JERUSALEM, March 27 (Reuters) - A group of Israeli companies led by state-owned defence contractor Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has won a deal worth tens of millions of dollars to establish a national cyber centre in an unnamed Latin American country.
The group will provide risk evaluation and establish an advanced monitor and defence centre against cyber-attacks, an information-sharing infrastructure, and a cyber-training program, IAI said on Monday.
IAI unit Elta Systems will oversee the project’s implementation and will be joined by Check Point Software Technologies, CyberArk, Verint, Bynet, ECI, CyberX, ClearSky, BGProtect and Safebreach.
“In light of cyber threats targeting nations and states, we are seeing a growing demand by countries to protect themselves with a holistic cyber infrastructure,” said Check Point President Amnon Bar-Lev. (Reporting by Steven Scheer, Editing by Ari Rabinovitch)
