OK folks. You are now getting redirected to a new website with a new name, emails sent from a D6 domain, etc. We are the same company, but with a new name. Why the change and what does this mean?
This has been in the works for about a year and were waiting for the nod from the US Patent and Trademark Office to proceed. So it isn’t sudden and was carefully planned. We decided to change the name because IDanalyst was always a placeholder while we got up and running a few years back and fairly represented what our focus was – Identity. But it was never meant to be permanent mainly because that name is challenging to trademark and we knew that we were doing many more things outside of identity (but relevant) and wanted to define our brand rather than have our brand define us (and limit the perception of the work we are doing).
Has the company changed ownership or management?
No, same ownership and management.
Is the research firm changing focus?
In short, no. Anyone that knows our work knows that we have done deep research and advisory in systems outside of identity such as security audits, vulnerability policy development and assessments, privacy and systems that have relevance to identity but are not the primary focus, such as Internet of Things, Access Control, and mobile applications and distribution. We knew that we would expand beyond the identity borders and it was time to not be constrained by our name. However, continue to believe that identity is core to security and privacy and will remain a common thread in all that we do.
Does this impact existing contracts?
No, contracts will still be in place and enforceable under IDanalyst LLC.
Should I make payments to D6 Research or IDanalyst?
Either will work (for old contracts that do not reference D6 Research, pay IDanalyst).
