FusionX works with Fortune 100 organisations to help boost their security.
Accenture has acquired FusionX, a cyber security company based in Washington DC.
With the acquisition, Accenture aims to provide its clients the ability to protect, detect, and respond to sophisticated and sustained cyber attacks in a better way.
Accenture said that by combining the security company’s expertise in identifying security vulnerabilities with its own industrialised suite of security transformation and operations offerings, it will be able to help clients effectively manage risk and improve business results.
Accenture Operations group chief executive Michael Salvino said: "Even companies that have strong cyber security leadership and make wise investments can still find themselves compromised by advanced cyber threats.
"FusionX gives Accenture the critical ability to prepare our clients against the most advanced cyber adversaries.
"Accenture will continue to expand its advanced threat capabilities to help clients spot cyber security vulnerabilities, defend themselves against the most advanced cyber threats, and to respond to the inevitable breaches that do occur."
FusionX CEO Matthew Devost added: "By joining Accenture, we will be able to accelerate the expansion of our capabilities, enabling both existing FusionX and Accenture clients to continue to validate and mature their security postures, and draw from Accenture’s substantial security advisory, transformation and operations services."
