“Accenture’s industry-focused approach to cyber defence and its company culture is a great fit for us. Becoming part of Accenture is an excellent opportunity for us to deliver even more value to our growing client base and we’re excited for the next steps on our journey together.”
Through the acquisition of Innotec Security, Accenture aims to add 500 cybersecurity professionals to Accenture Security’s workforce of 20,000 professionals worldwide.
Besides, the deal is expected to make Accenture Security one of the top managed security services (MSS) companies in Spain.
According to Accenture, the transaction will also advance the company’s capability to offer clients the required cybersecurity skills and expertise.
Accenture Security Spain and Portugal lead Agustín Muñoz-Grandes said: “We’re delighted to welcome Innotec Security’s talented team to Accenture Security as we build on our established market leadership in cybersecurity services.
“With the acquisition of Innotec Security, we are materially expanding our presence in Spain and adding to our robust MSS capabilities and the in-demand cybersecurity skills we offer clients both locally and globally.”
