General Dynamics Completes Fidelis Buy; Lou Von Thaer Comments

General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) has completed its acquisition of Fidelis Security Systems, a provider of cybersecurity tools for real-time network visibility, analysis and control.

General Dynamics said Fidelis will become a part of its advanced information systems unit and did not disclose the value of the cash transaction.

Lou Von Thaer, president of the AIS unit, said in a release the company provides products, cyber services and incident response to enterprise and government customers for combating advanced threats and protecting networks through real-time situational awareness.

John Jolly, vice president and general manager of cyber systems for General Dynamics, told GovCon Wire last week Fidelis supplies products to address advanced persistent threats.
