Advancive is a popular provider of  IAM solutions, including identity and access governance, single sign-on and federation, and IAM “strategic advisory”—areas where “end-to-end” security solutions provider Optiv looks to sharpen its focus with this acquisition.

The transaction and resulting combination of people,knowledge, technology, and best practices will allow Optiv to continue to expand its IAM offerings. It also enables the company to establish a physical global presence to better help clients plan, build and run IAM and security programs that meet their specific business needs.

“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.”
