BRANDING NEWS: Vodafone and BAE Systems sign strategic deal
Vodafone and BAE Systems have announced a strategic partnership that will provide businesses with a range of advanced communications security products and services, initially focused on mobile computing.
The five-year deal will also see BAE choose Vodafone as its preferred mobile supplier.
A new mobile security service will be launched in spring 2013, and will represent the first fruits of the new relationship.
Vittorio Colao, CEO of Vodafone Group, said: "Mobile is transforming enterprise; businesses big and small now rely on mobile services to an extent unimaginable five years ago. As a new generation of mobile-centric security risks begins to emerge, our customers are looking for our help to protect their businesses.
“Our partnership with BAE Systems will strengthen further our commitment to meet our customers' increasingly complex cyber security needs. We also look forward to working with BAE Systems as the company's communications partner."
