General Dynamics will develop automated cyber defenses for Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND). The ARMOUR project, conceived by Defence Research and Development Canada, will seek advanced solutions to protect DND networks.
“ARMOUR will integrate leading-edge network cyber assessment tools to proactively deal with cyber vulnerabilities and mitigate attacks in real time, as well as automatically generate optimized courses of action for potential future threats,” said a General Dynamic announcement. “Demonstrations will be used to validate the functionality of the resulting system.”
“Drawing on our experience developing secure defense networks for customers around the world, General Dynamics Canada will demonstrate a solution for protecting DND’s networks, helping to safeguard mission-critical information,” said David Ibbetson, vice president, General Dynamics C4 Systems – International.
