Resolver Acquires RiskVision to Expand Position in IT Risk and Compliance

Resolver has finalized the acquisition of RiskVision, increasing its position in the IT risk and compliance markets. RiskVision offers capabilities including threat and vulnerability management, it risk, vendor risk, and incident management, complementing Resolver’s existing market offerings and in line with its approach to “plan, prepare, respond, and recover.”

As a result of the acquisition, Resolver will employ a team of over 225 security, risk, and compliance professionals working from offices in Sunnyvale CA, Charleston WV, Edmonton AB, London UK, Dubai UAE, Hyderabad India, and Christchurch NZ. Resolver’s headquarters remain in Toronto, ON.

Organizations are under increasing pressure to avoid the risk of data breach, said Will Anderson, CEO of Resolver, noting that RiskVision’s product capabilities in this arena extend Resolver’s ability to help its customers’ information security and compliance teams.

 “The key to managing risk is in making data-driven decisions,” added Anderson. “With information security there is a considerable amount of insight that comes from asset monitoring tools and event monitoring tools. Often this data becomes noisy and challenging to prioritize, especially with limited resources. With RiskVision’s technology, we can help Information Security Officers prioritize their focus to reduce vulnerabilities and threats.”

With the acquisition, Resolver says it is expanding the service and support capabilities offered to RiskVision customers. With Resolver’s expanded global presence, it offers customers true ‘follow-the-sun’ 24/7 support. Resolver will maintain RiskVision development teams in California and India, continuing product support. In addition, Resolver will integrate these teams into the existing development plans to bring forward capabilities on its next generation platform even sooner.
