Accenture expands security with Redcore acquisition

Thursday, 03 November, 2016

Redcore has now been completely acquired by Accenture.

The acquisition was originally announced in August 2016 and is designed to enhance Accenture’s IAM services while extending its critical cyber defence services in the Asia–Pacific region.

“In addition to a proven track record of providing cyber defence application security and Internet of Things security services, Redcore’s seasoned security practitioners bring exceptional industry knowledge to Accenture,” said Kelly Bissell, managing director at Accenture Security.

Redcore provides security services and IT service management for a wide range of clients in the telecommunications, retail and finance industries, as well as government agencies. Founded in 2010, the company has multiple offices in Australia, India, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore and employs approximately 130 security professionals.

“As the market conditions for cybersecurity continue to evolve, we are very proud to integrate with Accenture,” said Joseph Failla, co-founder of Redcore.

“Through joining forces, our combined Redcore and Accenture Security team can tap into a pool of unique resources and be optimally placed to address and overcome the pressing cybersecurity challenges facing our clients within the Asia–Pacific market.”
