Raytheon acknowledged as a leading cybersecurity company
Raytheon has placed fourth on the Cybersecurity Ventures 2018 Cybersecurity 500, a ranking of the “hottest and most innovative” startup and established cybersecurity companies.
“We offer cybersecurity solutions to our global customers by integrating our defense industry knowledge and capabilities with some of the most advanced commercial technologies,” explained Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. “This honor recognizes and confirms our unique strategy.”
In addition to expanding its international cybersecurity customer base, Raytheon’s high ranking was attributed to winning the Development, Operations and Maintenance contract awarded by the Department of Homeland Security to protect the U.S. .gov domain and the networks of more than 100 federal government agencies, state and local governments, and 16 critical infrastructure sectors vital to U.S. national security.
“Raytheon Cyber continues to impress the global cybersecurity community,” said Steve Morgan, founder and editor-in-chief of Cybersecurity Ventures. “The company’s continual expansion, key industry partnerships, thought leadership and contributions to advancing STEM education led to their placement on the 2018 edition of the Cybersecurity 500.”
