Accenture Security receives highest score in “Current Offering” category in research report
NEW YORK; Jan. 12, 2022 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a Leader in the latest Forrester Research report on global cybersecurity consulting providers, which notes that Accenture “earns credibility with tech expertise but proves it with vertical knowledge.”
The report — "The Forrester Wave™: Global Cybersecurity Consulting Providers, Q4 2021" — includes a comprehensive, 21-criterion assessment of the top 12 cybersecurity consulting providers across three high-level categories: “Current Offering”; “Strategy”; and “Market Presence.” In addition, client references and buyer feedback were factored into every criterion evaluated in the report.

According to the report, Accenture achieved the highest score in the Current Offering category, with the highest possible score in seven of the 10 sub-criteria, including contribution to cybersecurity industry, knowledge transfer to client teams, and alignment with client chief information security officer (CISO) needs.
In the report, Forrester notes that:
  • “Accenture is a valued partner for clients that know the firm can handle complex technical tasks when precise execution matters.”
  • “Accenture brings stellar delivery via skilled practitioners across complex global engagements, and client references confirm that sentiment.”
  • “CISOs seeking a partner with strong technical skills that won’t shy away from complicated deployments should examine Accenture.”
Kelly Bissell, who leads Accenture Security globally, said, “An organization’s responsibility to help secure their entire ecosystem extends across a sprawling and complex supply chain, from the wellhead to the gas pump, or from a banking system to the app on a mobile device. We are honored to be recognized by Forrester as a leader in global cybersecurity consulting. Behind this recognition is our talented team of people, who are laser focused on helping our clients secure their businesses end to end.”
Accenture Security was also positioned as a Leader in previous Forrester Wave Reports, including “The Forrester Wave™: European Managed Security Services Providers, Q3 2020,” and The Forrester Wave™: European Cybersecurity Consulting Providers, Q3 2021.”
