Raytheon announced on 15 July that it has been awarded a contract to develop and deploy a mission-critical, advanced Cybersecurity Operations Centre and services for a country in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region.
“Raytheon’s nation-scale cybersecurity solutions are in growing demand from countries around the world as they confront today’s dynamic cyber threats.
