Optiv Security Expands Identity and Access Management Leadership Position with Close of Advancive Acquisition
Transaction Brings Together Two Respected IAM Organizations to Solve Client Identity Problems in New and Innovative Ways
Denver – April 12, 2016 - Optiv Security, a market-leading provider of end-to-end cyber security solutions, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Advancive LLC, a provider of identity and access management (IAM) services and solutions. The transaction and resulting combination of people, know-how and best practices, allows Optiv to continue to expand its IAM expertise and offerings, and provide new and innovative IAM services and solutions. It also enables the company to establish a physical global presence to better help clients plan, build and run holistic IAM and security programs that meet their specific business needs. The terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.
“Organizations face numerous cyber security problems when managing user identities and access requirements,” said Christina Richmond, program director, security services for IDC. “With the growing use of cloud, mobile and other new technologies across the enterprise, it is increasingly challenging for companies to ensure that only trusted employees, partners and consumers can seamlessly access the right applications using trusted devices. As such, companies must find a trusted partner that understands how identity fits into the broader cyber security landscape, and has the expertise and capabilities to help develop the right strategy and execute on that plan.”
This transaction provides Optiv and Advancive clients with greater benefits through improved access to resources, capabilities and solutions, including:
“This transaction aligns with our long-term strategy to be an innovative leader in the IAM industry by solving client problems with a programmatic mindset, high quality services, the best technologies and advanced holistic solutions,” said Bryan Wiese, vice president of identity and access management for Optiv. “The complementary strengths of our two companies will position us to capture the growth opportunities created by the rapidly evolving IAM industry. I’m excited to welcome the Advancive team and looking forward to all that we will achieve together.”
Holland & Hart LLP served as advisors to Optiv on the transaction.
