April 12, 2023 -- Radiant Logic announces the successful acquisition of Brainwave GRC, a leader in identity analytics. Together, the two companies will offer a first-to-market identity data platform, combining data federation and observability with analytics and prescriptive capabilities to create a complete policy information pipeline. This move is in direct response to the growing recognition that Identity-First Security relies on access to consistent, accurate identity data.

“We have co-exhibited at a few major conferences recently, and the interest from the market and from our customers has been very exciting,” says Joe Sander, Radiant Logic CEO. “Practitioners see the opportunity to use analytics to mitigate access related risks and significantly improve their identity data governance practices with the joint solution.” 

As part of the 2023 Planning Guide for Identity & Access Management (IAM), Gartner recommends that leaders “Achieve higher levels of risk-aware automation by harnessing identity data analytics.” The identity analytics and intelligence insights resulting from Radiant Logic + Brainwave’s data-driven approach will give unprecedented insight into user behavior, transforming how organizations detect cyberattacks, fraudulent activity, and lateral movement from insider threats. Together, Radiant and Brainwave provide an Identity-First Security foundation to deliver enhanced data security, reduced audit and compliance costs, and improved understanding and visibility of malicious activity. 

“In IAM, we must have visibility to identities, accounts and entitlements. We can’t manage what we don’t see. Brainwave not only provides that visibility in an easy to configure way, but also enhances that visibility with intelligent data correlation which enables correct decisions to be made,” stated Matt Chambers, Director of Identity and Access Management at a multinational financial services firm. 

“We have been thrilled with the interest in Brainwave in the North American market.” said Cyril Gollain, CEO and co-founder of Brainwave GRC. “Like Radiant Logic, we have built our reputation on customer-driven innovation and responsiveness–the synergy between our two approaches to doing business combined with our shared passion for this area will allow us to grow tremendously together in the coming years.”

Radiant Logic and Brainwave GRC are creating a joint roadmap, with plans to release further details about their shared technology later in 2023. Radiant Logic also recently announced new capabilities including first-to-market identity data observability.

Established in 2010 in France, Brainwave GRC has a strong reputation in helping companies across EMEA ensure compliance and protect their assets from fraud and cyber threats. Brainwave GRC provides essential Access Governance reports that include access risks, accounts, attestations, and out-of-the-box reports for major compliance frameworks—a common requirement in highly regulated markets.

Brainwave will maintain independent operations for the time being, while both platforms continue to be supported, invested in, and integrated over time. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
