Atos has struck a deal with NATO Communications and Data Agency (NCI Agency) to strengthen the latter’s cybersecurity abilities.
The agreement, value up to 1.2 million euros, will see Atos put in and configure mission-critical cybersecurity methods across 22 NATO bases, deepening the duo’s lengthy-standing partnership.
Notably, the new offer will require Atos to advance NATO’s two crucial cybersecurity techniques Network Intrusion Defense/Detection Procedure (NIPS) and Full Packet Seize (FPC) method.
NIPS and FPC assist NATO’s Cyber Security Centre, element of the NCI Agency, in monitoring NATO’s networks for threats and flagging cybersecurity incidents.
“As the cyber danger landscape proceeds to intensify with a myriad of new digital threats, Atos is happy to assist NATO in updating its cybersecurity systems to assure the best line of defense, eventually shielding the pursuits of the intergovernmental armed service alliance,” claimed Cyril Dujardin, SVP, head of digital security, and deputy head of big information & security at Atos.
“This refresh signifies a substantial action forwards in preserving our potential to defend and safeguard NATO’s networks,” commented Miles Knight, principal project supervisor at NCI Company.
“Experts will start off deployment at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe in September, and then break off into a few parallel groups to execute an intense timeframe of deployment in Oct,” added Knight.
