BAE Systems and digital communications firmÂ O2 have partnered to offer a managedÂ security service for enterprise clients to protectÂ internet-enabled devices against cyber threats.
The device-to-cloud cybersecurityÂ offering is designed to supportÂ customers’ network and processes as a stand-alone platform or in combinationÂ with the O2 Gateway integrated network,Â BAE said Tuesday.
O2 Gateway works to integrateÂ mobile, fixed and Wi-Fi networks on a single platform.
