Vodafone and Accenture announce new cyber security services

Vodafone Business is teaming up with Accenture to deliver managed security services to small to medium enterprises (SME) and national corporate customers in Europe.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, organisations are conducting more business online and working to secure their supply chains. This shift has highlighted gaps between small to medium enterprises at different levels of digital readiness that are very vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Vodafone and Accenture will provide organisations that do not have the experience, time or resources to keep up with the rapidly evolving threat landscape with cyber expertise in the form of simple, pre-defined packages.

“We are committed to better support small and medium enterprises and national corporate sized businesses as they transform and ‘future ready’ their organisation,” said Vinod Kumar, CEO of Vodafone Business.

“Working with Accenture, we will leverage our combined capabilities and global experience to deliver modular security solutions, offering access to technologies that until now were only available to companies with large IT budgets. Today’s news builds upon the Vodafone V-Hub service recently announced.”

Accenture and Vodafone Business also intend to jointly invest in security innovation to help keep organisations safe as new threats emerge. The agreement is a key step forward in Vodafone Business’ strategy to offer enterprise-grade cybersecurity to businesses of all sizes.
