Accenture, a global professional services powerhouse, has strategically expanded its managed security services by investing in Tenchi Security, a leading third-party cyber risk management firm based in São Paulo, Brazil.
Accenture has committed an undisclosed sum to acquire a stake in Tenchi Security. This investment is not only a financial endorsement but also a strategic partnership, as Accenture plans to integrate Tenchi’s state-of-the-art SaaS platform into its managed security services. This incorporation is aimed at bolstering organisational defences against the escalating threats in supply chain security.
Tenchi Security, with its innovative approach, offers a comprehensive SaaS platform that provides organisations with an extensive overview of their supply chain risks. This service is especially crucial in today’s interconnected business landscape, where the frequency and complexity of cyberattacks are on the rise. Tenchi’s unique methodology enables a holistic assessment of an organisation’s cyber risk profile, setting it apart from other providers in the market.
Echoing this sentiment, Tenchi Security CEO Felipe Boucas said, “While there is a growing awareness of the need to manage cybersecurity risks across a company’s supply chain, there is a lack of verified, integrated and continuous data and effective remediation. With Accenture’s deep experience in managed security services, we will help organizations build trust between their business, suppliers, and partners, while offering ways to improve upon their cybersecurity and the cyber hygiene of the ecosystem as a whole.”
