US-based protective intelligence software provider Ontic has acquired SIGMA Threat Management Associates (SIGMA), the company said.

The acquisition builds on the companies' successful partnership integrating SIGMA's precedent-setting threat assessment protocols and their subject matter expertise with Ontic's ground-breaking protective intelligence technology platform and enhances its ability to scale its Fortune 500 business, education and government offerings.

Founded by CEO Dr. Marisa Randazzo, an internationally renowned expert on targeted violence, threat assessment, and protective intelligence investigations for the prevention of school shootings, workplace violence and other targeted attacks, SIGMA provides threat assessment and violence prevention services to businesses, educational and community institutions, security professionals, and prominent individuals and family offices.

As part of the acquisition, Dr. Randazzo becomes executive director for the Ontic Center of Excellence, reporting to Tom Kopecky, Chief Strategy officer.

The Center of Excellence will collaborate with the Ontic Center for Protective Intelligence, which is helmed by counterterrorism expert, former special agent and New York Times best-selling author Fred Burton.

Dr. Randazzo and her team will manage strategic consulting and services to support Ontic clients in developing threat assessment protocols that help them coordinate their protective intelligence programs.

Ontic is the first protective intelligence software company to digitally transform how Fortune 500 and emerging enterprises proactively address physical threat management to protect employees, customers and assets.

Ontic's SaaS-based platform collects and connects threat indicators to provide a comprehensive view of potential threats while surfacing critical knowledge so companies can assess and action more to maintain business continuity and reduce financial impact.

Ontic also provides strategic consulting, multidimensional services, education and thought leadership for safety and security professionals at major corporations via its Center for Protective Intelligence.
