Why Read This Report

Forrester evaluated leading security consulting service providers across 80 criteria and found that PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Deloitte established themselves as Leaders in the security consulting services market — thanks to their breadth of current offerings and their focus on future growth areas. KPMG International established itself as the next strongest with a rich current offering and solid strategy for growth. Ernst & Young (E&Y) and IBM have good market presence and an established client base but lack the breadth of offerings of the Leaders. Accenture has a strong infrastructure background and is ideal for companies looking to develop a security infrastructure and implementation projects but is not as strong in security strategy. Wipro has a relatively new security practice with impressive growth plans that leverage its existing customer base. BT has a good vision and some good relationships that will enable growth, with success to date focused mostly in EMEA. VeriSign and Verizon Business are relatively small practices with a strong US presence and great customer satisfaction among their clients.
