BAE Systems expands strategic partnership with Bayshore Networks to deliver enhanced cybersecurity solutions to protect critical and safeguard the nation’s most sensitive data networks.

“We’re pleased to expand our integration with BAE Systems to deliver the most tightly integrated next-generation firewall offering on the market,” said Francis Cianfrocca, Bayshore Networks CEO. “Advanced Persistent Threats and other advanced malware attacks on government, critical infrastructure and defense networks are rampant, and require immediate resolution through highly innovative security solutions.”

Under the agreement, BAE Systems will resell and distribute Bayshore’s SingleKey™ next-generation firewall for large enterprise and government defense networks, Bayshore SCADA Firewall™ for critical infrastructure environments, and Bayshore’s SingleView™ platform for real-time threat analytics and situational awareness. The agreement also enables customers to utilize BAE Systems’ 24X7 technical support infrastructure and to potentially leverage BAE Systems’ intellectual property to reduce the risk of introducing APT malware into their networks.

“BAE Systems and Bayshore Networks provide high-performance defense and assurance against advanced malware threats for the most sophisticated government and critical infrastructure organizations worldwide,” said William C. Mabon, director of Cybersecurity Products Portfolio at BAE Systems. “This expanded partnership will help us further understand, support and protect the interests of those customers.”

BAE Systems specializes in delivering multilevel security solutions and powerful cross-domain messaging and data protection, safeguarding some of the nation’s most critical information. The expanded integration with Bayshore’s next-generation firewall product portfolio supports the industry’s need for additional protocol support, and accelerated performance for multi-gigabit networks as advanced threats and attacks continue rise in frequency and sophistication.
