Cyber attacks today affect all sectors, especially those with high added value, including aeronautics. All organizations are threatened by the risk of intrusion into their systems by viruses or malwares; with these weapons, attackers can alter the data transmitted, steal confidential information or disrupt the activity of their target.

Given the growing number and diversity of cyber attacks, Cassidian CyberSecurity has been created to support governments, critical national infrastructures and industries in their daily fight against cyber threats. Cassidian CyberSecurity's expert teams are based in France, the UK and Germany where they work closely with the respective government authorities in order to put in place dynamic solutions needed to detect and combat these threats.

Cassidian CyberSecurity has developed a comprehensive approach. Combining high-level human expertise with innovative security solutions and services to effectively combat the attacks, this approach comprises seven steps ranging from awareness raising to post-recovery remote-monitoring.

On the occasion of Paris Air Show, Cassidian CyberSecurity presents these tools, in particular Cymerius®, which is a key component of real-time supervision of the most sensitive networks, providing the operators with a detailed reaction plan.

Jean-Micel Orozco, CEO of Cassidian CyberSecurity declares: “Paris Air show is a major opportunity to present our cyber security competences. Cassidian CyberSecurity aims at becoming a European leader providing high grade trusted cyber security products and solutions to its customers"

To achieve this goal, the company relies on an ambitious growth strategy. On 29 April, Cassidian CyberSecurity announced the acquisition of Arkoon Network Security, one of the key players in network security, information systems protection and data confidentiality. Six months after the acquisition of Netasq, this buyout is an additional step in Cassidian CyberSecurity's growth.
