Cyber Security Valuations

The median trailing-twelve-months (TTM) revenue multiple for CyberSecurity Companies reached the highest level in 2.5 years, at 9.3x in the third quarter of 2020.

Going forward, CyberSecurity firms are going to be in record demand, as proven by last year’s data.

 

CyberSecurity’s median revenue multiple (8.8x) is almost 30% lower than the SaaS one (12.5x).

That is surprising knowing that 3 security companies were in the Top 10 EV/TTM Revenue SEG SaaS Index over the second quarter of 2020. Okta, Crowdstrike and Zscaler reported multiples of 33.9x, 27.7x and 24.2x, respectively.

After a slight recovery in the first quarter of 2020 YOY, where it reached 50.5x, it sharply declined over the next two quarters, where it was around the lowest level it had been in the past 2 years.

Despite that, the multiple then picked up again in the last quarter of 2020, reaching 68.6x. Such a high EBITDA multiple may indicate that profitable CyberSecurity companies enjoy much higher valuations.
