​Accenture tightens security belt with Redcore acquisition

Consulting giant to take control of Melbourne-based Oracle, BMC Software and CA Technologies partner.

Accenture has entered into an agreement to acquire managed security specialists Redcore, in a bid to expand the consulting giant's security offerings across the region.

Based in Melbourne, Redcore specialises in providing identity and access management services (IAM), as well as security services for Cloud, network management, public key infrastructure, cyber defence, applications and the internet of things.

As an Oracle, BMC Software, and CA Technologies partner, Redcore develops holistic authentication, authorisation and administration services across a range of Cloud, web, mobile and adaptive access-management technologies.

“The acquisition of Redcore will allow us to expand our existing IAM services and security-as-a-service capabilities - along with other critical cyber defense services - while also immediately extending our leadership position in the Asia-Pacific region,” Accenture Security managing director, Kelly Bissell, said.

“Redcore has a team of seasoned security leaders who have exceptional security skills and industry knowledge.

“Together, we will be better positioned to tailor intelligent security services to organisations’ unique businesses and industries and deliver innovative solutions that help build business resilience from the inside out."

In deploying multiple large-scale cybersecurity solutions into some of the major Australian banks and government agencies, Redcore provides security services and IT service management for a wide range of clients across the finance, health, retail and telecommunications industries.

Founded in 2010, Redcore has multiple offices in Australia, India, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore and has approximately 130 security professionals.

"We are excited to become part of Accenture Security and to bring our proven deep, highly-specialised skills and services to strengthen Accenture’s IAM and other cybersecurity offerings,” Redcore co-founder, Joseph Failla, said.

"We are very proud of Redcore’s wonderful team and our achievements, and we now look forward to creating an unrivalled combined cybersecurity team and launching capabilities that will change the market.

“With Accenture’s extensive global security resources, its methodologies and its interdisciplinary security ecosystem of innovators from across the world, we will be able to rapidly advance Redcore’s capabilities and innovate leading-edge solutions for clients, as well as provide excellent opportunities and career paths for our employees."

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
