BAE Systems and Bayshore Networks, Inc. announced an expansion of their partnership to provide cybersecurity solutions to defense, intelligence and critical infrastructure customers facing increasingly sophisticated adversaries and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT).
"We're pleased to expand our integration with BAE Systems to deliver the most tightly integrated next-generation firewall offering on the market," said Francis Cianfrocca, Bayshore Networks CEO. "Advanced Persistent Threats and other advanced malware attacks on government, critical infrastructure and defense networks are rampant, and require immediate resolution through highly innovative security solutions."
According to a release, under the agreement, BAE Systems will resell and distribute Bayshore's SingleKey next-generation firewall for large enterprise and government defense networks, Bayshore SCADA Firewall for critical infrastructure environments, and Bayshore's SingleView platform for real-time threat analytics and situational awareness. The agreement also enables customers to utilize BAE Systems' 24X7 technical support infrastructure and to potentially leverage BAE Systems' intellectual property to reduce the risk of introducing APT malware into their networks.
"BAE Systems and Bayshore Networks provide high-performance defense and assurance against advanced malware threats for the most sophisticated government and critical infrastructure organizations worldwide," said William C. Mabon, director of Cybersecurity Products Portfolio at BAE Systems. "This expanded partnership will help us further understand, support and protect the interests of those customers."
Bayshore Networks is a provider of firewall technology engineered to detect and block advanced malware and threats using behavioral analytics.
