Raytheon Company is teaming up with IronNet Cybersecurity to develop cyber solutions for the defense of operational and information technology (OT/IT) systems.

These solutions would integrate security services with advanced analysis and threat sharing tools through IronNet’s collective defense platform and network traffic analysis software. As cyber anomalies are detected through IronNet’s network traffic analysis platform, alerts are generated and shared quickly, safely, and anonymously across collective defense members.

“Protecting critical infrastructure is no longer a private sector concern, but a national security imperative. We know malicious actors seek to disrupt global economies through attacks on technology systems that keep our lights on, food supplies safe, and militaries prepared. This partnership offers the integration of advanced cyber products and operations experience to the global market,” John DeSimone, vice president of Cybersecurity and Special Missions at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, said.

The idea is to develop solutions that harden OT/IT platforms and increase resiliency for systems that orchestrate sensing, control, networking, and analytics to interact with the physical world.

“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 from one that sees organizations defending alone to one that operates as a part of a collective. We can all benefit from working together to increase the visibility we have into incoming threats, sharing that information, and defending more quickly,” Gen. (Ret.) Keith Alexander, co-CEO and founder of IronNet Cybersecurity, said.

Raytheon is a technology company that specializes in defense, civil government, and cybersecurity solutions.
