Herndon, Virginia (PRWEB) September 13, 2017
10Pearls, a digital development company based in Washington D.C., has acquired ProQual-IT, an information technology services provider that specializes in biometrics and identity management. ProQual-IT's founder and CEO, James (Jim) Annulis, will be joining 10Pearls' management team, and all ProQual-IT employees will become 10Pearls team members.
“We know that identity management and biometrics will continue to be essential components of world-class digital experiences. That's why we've joined forces with ProQual-IT," said Imran Aftab, CEO of 10Pearls. “As an end-to-end digital technology services partner working on our clients' mission-critical initiatives, we consider it our responsibility to stay ahead of our clients' needs and continue to add value for them. This allows our clients to truly lean on us, so they can focus on business acceleration."
As more and more companies invest in engaging with their customers digitally, they need better ways of confirming the identity of the customer on the other side of the screen. Simultaneously, today's savvy consumers expect the businesses they patronize to offer convenient, enjoyable experiences. Identity management and biometrics let security and customer experience exist in harmony. New mechanisms for authenticating identity provide more natural, less intrusive experiences for customers without compromising security.
“The recent Equifax data breach will make already skeptical consumers even more worried about the safety of their personal information," said Aftab. “Even the largest, most mature businesses are vulnerable. If businesses want to interact with customers online, they need to establish trust. Behind every digital product, there must be a strategy to address information security."
Annulis sees the acquisition as a natural fit for both companies: “I'm very excited about joining the 10Pearls team," said Annulis. “As a combined entity, we can provide a full suite of technology services that businesses need. Together we will have a bigger impact for our clients."
