Ireland based professional services company Accenture has recently acquired a UK based Context Information Security company to boost its Cybersecurity platform Accenture Security on a global note. The objective of the deal is to accelerate the growth of its existing portfolio of Cyber Defense offerings.
“The acquisition deal is an excellent match for us as it combines extremely skilled professionals to provide varied services to clients across the UK and the world”, said Kelly Bissell, a Senior Management Director, Accenture.
