Francisco exploring potential sale of online security company NSO Group

U.S. private equity firm, Francisco Partners, is looking for a new buyer for secretive online security company NSO group. Francisco bought a majority in NSO last year for $115 million, the largest private equity deal in Israel in the first quarter of 2014. After the agreed sale of its medication management company, Aesynt, at the end of last month, Francisco is exploring a potential sale of NSO, a company that helps governments track mobile phone data and conversations. NSO is frequently changing its name and its ready to use software can be used to monitor all data, images and text messages on a user's mobile phone.
