OTTAWA, September 22, 2011 — RjR Innovations announces the recent acquisition of the QSO business and the QSignOn product line from PwC. This new product line will expand the depth and breadth of RjR’s Business Management Solutions (BMS) strategies.
The QSignOn product line seamlessly integrates industry leading technologies to provide a single comprehensive solution for hard disk encryption, single sign-on (SSO) and full life-cycle management of two factor authentication devices.
The QSignOn solution provides enhanced security to all aspects of a user’s desktop, laptop and/or mobile device by enforcing strong security polices without burdening the user with complicated technology that makes it more difficult to conduct daily tasks. By streamlining the entire security process, the solution creates a single digital identity with one user name and one password that is used to properly authenticate the individual within the organization to ensure that the right people are doing the right things.
“The QSO business is a perfect fit for us. It’s easily integrated into our Business Management Solutions (BMS), complementing our other strategies while providing our clients with an enhanced consumer experience,” said Robert Beauchamp, President and CEO of RjR Innovations. “With this acquisition, we can extend the QSignOn product line to meet the market needs of areas such as Solution Mobilization and Software As A Service (SaaS) solutions. This will further reinforce our position as an industry leader in IT Service Management (ITSM) and Business Service Management (BSM) services who delivers powerful and effective strategies to organizations of all sizes.”
"We believe that the business is a much better fit within RJR Innovations," said Evan Kelly, Partner, PwC. “The QSignOn business is a tremendous asset that was not being properly exploited within PwC. It’s now much better positioned for growth and for meeting future customer needs."
