Accenture fights evolving cyber threats with new FusionX incident response

News: The company launched new FusionX IR services built on an adversary- and threat-focused approach.

By CBR Staff Writer

Accenture has launched the new FusionX incident response (IR) service globally to help clients prepare and respond to cyberattacks.

FusionX, part of Accenture Security, offers cyber attack simulation, threat modeling, cyber investigations, and security risk advisory services.

The new services, which have been delivered by IR specialists, are built on an adversary and threat-focused approach.

They include emergency incident response and continuous incident response services.

A specialised team will assess the scope of the breach and offer recommendations for remediation.

Incident response readiness will be provided to prepare and respond as required. The FusionX global, 24/7 operations centre will offer remote support.

Accenture claims that FusionX is prepared to help its customers with the highest level digital forensics and IR capabilities, regardless of scale, scope and complexity.

FusionX chief technology officer and Accenture Security managing director Tom Parker said: “Incident response is a problem for which no silver bullet exists. We are faced by a growing number of threat actors, each with their own unique techniques, means and objectives, and each requiring yet another unique approach of defense.

“We’ve built our incident response services to directly address this challenge by knowing the enemy and continually innovating and evolving, just like our cyber adversaries.”

Accenture said the investment in the FusionX incident response service is part of its commitment to security.

The company recently acquired privately-held Israeli cybersecurity firm Maglan and made a minority investment in cybersecurity software solutions provider Endgame.
