Growth, Acquisitions and Expertise Gives Mid-Market Financial Services Firms Single Source to Simplify IT Services and Drive Business Transformation
BOSTON – June 22, 2021 – Eze Castle Integration, the leader in managed services and cybersecurity for the global financial services industry, today announced it has rebranded as ECI to reflect its continued evolution and newly expanded capabilities. The company has also unveiled the biggest, broadest portfolio of managed services in the industry, including business transformation as a service. This was made possible by the successful integration of two strategic acquisitions, undertaken by ECI to keep pace with increased demand and enhance its long-held leadership position in serving mid-market financial organizations.
As a result, financial firms now have a single managed services provider (MSP) to handle all their IT requirements – one that improves stability, security, cost efficiency and productivity – enabling executives to place more emphasis on improving business performance rather than being consumed by technology issues.
“We’ve experienced rapid growth and fully integrated two recent acquisitions, broadening our capabilities and increasing the size of our global team, so it’s the right time to rebrand under the more familiar ECI,” said David Andrade, CEO of ECI. “The name is simpler, and with our full capabilities and expanded resources, we’re making IT simpler, too. There's a reason we stand out among global MSPs in financial services - and why customers with a combined $3 trillion in assets under management trust us. Now, with all our employees together under one brand and mission, we're looking forward to enhancing our success even further as we move forward.”
“ECI has made some bold moves that have paid off; not only are they the leading MSP for financial services, they’re the future in the space,” said Chris Turek, Chief Information Officer at Evercore, a longtime ECI customer. “They’re enabling financial firms to benefit from solid offerings in areas like infrastructure and security, while introducing innovative services to drive efficiency, productivity and growth, turning IT into a competitive advantage."
ECI’s portfolio was boosted by two major acquisitions in 2020. It acquired NorthOut to add a valuable combination of business-led digital strategy and modern engineering design to its core capabilities. In addition, ECI acquired Alphaserve Technologies, a global provider of managed infrastructure and digital IT services for financial and professional services, particularly known for guiding clients through digital transformations.
With the integration of the acquisitions completed, ECI’s new portfolio is broken into three pillars that cover a broad range of services, including:
- Managed Services: Cloud solutions, networking and hardware, IT support.
- Cybersecurity: Managed services for security information and event management (SIEM), operations centers, dark web monitoring, phishing and threat training, vulnerability assessments and remediation, governance and risk management, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) as a service.
- Business Transformation: Cloud, application development, DevOps, process automation, managed data services, strategic advisory, distributed workforce enablement.
