BAE Partnership Offering Free Open Source Software To Public; Leigh Palmer Comments

BAE Systems and the Open Information Security Foundation are partnering to provide open source software to the public free of charge, BAE announced Monday.

The company will provide some of its intellectual property to the foundation, said Leigh Palmer, vice president of advanced programs for BAE’s IT cybersecurity solutions business.

BAE is the first systems integrator to partner with the foundation, the company said.

OISF President Matt Jonkman said in the release that BAE’s industry experience will help the foundation provide full life-cycle support.

The Department of Homeland Security and the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command help fund the OISF, a non-profit foundation.

Some private companies also provide the foundation with funding to develop intrusion detection systems and intrusion prevention systems.
