  • EY named best-in-class provider in ALM’s ‘enabling tools’ category

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

According to the report, EY teams excel in end-to-end cybersecurity consulting, implementation and managed services capabilities. The report highlights the organization’s investment in technology and innovation capabilities, including 65 cybersecurity centers, 19 EY wavespace™ global growth and innovation network locations, key collaborations, and an Internet of Things / operational technology (IoT / OT) security Lab. The ALM report further notes that “IoT will be a key focus area for EY professionals for embedding security and transforming business operations to provide for a new IoT/OT security function.”

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

“This recognition reflects the EY commitment in the cybersecurity arena. Cyber attacks continue to grow in both number and sophistication. Digital transformation and new technologies are exposing organizations to new vulnerabilities. The EY approach to supporting clients with cybersecurity is not just about protecting organizations from cyber threats and optimizing their cybersecurity, but going beyond to help companies put cybersecurity at the heart of their growth strategy.”

Aleksander Poniewierski, EY Global IoT Leader, says:

“Organizations today are increasingly hyper-connected with wave upon wave of new technology creating both opportunities and risks across the value chain. This explosion of connectivity, fueled by growth in IoT and organizations’ ever-expanding digital footprint, has introduced new vulnerabilities for attackers to exploit. EY teams help clients to integrate and embed security within business processes from the outset, and build a more secure working environment for all stakeholders. Security-by-design should be a key principle as emerging technologies move center stage.”

In addition, the report has named EY as a “best-in-class” provider in ALM’s ‘enabling tools’ capability category. It notes that the organization’s tools, such as the EY Cybersecurity Dashboard, combine analytics, identify vulnerabilities and custom visualizations together in one dashboard to provide clients with a broad view of their cybersecurity risk exposure and an estimate of how long it will take to resolve live issues. The dashboard incorporates artificial intelligence and other technologies to visually link client vulnerabilities with threats and help drive cybersecurity discussions at board level.

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

"In this era of rapidly-changing digital transformation, our increasingly connected, data-driven society through technologies such as IoT, OT, cloud and mobile, cybersecurity consulting has never seen greater demand – with threat risks and entry points growing exponentially. EY teams go to market with the philosophy of protect the enterprise, help optimize the cybersecurity and support growth. They also facilitate and educate companies about the process from the board and C-suite to the trenches. The organization is distinct in the ability to independently execute end-to-end projects across the broad spectrum of client contexts.”
