EY has been recognized as a leader for cybersecurity consulting by ALM Intelligence in its new report, ALM Vanguard of Cybersecurity Consulting Providers.

According to the report, EY has made considerable investments in its cybersecurity capabilities to provide clients with a balanced portfolio of services. The report further notes that “the organization has been investing in its end-to-end capabilities and delivers cybersecurity services through consulting, implementation and managed services. The result is a comprehensive approach to the topic that encompasses helping the clients to protect themselves by building a ‘corporate shield,’ understand the threat landscape and detect what threats are coming and be prepared for a cybersecurity breach so that clients react appropriately and with resilience.”

Paul van Kessel, EY Global Advisory Cybersecurity Leader, says:

“This recognition reflects our commitment in the cybersecurity arena. The rapid growth of data, analytics and innovative digital technologies ensure that the pace and ferocity of cyberattacks are only going to increase. The EY approach to supporting clients with cybersecurity is not just detecting and protecting from cyber threats but going beyond to help confirm companies are prepared to resist the attacks and react in a manner that help facilitate compliance and business continuity.”

In addition, the report has named EY as the “best-in-class” provider in the capability area of enabling tools. It notes that EY tools such as ”Cybersecurity dashboard#” bring analytics, vulnerabilities and custom visualizations together, providing the client a full view of cybersecurity risks and estimated time to resolve an issue.

Laura Becker, Senior Analyst, Management Consulting Research, ALM Intelligence, says:

"Firms identified as leaders in the cybersecurity consulting space are able to guide their clients from both a business and a technology perspective. EY has been aligning its overall business objectives with the cybersecurity strategy. It also facilitates and educates companies about the process from the board and C-suite to the trenches. The organization is unique in its ability to independently execute end-to-end projects across the full spectrum of client contexts.”
