Xalient acquires Colorado-based Integral Partners
Xalient, a UK-based IT consultancy focusing on secure networking, has acquired Integral Partners, a Boulder, CO-based identity cybersecurity consulting firm.
Founded in 2013, Integral helps clients define, implement, and support their identity and access management (IAM) programs. The firm has expertise across all major IAM platforms, including SailPoint, Saviynt, CyberArk, BeyondTrust, and Okta.
Integral works with companies in a wide range of industries, including financial services, healthcare, retail, and energy. The firm has 56 employees listed on LinkedIn.
Xalient’s acquisition of Integral will add complementary capabilities in IAM consulting. The deal will also give Xalient a second US location to complement its Chicago office.
“This acquisition marks a significant milestone in Xalient’s journey,” says Sherry Vaswani, Founder and CEO at Xalient. “We are joining forces to create a unique blend of identity, security, and networking expertise in a specialist services company. We see great synergies, in terms of strengthening our position in the digital identity segment while enriching our existing offer to customers.”
Global demand for IAM strategy and solutions was boosted by a pandemic-era explosion in digital transformation. Cybersecurity consulting has since seen a drop in demand, according to a recent report by Source Global Research.
“Our shared values and ambition, combined with the complementary nature of our services, convinced us that Xalient is the perfect choice to propel Integral’s business forward,” said Scott Silver, CEO and president of Integral Partners.
Founded in 2015, Xalient provides consulting and managed services for cybersecurity, software-defined networking, and communications. The Leeds, England-based firm has more than 170 employees across offices in the UK and US.
Xalient was for the last two years named one of Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies by The Financial Times and Statista.
