Partnership Ecosystem

  • As part of the business strategy, BAE Systems collaborated with Dell EMC on a federated secure cloud solution (provides flexibility to deploy to public, on-premise or hybrid cloud environments) to address the growing demand from the US intelligence community, Department of Defense, or federal/civilian government organization. This offering is further strengthened by combining the capabilities of Splunk and Flexera.

  • It also continues to invest in its SOCs as the US and the UK markets prefer procuring services of a specialist operations center for security monitoring.
  • It expanded its support for cybersecurity programs and its workforce in Augusta, Georgia by opening an innovation hub. It will tap into the local talent to build a team of experts in cloud, AI, and cybersecurity.
