The combination of our respective strengths, and our shared vision for the future of application security, presents exciting, new opportunities for the broader market and this acquisition will expand our footprint as part of the larger Synopsys portfolio.

As a result, our global customers can expect to receive the same high-quality, subscription-based services as always while gaining access to a broader portfolio of application security testing tools and services through one trusted partner.

Thank you to all our WhiteHat team members, past and present, for your dedication and hard work that led to our continued success in helping our customers secure the applications that run their digital business. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory review.  Until the transaction is closed, both companies will continue to operate independently. Once the transaction closes, we look forward to entering a new era for our business, the application security market, and the global cybersecurity community at large.
