Most acquisitive companies are proficient at operational, financial, and competitive due diligence, but are you overlooking a technical audit of targets? A technical audit can be a key differentiator in early-stage value determination and can prove invaluable in avoiding costly software and development surprises post-acquisition.
The most comprehensive technical audit possible, without warning target companies, can eliminate many potential risks during deal origination. Once a target is engaged, we offer a detailed final due diligence program where we interact with the target's management.
Shaw and Partners’ fully remote structure makes immediate testing possible by providing access to uniquely skilled testers on demand.
An Audit specifically designed to provide a clear picture of a target’s technological risks and vulnerabilities, with recommendations to properly support your M&A due diligence.
We operate under the strictest confidence. Our testers and contracts are backed by Non-Disclosure Agreements to ensure our every action remains secure and confidential.
Receive vulnerability and risk insights as our testers discover them. This reduces risk by providing solutions that can be implemented while our audit progresses.
Our security experts review each finding and prioritize critical vulnerabilities providing recommendations for those first.
Our testers’ skills are matched to best suit specific evaluations. To promote the discovery of more complex vulnerabilities, we offer the option to provide incentives for testers per vulnerability.
Our focus lets inhouse security concentrate on day-to-day tasks, while the Black Box Audit™ team is dedicated to reviewing, locating, validating, and prioritizing risks and vulnerabilities of a target under an M&A negotiation.
Our final report will provide management with details on methodology, findings, risk ratings, and recommendations to secure a smooth M&A from a technological point of view.
To illustrate our strategy, we assessed Zoom, WebEx, BlueJeans, GoToMeeting, GlobalMeet and Join.Me, the top six video conferencing services in the market.
Available upon request, our full analysis consists of a 20+ page presentation and more than 50 pages of supporting documentation.
