Synopsys to Acquire White Hat Security in $330M All-Cash Deal

Apr 28, 2022

By Ryan Naraine on April 28, 2022 Electronic design automation powerhouse Synopsys is expanding its reach into the cybersecurity business with plans to shell out $330 million to acquire White Hat security. Synopsys, based in Mountain View, Calif., said the all-cash deal will provide an entrance to the DAST (dynamic application security market) and add to a growing portfolio of cybersecurity subsidiaries. Synopsys already owns Coverity ( acquired for $375 million ), Black Duck Software ( $550 million acquisition ) and Cigital and has used the acquisition route to build out a stack of products to capture enterprise cybersecurity budgets. WhiteHat Security, founded by Jeremiah Grossman in the early days of the webapp pen-testing market, was acquired by Tokyo-based Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation in 2019 and rebranded as NTT Security before Synopsys came calling with a $330 million all-cash price tag. According to Jason Schmitt, general manager of the Software Integrity Group at Synopsys, the WhiteHat Security deal merges two companies that are “strategically aligned, with a shared vision for delivering SaaS-based security testing services and building security into the software development life cycle.” He said the WhiteHat Security technology provides the ability for Synopsys to sell a full security solutions stack into the enterprise market, including tools for static code analysis (SAST), dynamic analysis (DAST), software composition analysis (SCA) and interactive application security testing (IAST). Synopsys expects the planned acquisition to close in the third fiscal quarter.
