HOLTSVILLE, N.Y. -- Cisive, a global provider of compliance-driven human capital management and risk management solutions, today announced the acquisition of the Pre-Employment Screening (PES) division of Hong Kong based Blue Umbrella, a leading provider of due diligence research and cutting-edge third party compliance technologies.

“The acquisition of Blue Umbrella PES is a critical step in accelerating Cisive’s global expansion into Asia, EMEA, and South America,” explains James Owens, Cisive’s President and CEO. “This will give Cisive as well as Blue Umbrella the ability to better support existing global clients through localized operations and customer support. Blue Umbrella was selected because of their prominence and expertise in the background screening industry.”
