McAfee will soon be sold for over $ 10 billion

Published

Cybersecurity firm McAfee will soon close a deal to sell it to American private equity firm Advent International for more than $ 10 billion. This was reported yesterday by the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the issue.

The deal is said to be announced on Monday, although negotiations may still fall apart.

McAfee and Advent did not respond to requests for comment from Reuters.

The talks are taking place as the pandemic’s shift to teleworking and the rise in cyber attacks have spurred demand for antivirus and digital security software.

The source recalls that an agreement was recently reached for another major purchase in the antivirus software market. Seeking to become a leader in this area, the American company NortonLifeLock in August agreed to buy Avast for $ 8.6 billion.

Tesla workers cannot return to offices as Elon Musk ordered

In early June, Tesla CEO Elon Musk ordered remote employees to return to their offices, and they obeyed. Only, as it turned out, Tesla itself was not ready for this. At least – her facility in Fremont (California). Workers faced a shortage of tables, parking spaces and even Wi-Fi!

During the pandemic (more precisely, since 2019), the number of Tesla employees has doubled to 99,210 people. And although Musk himself has already recognized hiring as redundant and announced the dismissal of 10% of the staff, the problem of shortage of space in offices will still have to be dealt with somehow.

The lack of parking spaces is what was waiting for Tesla workers outside, but there were simply no empty spaces inside. Tesla has reportedly repurposed some of the space during the pandemic, and of course, this did not take into account the return of the overgrown staff back to the office. It is noted that the shortage of tables was so great that managers still asked some employees to work from home. And those who had enough tables and space complained about a weak Wi-Fi signal.

All in all, Musk’s plan to get employees back in the office was not without flaws.
