Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has received a potential $110M contract to establish a cybersecurity operations center and provide related support services for a country in the Middle East and North Africa region.

The company said Monday it will help the unnamed country protect its critical defense systems from cyber threats through vulnerability assessments, intrusion detection, incident response, knowledge transfer, training, operational support and other cyber response services.

“Raytheon’s nation-scale cybersecurity solutions are in growing demand from countries around the world as they confront today’s dynamic cyber threats,” said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services business.

“The challenge of defending large, complex networks, platforms and infrastructure against the most extreme class of cyber threats is fully met by our core cybersecurity competencies and global experience,” added Wajsgras, a 2019 Wash100 winner.
