Microfocus Adds to Acquisition List
Micro Focus, a U.K.-based enterprise software company with U.S. headquarters in Rockville, announced the acquisition of GWAVA, Inc., a worldwide leader in Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA). The transaction extends Micro Focus’s rapidly growing software portfolio and comes on the heels of its announcement to merge with Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) Software Business Segment.
“Micro Focus has continuously made acquisitions that have allowed it to further develop its customer value proposition and extend its product portfolio,” said Micro Focus CEO, Stephen Murdoch. “Today’s organizations need to maximize the value of their existing IT infrastructure, while still embracing the opportunities presented by new technology so they can innovate faster with the lowest possible risk. The acquisition of GWAVA serves both purposes of protecting and further expanding value to our loyal customers, while adding leadership in the growth market of Enterprise Information Archiving.”
