Accountor is the largest financial management and payroll processing services organization in the Nordics, headquartered in Finland and operating in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Russia, and Ukraine. Their mission is to help customers realize the possibilities of modern technology and digitalization in their everyday work through innovative software and services.
The Accountor Group has expanded significantly in recent years through organic growth and a number of strategic mergers and acquisitions. This growth has driven an increased digital presence on the Internet, creating a challenge for the security team tasked with identifying, understanding, and defending Accountor’s digital footprint.
Accountor evaluated the market for solutions that could help them better understand and protect their Internet-exposed assets. The evaluation was based on a number of critical requirements, including centralized visibility and control, easy monitoring, and data currency. They concluded that RiskIQ’s offerings addressed these requirements by providing a single pane of glass through which they could view an inventory of Accountor’s Internet discoverable assets and services with complete visibility. These high-level dashboards offer all levels of detail.
In addition, Accountor valued RiskIQ’s data accuracy and currency, which enabled them to quickly identify and highlight changes made to their footprint. Additionally, RiskIQ’s licensing model was suitable when considering the size of their digital presence while allowing them to address any future scaling challenges.

Assets can be tagged by organizational structure to provide relevant asset views for both group and subsidiary teams.
RiskIQ External Threats®
Brand security across the Internet. RiskIQ detects the appearance of brand-infringing domains, brand infringing mobile apps in over 160 app stores, brand infringing social media accounts across the major social media platforms and phishing sites leveraging Accountor’s brands.
