Fidelis said Monday that joining the Microsoft program is intended to bolster mitigation of cyber attacks and system vulnerabilities during the entire threat life cycle.
“In today’s fight against advanced cyber adversaries, it’s important that we arm our customers with the best defense possible, and collaboration across the entire cybersecurity community is a critical part of that defense,” said Peter George, president of General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions.
