Wipro Acquires US Cybersecurity Firm Edgile

Indian IT services provider Wipro has reached a deal to buy US-based cybersecurity consulting firm Edgile provider for US$230 million.

Austin, Texas-based Edgile, which made $44 million in revenue for the calendar year 2020, claims that more than 30% of the Fortune 100 companies are its clients.

On its website, the company claims its technology consultants are able to “transform the perception of security into a strategic imperative for the enterprise.”

Although it is more than 20 years old, Edgile employs just 180 people. Wipro will use Edgile’s expertise to build a cybersecurity platform called CyberTransform.

The platform, Wipro says, will enable organizations to “accelerate their digital transformation and operate in virtual, digital supply chains — all in a highly secure manner.”

This is Wipro’s third acquisition in the cybersecurity space so far this year. Earlier in March, Wipro bought Capco, a technology consultancy specialized in IT security. A month later, it sealed a deal to acquire Australia-based cybersecurity provider Ampion.
