AGC Partners Advises KEYW on the Divestiture of HawkEye G to WatchGuard Technologies

Transaction Details

AGC Partners is pleased to announce that its client, Hexis Cyber Solutions, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation and a provider of advanced cyber and big data analytics solutions, has divested its HawkEye G next generation endpoint detection and response business unit in a sale to WatchGuard Technologies, Inc. With a team led by Ben Howe, AGC Partners acted as sole financial advisor to KEYW / Hexis.


In order for KEYW to make thorough, rational decisions on the future direction of the Hexis Cyber Solutions assets, we needed to conduct a comprehensive process that would involve as many potential acquirers and investors as possible. We chose Ben Howe and AGC Partners as our banker because of their domain knowledge of the commercial cyber software space, and because of the trust and confidence they established early on in our relationship. I cannot be more complimentary of the process or the outcome after working with them, and we owe a great deal of that to AGC's professionalism and Ben's leadership.
