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.
“Today’s announcement is an exciting new chapter for Deja vu Security and our employees. Accenture’s people-focused culture and innovative mindset are core values that both companies share, and our unique capabilities complement each other perfectly. We are thrilled to be joining such a high-caliber global organization,” Deja vu Security’s CEO Adam Cecchetti said in the press release.-30-
