Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has bought Foreground Security for an undisclosed sum as part of efforts to expand Raytheon’s footprint in the U.S. and international managed cybersecurity services markets.

The Herndon, Virginia-based network defense company has been renamed Raytheon Foreground Security and trained about 85 percent of its 165 employees on cybersecurity, Raytheon said Monday.

Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services unit, said Raytheon Foreground Security also seeks to offer a technology portfolio to multiple cyber industry segments.

Foreground works with government and commercial clients to monitor computer threats through the company’s virtual security operations center and automated threat intelligence platform.
