McLaren Mercedes Appoints BAE Systems Detica to Protect Against Cyber Attacks

April 23, 2013

McLaren Group, order which includes Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, ed  has today announced it has appointed BAE Systems Detica to use its market leading Detica CyberReveal security product to protect from cyber attacks.

The engagement delivers significant benefits compared to traditional network security solutions as Detica CyberReveal detects the most advanced and sophisticated threats that other security tools cannot, whilst also providing the security analysts with far more detailed context around cyber alerts than other technologies can provide. This enables Vodafone McLaren Mercedes to make more informed decisions and to optimise its resources to deliver greater operational efficiency and a more rapid response to priority threats.

Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Team Principal Martin Whitmarsh said: “Information, regardless of ownership or nature, is always at risk of compromise. Like many other organisations, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes strives to protect its information assets and our use of Detica’s cyber technology has significantly reduced that risk.”

Martin Sutherland, Managing Director, BAE Systems Detica said: “As security and cyber threats increase, we are delighted to be supporting McLaren in this critical area. We see too many companies still believing that traditional defences are enough to protect them from targeted cyber attacks. The increased prevalence of these attacks has reached a level where organisations must take positive action to protect sensitive commercial and customer information, their intellectual property and business critical systems.”
