Ivanti aquires Boston-based RES Software
South Jordan-based Ivanti has acquired RES Software, the company said in a recent release. Avanti adds the digital workspace software developer to its own IT digital workspace integration and management products and services. RES has its corporate office in Boston and additional offices worldwide.
RES Software’s flagship offering addresses user environment management and identity governance across physical, virtual, and cloud environments via its converged platform, Avanti said.
“We’re excited to further expand Ivanti’s extensive product portfolio and continue to broaden our team globally with RES Software,” said Steve Daly, CEO of Ivanti. “Ivanti welcomes RES Software and its employees to the Ivanti family and we look forward to helping RES Software’s customers and partners further leverage their technology investments within the Ivanti platform.”
With a significant presence in Europe, particularly in the Benelux region, RES expands Ivanti’s customer base while furthering its global growth, according to Daly. RES Software will help Ivanti extend its existing automation capabilities to a larger pool of applications, platforms and databases.
“RES Software has been dedicated to delivering products we know our customers will love, helping to simplify the complex IT tasks associated with modern digital workspaces,” said Bob Janssen, founder and chief technical officer at RES. “We are excited to share what we’ve built with a broader, global audience and to help more CIOs with their digital transformation. Our existing customers will greatly benefit from this combination, and together with Ivanti, we have a more comprehensive solution to help organizations solve the growing problem of IT complexity.”
This acquisition is Ivanti’s 10th in five years and second under its new brand name. Terms of the deal were be disclosed. Ivanti is backed by Clearlake Capital Group, a Santa Monica, California-based private investment firm founded in 2006.
