Defense contractor Raytheon and digital communications company MetTel are teaming up to provide cybersecurity for government agencies and private companies.
“The companies will provide a range of cybersecurity offerings and support the migration from legacy technologies to ensure cybersecurity is designed into the government’s telecom infrastructure,” said a Raytheon and MetTel news release.
“This alliance is well-positioned to support the administration’s IT modernization and cybersecurity priorities, including the emerging security challenges posed by internet-connected devices, including computers, routers and security cameras.”
Among their collaborations, the two companies will build and operate Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Services for federal agencies through the GSA’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract, for which MetTel was named as a vendor in August. Raytheon will offer cybersecurity consultants for EIS. MetTel will use Raytheon’s Automated Threat Intelligence Platform.
