Accenture announced that it has agreed to acquire the federal government services business of Endgame Inc., a provider of endpoint detection and response (EDR) cybersecurity software solutions. The federal services business provides government clients with services including cyber defense, hunt-as-a-service, red teaming and cyber operations. As part of the transaction, Accenture and Endgame have entered into an alliance where Accenture will resell Endgame's EDR platform. Deal terms were not disclosed.
It appears that Accenture is serious about bulking up its cybersecurity capabilities as this acquisition is one of several investments the company has made in cybersecurity over the past few months, including the acquisition of Defense Point Security LLC and its announcement today that it will acquire iDefense Security Intelligence Services from Verisign.
