Clearlake Capital-backed Ivanti is a leader in integrating and managing IT digital workspaces. RES Software’s flagship offering addresses user environment management and identity governance across physical, virtual and cloud environments via its converged platform. Ivanti says RES Software’s capabilities for bulk provisioning and de-provisioning user accounts will combine with Ivanti’s process automation in order to help IT organizations more effectively automate onboarding and off-boarding processes.

The deal will boost Ivanti’s customer base in the European market, particularly in the Benelux region, as the firm extends its existing automation capabilities to a larger pool of applications, platforms and databases, including RES Software’s over 2,500 customers.

“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.”

The acquisitions marks Ivanti’s tenth in the recent five-year period and second under its new brand name. Just over a year ago, one of the predecessor companies at Ivanti acquired RES’s direct competitor AppSense.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
