IT service provider Devoteam has taken over sector partner Paradigmo to strengthen its cybersecurity services. Devoteam Paradigmo is now a division of Devoteam that will focus on Paradigmo’s core expertise: identity and access management.
Olivier Naveau, founder and CEO of Paradigmo, is head of the new division. The company’s eleven employees are also joining the department.
Paradigmo was founded in 2004 and last year achieved a turnover of €2.2 million. The company works for the government, financial institutions, in the healthcare sector and automotive industry. Paradigmo’s customers include the Federal Public Services for Policy and Support, Finance, Justice and Mobility, the Wallonia Public Service (SPW), Belfius, Ethias, Euroclear, Generali, KBC, NGA Human Resources, and abroad: Staples, ScanPlus and CloudPay. Paradigmo uses Brainwave and ForgeRock software for its customers, as well as RockKit which it has developed itself.
Growth in Identity & Access Management
‘Devoteam Paradigmo will work for our whole group,’ says Geert Stragier, Regional Director Belgium & Luxembourg at Devoteam. ‘We operate in seventeen countries where we supervise large organisations in their digital transformation. Cybersecurity is gaining in importance, partly thanks to the GDPR and Internet of Things. Security fits in with our growth strategy ‘Scale 2020’, and Devoteam Paradigmo will provide additional growth. Market research company Gartner predicts growth of 10% in Identity & Access Management this year.’
Among other things, Identity & Access Management ensures that the right people have access to the information and applications they need and are entitled to at the right time and for the right reasons.
‘Security is essential in the digital transformation of governments and companies,’ says Olivier Naveau. ‘This acquisition and new division are good news for Devoteam and Paradigmo, and especially for both our customers.’
