Cyber Security Advisory
BAE Systems has been named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Information Security Consulting Services, Q1 2016. The report stated that BAE Systems brings “extensive business-focused context according to clients who also commend its commitment to service and client relationships.” 
The Forrester Wave™ provides evaluations of vendor products and services, using transparent methodologies to measure the players in software, hardware, and services markets. It enables professionals to make well-informed decisions by providing a detailed analysis that allows potential clients to develop shortlists according to their requirements.
Forrester senior analyst and lead author Martin Whitworth, wrote in the report:  
““BAE Systems is building upon its wide-ranging background in the defense industry and private sector, aiming to be the premier player in the security consulting marketplace. Leading with security intelligence and a risk-driven approach, BAE Systems is currently working to expand its capabilities and customer base. The company brings extensive security skills and a business-focused context according to clients, who also commend its commitment to service and client relationships. BAE Systems continues to invest heavily in R&D, developing offerings through acquisition, and strengthening its business outside of Europe — especially in North America. Companies wishing to benefit from security intelligence skills honed in the defense industry, from an organization that is committed to growth, should consider BAE Systems.”
Neal Watkins, Chief Product Officer, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, said: 
“Being named a leader in the Forrester Wave™ is, in our opinion, a great endorsement of our business-focused security offering. Defining the strategy is just the first step; realising true business defence requires not just an outside-in view, but an understanding of the business impact and outcomes, wrapping a wide range of services and skills around that, and then delivering on that strategy. I’m particularly proud of receiving the second highest score around working relationships (tied) in this report, which we believe recognises our focus on developing trusted partnerships with our clients.”
The 13 service providers in the Forrester assessment, including BAE Systems, were evaluated based on the following criteria: global capabilities, large client base, sizeable revenues from consulting, advisory, and assessment, and the breadth of its security consulting services, experience, and skills.
