Accenture has acquired MNEMO Mexico to extend its capabilities in Latin America and address the growing regional demand for managed security services.

MNEMO’s portfolio includes advanced cyber defense and response capabilities, a cyber intelligence platform powered by GenAI and other advanced technologies and a 24/7/365 security operations center in Mexico City. Its client base spans multiple industries including telecommunications, banking and insurance.

This acquisition is part of Accenture’s current focus on cybersecurity. The company has also recently collaborated with Google Public Sector to launch a new Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (CoE) to help US federal agencies rapidly detect and respond to cyberattacks.

Paolo Dal Cin, lead, Accenture Security, said: “The combination of MNEMO Mexico’s managed cybersecurity services, extensive industry expertise and strong client base makes them an ideal partner to complement our existing capabilities. The addition of MNEMO Mexico’s team will help us grow our business in Mexico, expand our presence in Latin America and support our North America business.

“Together, we will help organizations build more cyber-resilient businesses and secure their digital cores, technologies and supply chains.”

Julian Garrido, general director, MNEMO Mexico, also commented: “The constantly shifting digital world is both a source of opportunity and risk, making it essential to have a well-trained and proficient cybersecurity team.

“For more than 20 years, our clients have counted on us to safeguard them against destructive cyberattacks. We are excited to join Accenture Security so we can collaborate across industries to help clients in Mexico and around the world build a secure future.”
