Strategic acquisition of additional IAM capabilities strengthens Protiviti’s solutions to help solve enterprise customers’ security challenges
Global consulting firm Protiviti has acquired Identropy, a security consulting firm that specializes in advisory, implementation and managed services for identity and access management (IAM) and access governance solutions. Identropy was a privately held company headquartered in Austin, Texas with more than 40 employees. With this acquisition, Protiviti strengthens its ability to meet the growing need to combat data breaches and provide clients with pragmatic and innovative IAM services.
Identropy’s team of IAM experts joins Protiviti’s leading Security and Privacy practice and contributes to the Digital Identity as a Service offering, which provides end-to-end services from strategic advisory through the management of identity environments. When companies tackle IAM effectively, the result is empowered and trusted users who can safely connect to sensitive resources no matter where they are. Securing enterprise information in a compliant and cost-effective manner while enhancing cyber protection with an optimal user experience is complex and difficult, particularly in today’s boundary-less environments in which employees use a variety of applications and tools – in the cloud, via mobile and on their own devices.
Founded in 2006, Identropy has three lines of business – advisory, implementation and managed services – that help clients in a variety of industries achieve compliance, security, cost containment and operational reliability.
Identropy’s proven “Plan, Build, Run” approach has helped customers build and maintain successful Identity and Access Management (IAM) programs. Through exclusive focus on IAM and a combination of vendor-agnostic advisory services, deep domain and implementation expertise, and flexible managed services capabilities honed over 200+ successful implementations, Identropy has pioneered the development of a model that balances needs, security best practices and operational requirements.
