Accenture, the global consultancy, said it entered into an agreement with Endgame to integrate its cybersecurity software and technology into Accenture’s cyber defense services. Accenture also said it has taken an equity position in Endgame, which is a 2010 graduate of the Advanced Technology Development Center’s (ATDC) Signature program. Terms of the investment were not disclosed.
Accenture will resell Endgame’s solutions as part of its cyber defense services portfolio, which includes strategy, transformation, managed security services, and automated threat intelligence, among other offerings.
“Endgame’s alliance with Accenture is transformative for the cybersecurity industry,” said Nate Fick, Endgame’s CEO. “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.”
Endgame will allow Accenture to quickly detect malicious behaviors on host systems, and block and remove adversaries at the earliest stages. Accenture’s clients will benefit through uninterrupted protection, early and fast detection and precision responses to threats.
“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 of Accenture Analytics.
“Endgame has a rich and proven reputation of intercepting the most sophisticated of adversaries-in-motion for the U.S. 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.”
