IT services major Accenture has purchased cybersecurity company Innotec Security from Entelgy Group for an undisclosed sum.

The acquired firm is based in Spain and provides cybersecurity-as-a-service, cyber resilience, and cyber risk management services.

Set up in 2002, Innotec Security has its headquarters in Madrid and operations in Seville, Barcelona, and the Basque Country.

Innotec Security will bring a team of 500 people to Accenture, which expects the deal to bolster its position as the managed security services (MSS) provider in Spain.

Specifically, the cybersecurity company provides services such as cyber risk assessment, infrastructure and application security, cyber intelligence, threat simulation, detection, response, and incident management.

The clientele of Innotec Security includes major businesses that operate in Spain’s financial services, energy, logistics, healthcare, transportation, and public sectors.
