Private investment firm BainCapital has completed the acquisition of network detection and response provider ExtraHop.

The transaction, first announced on June 8, 2021, valued ExtraHop at US $900 million.

ExtraHop said on Friday it is poised to accelerate momentum under new ownership and further advance its mission to help organisations detect and respond to advanced threats.

"Software supply chain attacks and the rise of double-extortion ransomware have brought security to the forefront of both business and consumer awareness, and organisations are actively looking for new ways to reclaim the upper hand against these advanced threats," said Arif Kareem, CEO, ExtraHop.

Adding the resources, expertise, and financial support of Bain Capital Private Equity and Crosspoint Capital Partners will allow ExtraHop to extend our leadership in the network detection and response market and continue to innovate to help our customers stay ahead of the game."

"We are excited to invest behind ExtraHop as a true leader in the next big segment in cybersecurity—network detection and response—which organisations increasingly require to respond to today’s escalating threats proactively," said David Humphrey, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Private Equity.”

“We are honoured to partner with ExtraHop and look forward to working with the team as they continue to build an innovative, best-in-class offering that helps customers defend and overcome advanced threats,” added Max de Groen, a Managing Director at Bain Capital Private Equity.

"The cybersecurity market is seeing an incredible amount of innovation, and for good reason. With advanced threats like supply chain attacks and ransomware on the rise, the time to invest in accelerating this innovation is now,” said Greg Clark, Managing Partner at Crosspoint Capital Partners.

“ExtraHop is poised to be one of the revolutionary great companies in this next era of cyber.”

David Sajoto, Vice President of Sales for Asia Pacific and Japan, ExtraHop, said, "Today's agreement solidifies our efforts to accelerate our mission to help our customers detect and respond to advanced threats. It also reinforces the value and importance of network detection and response to empower enterprises and SMEs to take back the advantage from cybercriminals.

“With Bain Capital Private Equity and Crosspoint Capital Partners, we will continue to invest in our talent, partners, and technology innovations, as well as expand our reach across Asia Pacific and Japan."
