Accenture has announced that it has taken over Deja vu Security. Deja vu Security is a research and consulting company that focuses on helping customers design, create and test Internet of Things (IoT) products in such a way that cybersecurity is already built in. Financial details of the acquisition have not been disclosed.

The acquisition was completed this month, reports CRN. Deja vu Security is now part of Accenture Security’s Cyber Defense offering. “We want to be able to help our customers to be as safe as possible in everything they do. This includes the ability to build safe and brilliant products,” said Steve Curtis, Global Leader at Communications, Media, Technology & Aerospace Cybersecurity Practice from Accenture.

“So what we want to do with the acquisition of Deja vu Security is to continue to expand our ability to help our customers secure the products that they make and that we use every day in the market.”

Takeover Deja vu Security

Deja vu Security was founded in 2011. An important reason behind the acquisition by Accenture is the Deja vu Security team, says Curtis. “When I met the founders of Deja vu Security, we had a very similar strategic understanding of the market and a vision of where we think the market is going,” says Curtis. The plan is to retain all Deja vu Security staff after the takeover.

Deja vu Security needs to further increase Accenture’s capacity and ability to help a wider range of customers. This is partly because of the headquarters of Deja vu Security, which is located in Seattle. According to Curtis, this is a ‘jealous geographic location’ which allows it to offer its services to customers who make IOT services.
