CMS has advised Bitdefender, a global cybersecurity leader, on its cross-border acquisition of Singapore-based Horangi Cyber Security to address the growing demand for advanced, streamlined management of cybersecurity, compliance, and governance of multi-cloud environments.

With this acquisition, Bitdefender will incorporate Horangi’s Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) capabilities into the Bitdefender GravityZone unified risk and security analytics platform to add critical compliance and governance capabilities to Bitdefender’s leading threat prevention, protection, detection and response capabilities. Additionally, Horangi’s security services offerings, including proactive risk assessment, red teaming, and penetration testing, will integrate with and complement Bitdefender Managed Detection & Response (MDR) services.

The CMS team advising on this complex transaction was led by Babita Ambekar (Partner) and Horea Popescu (Client Relationship Partner), with support from Sam Ng (Of Counsel, Singapore), James Fisher (Associate, Singapore), Leslie Tay (Associate, Singapore), Ian McKie (Associate, London) and Mircea Moraru (Counsel, Bucharest).
