Founders Harald and Hart Will launched ACL back in 1987 – a time when floppy disks were the height of technology, gas was only 89 cents per gallon, and President Reagan famously demanded “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”

Over the years ACL has evolved from “the analytics company” into an analyst-recognized risk management, compliance, and audit solution that unites all of these teams to a single platform.

And—to continue to evolve their products they acquired New Jersey’s Rsam earlier this year.

During all this evolution and growth, ACL stuck with their brand. But today, they announced a big change.

ACL is now Galvanize.

Galvanize has two meanings that immediately spoke to us – to shock or excite into taking action, or to coat with a protective layer.

Galvanize tells our story. It communicates the protection that our integrated governance software solutions bring to security, risk management, compliance, and audit professionals. Galvanize positions us firmly in the tech industry to potential recruits and moves us forward from being “the analytics company.”
