Protiviti Inc. (Protiviti) is a global consulting firm headquartered in Menlo Park, California that provides consulting solutions in internal audit, risk and compliance, technology, business processes, data analytics and finance.[4] It is a subsidiary under Robert Half International.

Protiviti was formed in 2002 when the Company hired more than 700 professionals who had been affiliated with the internal audit, business and technology risk consulting practice of Arthur Andersen LLP, including more than 50 individuals who had been partners of that firm. These professionals formed the base of Protiviti.[5]

Protiviti was listed on Forbes best management consulting firms in 2018 and 2019.[6][7] Protiviti has also been listed as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For by Fortune Magazine for 5 consecutive years from 2015 to 2019.[8]


In January 2019, Protiviti expanded its Middle East & North African presence by launching an office in Cairo, Egypt. The new location is the first Member Firm in North Africa, and is led by Managing Director Ashraf Fahmy, a former Deloitte partner in Egypt and with the firm's enterprise risk practice in Abu Dhabi.[9][10]

In February 2019, Protiviti added Gauteng-based internal audit and forensic services firm SekelaXabiso CA (SkX) as its first member firm in South Africa. The new firm will serve domestic firms as well as international firms looking for support to enter the South African market. The firm houses over 200 consultants, and has offices in the major financial centres of Gauteng and Durban.[11]

Protiviti's global network of member firms operate as independently owned and operated entities, but have access to the firm's vast pool of resources despite not possessing agency to act on Protiviti's behalf.

In 2006, Protiviti acquired the assets of PG Lewis & Associates, a leading national provider of Data Forensics and Cyber Security services founded in 2003 by serial technology entrepreneur, Paul G. Lewis. Financial terms were not disclosed.
