI to merge Vipre technology into GFI's email security and web security solutions group, and will provide GFI with new security products consisting of world-class and innovative technology. The assets of Sunbelt's software distribution business, started over 16 years ago and separate from the technology side of the company, will be divested into a separate entity and the company is exploring other strategic partnerships.

"Over the past several years, we have looked extensively for the best technologies, the best developers and the best management teams that will allow us to expand our current product offerings and to provide the best service we can to our customer base. We were impressed by the high quality and innovative technology that underlies Sunbelt's Vipre line of products and immediately saw strong synergies between the two companies. We have acquired a good, growing and cash-flow positive business that fits well within GFI's strategic vision to consolidate our products and grow our business," said Walter Scott, CEO of GFI.

"Furthermore, Sunbelt's technology is backed by a reliable, committed customer support team that provides great service - something so important for us. We see this investment in Sunbelt and its Vipre technology as an excellent opportunity to increase our install base, drive the software globally through our international partner channel and also build our consumer market, which has a powerful drag-along effect on the SME and SoHo markets," Scott added.

"The technologies developed by both companies are highly complementary and I have a hard time imagining a better combination," said Alex Eckelberry, CEO of Sunbelt Software. "Additionally, GFI and Sunbelt are rooted in similar business principles, with similar markets and a commitment to superlative customer service."
