Raytheon Co. and IronNet Cybersecurity have announced plans to develop cyber solutions for the defense of operational and information technology systems.
These solutions would integrate managed security services with advanced analysis and threat sharing tools, including IronNet’s collective defense platform and network traffic analysis software. The combined solutions are designed to be part of a collective defense offering for critical infrastructure and national security networks and systems.
“Protecting critical infrastructure is no longer a private sector concern, but a national security imperative,” said John DeSimone, vice president of cybersecurity and special missions at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. “This partnership offers the integration of advanced cyber products and operations experience to the global market.”
The companies jointly announced their solutions would offer hardening of OT/IT platforms to increase resiliency for systems that orchestrate sensing, control, networking and analytics.
“Considering the role Raytheon plays in securing government agencies, global businesses, and even nations, we are excited to work together as we shift the cybersecurity defense paradigm,” said retired Gen. Keith Alexander, co-CEO and founder of IronNet Cybersecurity. “We can all benefit from working together to increase the visibility we have into incoming threats, sharing that information, and defending more quickly.”
