As a result of the acquisition, Resolver will employ a team of over 225 security, risk and compliance professionals working from offices in California, West Virginia, Alberta, London, Dubai, India and New Zealand.  Resolver’s headquarters remain in Toronto.

“Organizations are under increasing pressure to contain the risk of data breach,” said Will Anderson, CEO, Resolver. “RiskVision’s product capabilities in this arena extend Resolver’s ability to help our customers’ Information Security and Compliance teams.”

Through the acquisition, Resolver expands the service and support capabilities offered to RiskVision customers, the company says. It will maintain RiskVision development teams in California and India, continuing product support. These teams will be integrated into the existing development plans to bring forward capabilities on its next generation platform.

According to Anderson, “the key to managing risk is making data-driven decisions. 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.”  

RiskVision further offers capabilities including threat and vulnerability management, IT risk, vendor risk and incident management. Resolver says these capabilities will complement its existing market offerings.
