BAE Systems plans to open a new center to design and deliver cybersecurity tools for its customers around the world as the contractor aims to make Malaysia the “global delivery hub” for its security solutions business by 2015, Malaysia Chronicle reported Wednesday.

Martin Sutherland, managing director of BAE Systems Detica, told the publication that the center will play an important role in its regional and global strategy as the firm expects to see double-digit growth in its global cybersecurity portfolio.

BAE has mainly operated in an aerospace and defense capacity over its more than 40 years of working in the country, the article said, and will look to grow its center workforce to 300 people in 2014.

“We want to work in harmony with the government and be a part of the economic transformation in the country by developing skills and talent here,” Sutherland said, according to the article.

“Malaysia has the right kind of education system and good universities,” Sutherland added. “We believe local employees are very loyal, which is important for us in terms of cost and turnover.”
