Accenture says it has formed a cyber security alliance relationship with Endgame Inc., a provider of cybersecurity software solutions to actively hunt adversaries.
Under the plan, Accenture will now integrate the Endgame’s sophisticated capabilities with Accenture’s cyber defense services. Also as part of the relationship, Accenture has also taken an equity position in Endgame but terms of the investment were not disclosed.
Under the plan, Accenture will resell Endgame’s solutions as part of its portfolio of holistic cyber defense services that include strategy, transformation, managed security services, the Accenture Cyber Intelligence Platform, automated threat intelligence, monitoring, advanced analytics and real-world adversary simulations, as well as incident response and remediation.
“As attacks become more advanced, unpredictable and targeted, traditional static defensive barriers alone have become ineffective. Organizations today require a dynamic solution that hunts for adversaries in real-time and eliminates them,” said Vikram Desai, managing director, Accenture Analytics – Security Lead. “Endgame has a rich and proven reputation of intercepting the most sophisticated of adversaries-in-motion for the US government’s defense and intelligence organizations. By adding Endgame to our ecosystem of security alliance partners, we are even better equipped to help our clients identify and eradicate malicious attacks faster and far more effectively. That means they can spend less time on threats and more time on innovation and growth.”
Nate Fick, CEO of Endgame, says that the company’s “alliance with Accenture is transformative for the cyber security industry. We look forward to working with Accenture to deliver an end-to-end security solution that enables its clients to hunt for and eliminate advanced adversaries in a perimeter-less world where previous security measures are no longer enough.”
