EisnerAmper adds cybersecurity firm
As more and more Top 100 Firms add in non-CPA firms, particularly in technology and cybersecurity, EisnerAmper LLP has merged in CSAM Marketing Inc., a managed IT security services firm with offices in New York and New Jersey.
CSAM, also known as Computer Systems and Methods, was founded in 1984 and offers services such as network and server management, disaster recovery, strategic IT planning, and cloud system design and migration. Its technology partners include Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Lenovo, Datto and others. The firm’s leadership team and IT engineers are joining EisnerAmper’s Process, Risk & Technology Solutions practice.
“Prior to this, we specialized in identifying, measuring and monitoring a client’s cybersecurity risks,” said EisnerAmper partner and PRTS practice leader Jerry Ravi in a statement. “Now, with the technology and talent of CSAM, we can also provide real-time remediation services.”
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. EisnerAmper ranked No. 18 on Accounting Today’s 2019 list of the Top 100 Firms, with $360.7 million in annual revenue.
CSAM managing partner Rahul Mahna is joining EisnerAmper as a PRTS managing director.
“With EisnerAmper being a long-time leader in mitigating business risk and CSAM an innovator in risk-based technology solutions, this is the perfect union — particularly as the distinction between business advisory and cybersecurity services continues to shrink,” Mahna said in a statement. “This will enable us to take a more proactive client approach, especially considering the rapid growth of artificial intelligence and machine learning, in servicing clients’ evolving risk-mitigation needs.”
In late 2017, EisnerAmper merged in a New York accounting firm, Cohen & Schaeffer. The firm has approximately 170 partners and 1,400 employees.
