Accenture’s top scores were in the criteria of business and technical value, service provider roadmap, research, development and innovation management, and overall service revenue. Additionally, Accenture received among the highest scores in the event analysis and correlation: network/endpoint and application, analytics and automation, incident management process, and partnership and alliances.

With more than 7500 Security professionals and expertise in more than 40 industries, Accenture is able to quickly deliver the expertise organizations need to stay ahead of the most sophisticated cybercriminals. That’s why Accenture Security is growing at more than three times the rate of our competition – and why Accenture partners with almost 95 of the Fortune Global 100 to provide cybersecurity advice, services and technology.
