Forrester names Accenture as a cybersecurity consulting leader
Accenture received among the highest scores in the strategy category and demonstrated some of the strongest industry knowledge of the firms evaluated.
The report notes that "Accenture demonstrated some of the strongest industry knowledge of the firms we evaluated through its industry-specific business process models (industry value chains), with clear linkages to cybersecurity risk within business processes."
"We believe this recognition by Forrester further validates our strategic approach to cybersecurity services and the high-quality work we do on behalf of clients to help them secure their businesses end-to-end. We will continue to invest heavily in joint client innovation, our people and differentiated solutions tailored to our client’s industry needs so they can grow securely." said Paolo Dal Cin, managing director, Accenture Security lead for Europe and Latin America.
Perpetual innovation is our mantra
Cyber criminals will never stop. That’s why Accenture Security never stops innovating. So far, the count is 350 patents, issued and pending, with boundary pushing solutions that employ artificial intelligence, Blockchain, machine learning, advanced analytics, cryptography, distributed ledgers, cognitive computing and automation.
An ally for secure transformation
As companies transform digitally, their attack surface widens. This requires cybersecurity that is built-in, not added-on. Companies are already juggling too many security tools. That’s why Accenture Security bakes-in its protection, and it’s why we provide managed security services. Either way, it’s quick-start resilience that comes from the inside out, extending end-to-end, from the IoT to the development of new applications.
Forrester said it well: "A good fit"
Forrester stated, "Accenture is a good fit for chief information security officers who want to transform their security programs quickly and need both deep technical and strategy expertise."
