On The Acquisition Trail
With a new name and the close of its split from Intel behind it, McAfee says it will now look to make moves in the market to expand its portfolio. In an interview with CRN, CEO Chris Young (pictured) said McAfee will have “available to us all option” as it looks to build out its portfolio, including building, partnering, and buying products. When it comes to acquisitions, Young declined to say exactly where McAfee will look to make purchases, saying only that the company plans to “have a broad portfolio.” CRN spoke with analysts and partners about what areas could make sense for McAfee to make some acquisitions, including around cloud, endpoint, and security analytics. Here are ten companies they speculated McAfee could buy in the months to come.
