NEW YORK; Sept. 21, 2022 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a Leader in IT security services in North America and Europe in two new reports from analyst firm Everest Group.

In both reports — “Everest IT Security Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2022 — North America” and “Everest IT Security Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2022 — Europe” — Accenture is positioned as a Leader and scored the highest across both assessment dimensions: Vision & Capability; and Market Impact. Both reports note that clients have appreciated Accenture for its ability to deliver complex security engagements and its deep domain and technical expertise, and see it as a strategic partner in security.

Accenture has been positioned ahead of all 27 providers assessed in the North America report, which notes:

In the Europe report, Accenture is positioned ahead of all 28 providers assessed with Everest Group highlighting:

“It is an honor to be recognized by Everest Group as a Leader in IT security services in both North America and Europe,” said Paolo Dal Cin, who leads Accenture Security globally. “We are on a mission to help secure the world, and delivering innovative IT security services to our clients is how we hope to get there. We will continue to focus on defending against today’s cyber threats as well as the technologies that will be critical to our clients’ businesses in the future. Security is always at the forefront of our innovation strategy.”

Both reports also note that enterprises looking to invest in next-generation security will find Accenture attractive due to its extensive investments in innovation and new-age solutions such as blockchain-based identities, connected car security, and digital twin security solution — CyTwin.

Kumar Avijit, practice director, Everest Group, said, “The key to successful delivery of IT security services is creating client contextualized roadmaps, instead of measuring everything by the same yardstick. Accenture’s emphasis on converged IT/OT security and expertise on new-age cybersecurity themes and in-house talent development enables it to deliver customized, innovative IT security services. Clients have lauded Accenture’s ability to position itself as a strategic partner with strong technical and domain capabilities showcased by its IT cybersecurity services talent. These factors have contributed to its positioning as a Leader on Everest Group’s IT Security Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2022 — North America and Europe.”

Everest Group notes in both reports that enterprises will benefit from Accenture’s comprehensive solution set that cuts across security themes such as OT security, application security, cloud security, identity and access management, and zero-trust. In the United States, Accenture recently joined the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC), which now includes industrial control systems (ICS) experts.

In addition to being named a Leader in IT Security Services in North America and Europe, Accenture was positioned as a Leader and Strong Performer in the Everest PEAK Matrix® for IT Security Services 2020 report.
