CyberPoint international joins Lockheed's Cyber Security Alliance

Lockheed Martin's alliance of companies battling cyber-security threats gets a new member, CyberPoint International.

CyberPoint International has joined Lockheed Martin’s Cyber Security Alliance to collaboratively combat persistent cyber threats to government and commercial organizations.

"We know that one company or solution alone can't solve the global cyber security challenges we face and it will take collaboration, cooperation and the collective strengths of a diverse array of leading technology companies to innovate and deliver seamless solutions,” said Dr. Mark Raugas, director of CyberPoint Labs. “Becoming a partner in the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance provides those opportunities to work as a global community and solve today's most difficult challenges together.”

The Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance brings together the cyber security capabilities and technologies from market-leading companies into a collaborative environment that integrates best practices, hardware, software, and tools within its research and development facilities, the NexGen Cyber Innovation and Technology Centers. The centers are located around the world for alliance partners and customers to collaborate to create innovative solutions in cyber security.

Among the alliance members are ArcSight, Cisco, Citrix, Dell, EMC Corporation FireEye, HP, Intel, Juniper Networks, McAfee, Microsoft, NetApp, RedHat, Schneider Electric, Splunk, Symantec, Trustwave, Verizon and VMware.

"Like CyberPoint, we are focused on meeting the increasing demands of our global customers with sophisticated cyber-security solutions in places like the Middle East, where cyber-security activity is intense," said Roger Mann, managing director, Middle East, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions. "We are excited that they are bringing their experience and capabilities to further strengthen our alliance."
