Deloitte took another step today in building on its position as one of the leading providers of Identity & Access Management (IAM) services and solutions by announcing its acquisition of certain assets of Iditarod Systems, Inc., an identity & access management consulting firm based in McLean, Virginia.

"The addition of Iditarod's resources and talent reinforces our position as a leading IAM systems integrator and expands our already broad footprint as a provider of security and privacy services. This acquisition helps us scale our service delivery capabilities and enhances our ability to provide our clients with an even more comprehensive range of IAM solutions," explained Christopher Lee, national leader of Deloitte's Security & Privacy Services practice.

Established in 2002, Iditarod serves a number of Fortune 500 clients, in the consumer business, diversified financial services, and telecommunications industries. "Iditarod has built a very successful presence and a strong reputation as an IAM systems integrator. We were particularly attracted to the high quality of their team. Their culture, capabilities and business strategy align very closely with ours," said Lee.

"Deep talent and specific skill sets within the IAM space are hard to find in the market today," said Mark Ford, national leader of Deloitte's IAM service offering. "With the need for IAM solutions expanding quickly, we are responding to market demand for top notch, experienced integration capabilities. We believe that the addition of the talent, knowledge, skills and abilities of the professionals at Iditarod, combined with their commitment to client satisfaction will reinforce Deloitte's position as a leader in this market, and bring to bear a new depth of talent and resources in the marketplace."

One of Iditarod's founders, John Repetti, will join Deloitte in its national IAM Center of Excellence. Iditarod's team will continue to work under Repetti's direction to deliver services and solutions to their existing clients as well as Deloitte & Touche's portfolio of client relationships.
