BT is to extend its cyber security agreement with the Ministry of Defence in a deal that will see the company expand its cyber defence service. BT said work had already begun on the seven-year agreement that builds on an existing service and gives the MoD a wider and deeper defence capability across its global IT network.
BT did not disclose the value of the deal and said it would not provide details of the new capabilities it is to deliver to the MoD for security reasons. BT will now deliver and integrate a range of new capabilities for the cutting-edge service, which is designed to deter attacks, as well as respond to and recover from them.
