Accenture bags enterprise cybersecurity firm Revolutionary Security

High-profile and targeted cyberattacks are putting information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments around the world under critical risk. Cybersecurity service providers are aiming to enhance their critical infrastructure protection capabilities.

Software giant Accenture has recently acquired enterprise cybersecurity provider Revolutionary Security. Financial details of the transaction remained undisclosed.

The acquisition will enable Accenture Security to deliver advanced cyber defense management solutions. Also, it will offer Accenture’s clients a wider range of end-to-end solutions, helping them tackle more complex IT and OT cybersecurity challenges.

According to Accenture, many organizations apparently lack the necessary visibility to measure and handle OT cyber risks in the same way as IT risks.

The IT giant believes that Revolutionary Security’s robust experience in working with numerous organizations along with their cybersecurity expertise and technical skillset could be incredibly valuable to its clients.

The deal highlights Accenture Security’s continued commitment towards investing in areas to keep its clients safe from cyberattacks, stated Kelly Bissel, Senior Managing Director and Global Lead, Accenture Security.

Bissel seemingly believes that Revolutionary Security’s service offerings perfectly complement Accenture Security’s portfolio and the acquisition supports its goal to help clients better protect their organizations from cyberthreats across their entire ecosystem.

Becoming a part of Accenture Security will enable Revolutionary Security to deliver more complete solutions to its clients and expand its services globally, noted Revolutionary Security president and CEO Rich Mahler.
