Accenture Federal Services and Google Public Sector Launch Cybersecurity Center of Excellence
Expanded Alliance Introduces Mandiant Threat Intelligence into Accenture Federal Services’ Cyber Solutions
ARLINGTON, Va.; October 17, 2023 – Accenture Federal Services and Google Public Sector today announced the launch of a new Cybersecurity Center of Excellence to help U.S. federal agencies rapidly detect and respond to increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks. The Cybersecurity Center of Excellence will be powered by the front line threat intelligence of Mandiant, and Accenture Federal Services’ full spectrum cybersecurity services.
The Cybersecurity Center of Excellence is part of an expanded alliance to bring together Mandiant’s Threat Intelligence platform and Accenture Federal Services’ human-centered cybersecurity services for federal agency clients where they operate—at the edge, in datacenters, and in the cloud. Accenture Federal Services will also introduce Google Cloud’s Security AI Workbench and generative AI capabilities into its integrated cybersecurity services to help federal agencies detect threats sooner and respond more quickly.
John Goodman, Accenture Federal Services CEO
“Today’s federal missions demand next-generation cybersecurity solutions that can pre-empt and detect threats and assure the reliability of our nation’s critical systems,” said John Goodman, CEO of Accenture Federal Services. “We look forward to innovating with Google to create the solutions that our clients need to be confident in their cyber readiness and resilience.”
“The combination of Mandiant threat intelligence and Google Cloud’s AI-powered security tools can help federal agencies stay ahead of sophisticated cyberattacks and protect their most sensitive data,” said Karen Dahut, CEO of Google Public Sector. “Our expanded alliance with Accenture Federal Services will provide the technology and professional expertise that agencies need to mitigate vulnerabilities and quickly respond to threats and breaches.”
Accenture and Google Cloud have partnered together on a global basis since 2018 to help organizations build a strong digital core by combining Accenture’s services expertise with the power of Google Cloud’s data analytics, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity technology.
