GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 16, 2015 – Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] announced the addition of Radware, a global leader of application delivery and security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, to the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance.
“Prior to joining the Alliance roster, we worked with Radware to share best practices and develop ways to address growing cyber threats,” said Jeff Laskowski, manager of the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance. “The addition of Radware could not have come at a better time, as we continue to expand our global footprint and position the Alliance as an advocate for information sharing and collaboration.”
Formed to create an environment where leading technology providers can collaborate, combine strengths and share best practices, the Lockheed Martin Cyber Security Alliance identifies and implements solutions that help provide early threat detection and protection to solve customers’ growing cybersecurity needs and meet future challenges.
