KPMG To Acquire Identity And Access Management Business Of Cyberinc

The auditing and consulting firm KPMG LLP on Wednesday said it has agreed to acquire the global identity and access management business of Cyberinc, providing it with additional talent for its information security consulting services.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Cyberinc, which is based in California’s Silicon Valley, is a subsidiary of Aurionpro Solutions Limited, which is headquartered in India and California.

Cyberinc’s identity and access management business includes 190 personnel that provide advisory, strategy, implementation and managed services for organizations. The business has a presence in the U.S., India, Australia and the United Kingdom.

For Cyberinc, the pending divestiture of its identity and access management business will allow it to focus on its cyber security business, which is built around its Isla malware isolation platform.

For KPMG, the deal will also bolster its cyber security capabilities.

“Cyber security remains a top risk to organizations at threats grow in scale and cyber criminals develop new ways to access protected information,” Lynne Doughtie, chairman and CEO of KPMG in the U.S., said in a statement. “KPMG’s identity and access management solutions team can assist clients, across all industries, protect their information and enable their digital strategies and growth plans.”

The deal for Cyberinc’s identity and access management business builds on KPMG’s acquisition in 2014 of the cyber security firm Qubera Solutions, which also provides identity and access management services.
