Wipro announced the acquisition of Edgile, a cybersecurity consulting provider that focuses on risk and compliance, information and cloud security, and digital identity.
Austin, Texas headquartered Edgile is recognized by security and risk leaders for its business-aligned cybersecurity capability, understanding of the changing regulatory environment and enabling cloud transformations that help secure the modern enterprise.
Wipro and Edgile will develop Wipro CyberTransform, an integrated suite that will help enterprises enhance boardroom governance of cybersecurity risk, invest in robust cyber strategies, and reap the value of practical security in action.
Wipro CyberTransform will enable organizations to accelerate their digital transformation and operate in virtual, digital supply chains.
“Adding Edgile’s strategic consulting capabilities and launching Wipro CyberTransform are significant milestones on our journey to becoming the trusted partner to security leaders and boardroom stakeholders,” Tony Buffomante, Senior Vice President & Global Head – Cybersecurity & Risk Services, Wipro, said.
Earlier this year, Wipro strengthened its cybersecurity business by acquiring Ampion, a provider of cybersecurity services in Australia, and the cybersecurity practice at Capco, a consultancy in the BFSI sector in Europe and the US.
Abry Partners, a private equity investor in Edgile, will exit its investment in Edgile as a result of this transaction. The transaction is expected to be completed before March 31, 2022
