Eliminate threats in real time

Cyber Resilience means designing enterprise assets to be difficult to attack, minimizing the potential loss when attacked, and continuously delivering capabilities regardless of what happens.

The old security model focused on reacting. The new model of resilience places greater emphasis on anticipating threats and ensuring continuity of operations. As threat vectors expand, agencies need to adopt the right frameworks and implement comprehensive capabilities that keep them on offense and bad actors off-balance. Using advanced cyber defense, applied cyber solutions, and managed security services, Accenture provides the end-to-end protection agencies demand.

We use artificial intelligence, machine learning, advanced analytics, and real-time threat intelligence to ensure a proactive defense posture. We combine scalable cloud solutions, data-centric security models, DevSecOps practices, and Extended Detection and Response solutions offering cost-effective, full attack chain visibility.

The State of Cyber Resilience report identifies best practices of federal leaders that outperform their peers in defending against cyberattacks.
