Lockheed Martin has partnered with software-as-a-service company Expanse to deploy the latter's asset management product across the former's supplier network.

Expanse said Tuesday that the Expanse Link tool has mapping features for discovering internet assets and monitoring supplier activity throughout on-premises and cloud environments.

The tool also works to detect suspicious network communications and transmit data to a web portal to help organizations address vulnerabilities and take action on their supplier networks.

“Expanse provides a one-of-a-kind global Internet perspective by continuously tracking all publicly routable assets, services, and their configuration details for organizations' traditional infrastructure, said Matt Kraning, co-founder and chief technology officer at Expanse.

Mike Gordon, chief information security officer at Lockheed, added that Expanse Link will help the company address the need to secure the defense industrial base against adversaries and malicious actors that seek to obtain intellectual property and other crucial information.

Expanse is headquartered in San Francisco and offers internet asset management tools that cover cloud and cybersecurity operations.
