EY has been named as a cybersecurity market segment leader in ALM Intelligence’s Pacesetter Research: Cybersecurity Services 2020 (pdf).

ALM analyzed and profiled 18 market leading organizations across four different market segments: legal, insurance, management consulting and technology. EY was evaluated and named a Pacesetter in the management consulting service provider category. In particular, the report called out EY for its Security by Design approach and its business model to provide predictive, proactive and reactive cybersecurity services. The EY ecosystem delivery strengths were cited as a key differentiator. 

Kris Lovejoy, EY Global Consulting Cybersecurity Leader, says:

“The cybersecurity landscape is in a constant state of change. Organizations must increasingly rely on new and disruptive technology to grow and differentiate themselves in this evolving marketplace. Those that lack effective security measures to help manage this change face breaking the trust of their customers and stakeholders, while exposing themselves to ever-increasing risk. A Security by Design approach infuses cybersecurity, privacy and business resilience into every part of an organization and ecosystem.”

The report also noted that one of the strongest capabilities of EY is its ability to drive innovative solutions, especially by using emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning that support the delivery of consulting services and are built into managed services platforms, such as cybersecurity-as-a-service.

Liz DeVito, Associate Director, Management Consulting Research, ALM, says:

“The global reach and depth of EY capabilities across management consulting, risk advisory and technology services combine in Security by Design to deliver client impact and tangible results. EY also stands out for its ability to create value from ecosystem relationships, such as managed services that can be customized to the client’s business and cybersecurity strategies.”
