Who We Are

CREATING A NEW, INDUSTRY LEADING STANDARD FOR SECURITY CONVERGENCE.

Digital Identity. Digital Security. Digital Trust.

At AlertEnterprise digital identity and trust are at the center of everything we do. We go to work each day with the mission to help organizations solve critical business and security challenges. We address those challenges by taking a universal digital identity for people and things, extending it across an entire enterprise in a secure, intelligent and efficient way.

Fact is, security is long overdue for a digital transformation, and we believe that the changing threat landscape requires a change to conventional thinking and a new approach. This new approach drives us to empower organizations with real-time data insights, so they can do more with less, create engaging employee experiences, increase compliance and reduce risk.

Our mission is to bring people, processes, data and technology together in a unique way to help organizations protect what matters most. We call it security convergence. And we develop game-changing security convergence solutions that deliver identity governance, access management, security intelligence and compliance validation across enterprise IT, HR, cyber and physical security environments.
