Summary

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.
