Essextec Expands Business Risk Services with Acquisition of ionRISK

Essextec, an IT Solutions Provider, to offer enhanced business risk mitigation solutions

ROCHELLE PARK, N.J.,  — Essextec, an IT Solutions Provider servicing the Northeast U.S., recently purchased ionRISK, a Wilmington, DE based company specializing in enterprise risk solutions. Essextec currently offers a wide range of scalable IT solutions and managed services. The acquisition of ionRISK expands the suite of services to include strategic consulting around risk, resiliency, and reputation.

With over 16 years of business risk experience, ionRISK focuses on identifying and mitigating security risks in an effort to protect organizations and their critical assets. Under Essextec’s management, ionRISK will have the ability to provide the same superior strategic solutions with expanded support to address customers’ continuing needs to improve information security and data protection for their business. Current ionRISK and Essextec clients will continue to receive the quality service for which both companies are known, but with a broader range of expertise available to them.

“Adding ionRISK as the cornerstone of our new Business Risk Services practice will allow Essextec to offer customers security solution expertise that will benefit their entire organization” says Jim Torney, Essextec’s President, of the acquisition.

Essextec’s enhanced offerings include: Security Services that address internal and external threats, compliance, design and audits; Business Continuity Consulting for continuous operations; and Cloud Managed Services specializing in personnel and service level agreements in dynamic IT environments.

Michael DaGrossa, ionRISK founder who joins Essextec as Vice President of Business Risk Services, expressed enthusiasm in the partnership, saying, “We are excited to bring our business risk expertise to Essextec and offer our customers more value and peace of mind.”
