Accenture acquires Context Information Security


Accenture has acquired Context Information Security, a leading cyber defense consultancy, previously owned by parent company Babcock International Group.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in London, Context is a respected information security service provider in the U.K. and in global financial services.

The company provides high-end cyber defense, intelligence-driven red team, vulnerability research and incident response services. They have been involved in handling some of the most advanced incident response cases in the industry.
The acquisition of Context — which also has offices in Germany, the U.S. and Australia — strengthens Accenture Security’s existing portfolio and becomes part of Accenture’s cyber defense offerings. The addition of Context’s more than 250 employees will further deepen Accenture Security’s services to clients.

Context’s client base spans multiple industries including financial services, government, aerospace & defense, critical infrastructure and more. The company has played a significant role in helping government organizations, financial institutions and other clients, respond to the threat of advanced cyberattacks.

Earlier this year in January, Accenture agreed to acquire Symantec’s Cyber Security Services business, which is the latest in a series of acquisitions — including those of Deja vu Security, iDefense, Maglan, Redcore, Arismore and FusionX — that demonstrate Accenture Security’s commitment to investing, innovating and scaling its cybersecurity services for clients.
