Accenture Federal Services, Google Expand Cybersecurity Partnership With New Center of Excellence

Accenture Federal Services and Google have formed the Cybersecurity Center of Excellence as part of a new partnership to support U.S. federal agencies’ rapid detection and response to cyberattacks. 

The center expands the two companies’ alliance that began with the Accenture Google Cloud Business Group in 2018 and was further broadened in April. The new tie-up’s services will cater to federal government clients at the edge, in the cloud and data centers, Accenture said.   

The center will mesh AFS’ entire cybersecurity portfolio and the threat intelligence platform of Mandiant, a company Google acquired in September 2022.

Karen Dahut, Google Public Sector CEO, said the combined Mandiant-Google Cloud capabilities can mitigate federal agencies’ cyber vulnerabilities and keep them “ahead of sophisticated cyberattacks.” 

Under the new partnership, Google Cloud’s Security AI Workbench and generative AI solutions will also be introduced into AFS’ cybersecurity offerings. 

According to John Goodman, AFS CEO and a past Wash100 Award recipient, the company is looking forward to further creating with Google the new solutions government clients need “to be confident in their cyber readiness and resilience.”
