Revolutionary Security

The well-worn phrase ‘you can never have too much cybersecurity’ is true even among the largest solution providers as Accenture showed in April when it bought enterprise-class security provider Revolutionary Security for undisclosed terms.

Based outside of Philadelphia, Revolutionary Security offers breach and attack simulation testing services under the brand LiveFire, which uses real-world threats to find the holes where criminals sneak in. It works with customers in energy, manufacturing, healthcare, financial services and communications.

“The acquisition of Revolutionary Security is another demonstration of our continued commitment to invest in areas to keep our clients safe from cyber threats,” Kelly Bissell, who leads Accenture Security globally said in a statement. “Revolutionary Security’s service offerings are a perfect complement to Accenture’s portfolio, and the acquisition furthers our mission of helping clients better protect and defend their organizations across their entire ecosystem.”

It’s the latest security focused buy for Accenutre. In March, the company agreed to acquire Context Information Security. In recent years it has also bought Symantec’s Cyber Security Services, iDefense, Maglan, Redcore, Arismore and FusionX.
