Xalient is an independent provider of consulting and managed IT services, established specifically to address the fast-growing software-defined security and networking systems market. The company’s mission is to make its clients resilient, responsive and adaptable to change by ensuring that their businesses are robust and flexible enough to cope with the demands of the future, not just the challenges of today.
Following a significant investment from BOOST&Co in 2019, the firm planned to expand its distinguished client portfolio, which already included well-known names including Kellogg’s, Hamleys and Keurig Dr Pepper.
Using technology to stay agile and secure
Xalient was founded in 2015 by current chief executive Sherry Vaswani, and the company’s swift growth has been reinforced by the calibre of its customer portfolio, several strong acquisitions and the early achievement of the information security standard ISO 27001, after a single year of operation.
“Xalient’s value lies in its ability to make business activities agile, secure and high-performing by moving clients from physical IT networks to more effective, flexible, cloud-based solutions designed specifically for today,” says principal Ryan Sorby, the head of BOOST&Co’s Manchester office, who was the lead principal on the deal.
