Assuria receives cyber defence development support from BAE Systems
Assuria has secured support from BAE Systems, as part of the latter's Investment in Innovation initiative.
A UK-based cyber security solutions company, Assuria is a provider of cyber defence technologies worldwide. It said that the interest from BAE Systems will include a series of developments to further extend its capabilities in areas of critical importance to companies and governments around the world.
In addition, BAE Systems will also look to introduce solutions combining Assuria technologies with existing BAE Systems cyber security and analytics solutions.
Terry Pudwell, director and joint founder of Assuria, told SC Magazine that he felt that a major company such as BAE Systems selecting its log management solution and investing in the company in order to bring its solutions into their cyber security business is important for the industry.
“This is a strong endorsement of both Assuria the company and of the company's innovative technology and software solutions. We are delighted to be a part of BAE Systems' innovative approach to meeting the cyber security needs of companies and government agencies,” he said.
David Mullin, manager of Investment in Innovation at BAE Systems, said: “Our programme accelerates and supports the development of capabilities required in our future supply chain. We are pleased to be working with Assuria to enhance their capabilities to protect and manage cyber infrastructures.”
