Northrop Grumman has opened a fresh cyber facility in Gloucestershire, U.K., with the goal of helping customers in the country and other parts of Europe to combat cyber threats.
The company’s nearly 100 cyber employees will collaborate at the new cyber hub to develop big data analytics, network defense, mobility, biometrics, high-speed processing and full-spectrum cyber services, Northrop Grumman said Tuesday.
Andrew Tyler, chief executive of Northrop Grumman Europe, said the new facility would help industry, customers, partners and academia to address “some of the challenges of today’s complex and highly dynamic threat environment.”
“This new facility represents an important resource for Northrop Grumman and our cyber customers in the U.K. and significantly enhances the range of U.K.-based expertise and capabilities that we can offer,” added Tyler.
The facility will accommodate Northrop’s advanced cyber technology center, a global cyber collaboration program the company launched in November 2014.
