Accenture announced that it has acquired Deja vu Secuirty, a Seattle-based cybersecurity company that specializes in security design and testing of enterprise software platforms and internet of things (IoT) technologies.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed but with this acquisition, Deja vu Security has become a part of Arlington, Va.-based Accenture Security, the office managing the professional services giant’s cyber defense offerings.

Launched in 2008, Deja vu Security offers security consulting to businesses so they can strengthen their apps from end to end by integrating security throughout the product development life cycle, the press release states.

“IoT security controls often remain an afterthought, which is why it’s critical that security is built in from the start for any new products, processes or services,” Kelly Bissell, senior managing director of Accenture Security, said in a statement. “Deja vu Security’s team of innovative specialists brings considerable technical cybersecurity skills, making them a strong strategic fit.”

This announcement comes after Accenture Federal Services opened a cybersecurity center in San Antonio to offer cybersecurity-as-a-service to the Department of Defense and other government agencies. The Deja vu Security acquisition is another step Accenture is taking to scale in the cybersecurity space.
