RUAG ac­quires cy­ber se­cu­rity spe­cial­ist Clear­swift


The RUAG De­fence di­vi­sion is ac­quir­ing the Bri­tish Cy­ber Se­cu­rity spe­cial­ist Clear­swift. With this ac­qui­si­tion, RUAG is mak­ing a sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in the ex­pan­sion and long-term de­vel­op­ment of its cy­ber se­cu­rity busi­ness. Clear­swift’s lead­ing prod­ucts will be a sig­nif­i­cant ad­di­tion to the RUAG De­fence Cy­ber Se­cu­rity busi­ness unit. As pre­vi­ously an­nounced, the busi­ness unit will be headed by cy­ber se­cu­rity ex­pert Di­et­mar The­len as of Jan­uary 1, 2017.

“The ac­qui­si­tion of Clear­swift ideally com­ple­ments our ex­ist­ing port­fo­lio of prod­ucts and ser­vices. By com­bin­ing our ex­per­tise in net­work de­fence with Clear­swift’s data loss pre­ven­tion and gate­way so­lu­tions we will fur­ther boost our ef­forts to make RUAG De­fence one of the lead­ing cy­ber se­cu­rity spe­cial­ists”, em­pha­sises Dr. Markus A. Zoller, CEO of the RUAG De­fence di­vi­sion. “We are aim­ing to be­come a prin­ci­pal so­lu­tion and ser­vice provider for or­gan­i­sa­tions of all sizes and across all ver­ti­cals, in­clud­ing lo­cal and na­tional gov­ern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tions, fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions and crit­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture providers. Clear­swift’s global part­ner net­work and cus­tomer base in con­junc­tion with its an­a­lyst-recog­nised so­lu­tions will play a key role in the growth of the RUAG De­fence cy­ber se­cu­rity busi­ness unit.”
