Acquisition extends Ivanti’s leadership in user workspace environment management

Ivanti, a Clearlake Capital backed company and a leader in integrating and managing the IT digital workplace, today announced it has acquired RES Software, a digital workspace software company focused on improving the consumption of IT services through secure, automated workspace and identity provisioning.  

RES Software’s flagship offering addresses user environment management and identity governance across physical, virtual, and cloud environments via its converged platform. RES Software’s capabilities for bulk provisioning and de-provisioning user accounts will combine with Ivanti’s process automation to help IT organizations more effectively automate onboarding and off-boarding processes.

“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 Software expands Ivanti’s customer base while furthering its global growth. 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 CTO at RES Software. “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.”

RES Software customers can expect ongoing support for their technology investments, along with access to Ivanti’s global 24/7 support and user community. 

This acquisition is Ivanti’s tenth in five years and second under the new brand name. Terms of the deal will not be disclosed. With this acquisition, Ivanti continues to execute its strategy for supporting customers in their quest to better manage and secure their digital workplace and to operate their IT infrastructure efficiently.
