“While the global pandemic slowed some things, it didn’t slow cloud migration or cloud reliance for the vast majority of organizations. As organizations work to build or advance their security postures for cloud or hybrid-cloud environments, we’re expanding and diversifying our services and solutions portfolio to help our clients continuously monitor, prevent and remediate security threats,” said Vikram Kunchala, Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber Cloud leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP.
According to Deloitte, the addition of CloudQuest’s business to its Cyber Cloud offering is expected to provide a continuous expansion for its portfolio of cloud security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) services and solutions.
“We see incredible opportunity in novel approaches that help organizations securely transform and operate while also realizing competitive advantage—and we’re continually investing to bring the most innovative solutions to our clients. Our acquisition of CloudQuest represents our profound commitment to transforming alongside our clients, competing vigorously in the market, and aggressively building out tech-enabled approaches that position Deloitte cyber as an unquestionable business enabler,” said Deborah Golden, Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber and Strategic Risk leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP.
“Joining Deloitte will enable us to expand our capabilities, helping organizations protect against the next generation of security threats, promote continued innovation and agility, and foster more efficient cloud security capabilities. This new chapter is one that my co-founders Ramesh Menon, Nishan Sathyanarayan and I always hoped to achieve, as we worked to help those in the cloud accelerate their cybersecurity efforts,” said Vijay Sarathy, co-founder and CEO of CloudQuest, Inc.
As announced, CloudQuest is Deloitte’s second cyber acquisition in 2021 – preceded by its acquisition of a cyber threat hunter Root9B, LLC (R9B) – to bolster its cyber threat hunting capabilities for clients.
