Defence PSU Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) and has signed an MoU with Globals ITES Private Ltd for co-operation in technology development, co-creation and co-innovation, joint marketing and sales, in the fields of cyberwarfare and cyber defence systems, the company said on Friday (17 February).

The MoU was signed during the Aero India 2023, which is being held at Yelahanka Air Force Station in Bengaluru.

The MoU aims at leveraging the complementary strengths and capabilities of BEL and Globals.

The two companies will work in close co-ordination, providing all the key assistance to each other for research and development as well as joint go to market for Cyber Security Solutions, BEL said in a statement.

BEL and Globals will jointly create sector-specific cyber security solutions, integrated threat management systems, modern security operations centres (SOC), and artificial intelligence (AI)-driven cyber defence systems, it said.

“This partnership with BEL comes at a crucial time when there is an exponential rise in cyber attacks globally, and as a corollary, a huge demand to protect both critical and non-critical infrastructure from cyber-attacks,” BEL CMD Bhanu Prakash Srivastava said in the statement.
