The Attachmate Group was built by Thoma Bravo and its other private equity investors to become the world’s largest independent provider of access and integration software for legacy systems. Through a series of acquisitions, Attachmate Group consisted of Attachmate, NetIQ, Novell and SUSE, whose products enable organizations to maximize the value of their existing IT investments as they advance their long-term business and IT strategies. In 2014, Attachmate Group merged with Micro Focus International plc, a multinational software and information technology business based in Newbury, Berkshire, England. The company provides software and consultancy services for clients updating legacy systems to more modern platforms. Micro Focus is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.
