Global defence and security company, BAE Systems, has completed its acquisition of security provider, stratsec.net.
The acquisition brings together 70 specialist cyber security staff across six locations.
Newly appointed stratsec CEO, Tim Scully, said the acquisition presented a significant step towards BAE’s global cyber security strategy.
“At a local level, BAE Systems Australia’s Cyber Support Unit (CSU), is being merged with stratsec, encouraging more research, collaboration, knowledge sharing and increasing capability between the government and business,” Scully said.
stratsec indicated it had significant growth strategy in place this year within the cyber security sector.
BAE announced its intentions to acquire stratsec in November.
stratsec has facilities in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
It supplies information security consulting and testing services to the government and commercial sector.
