Boundary Protection and Virtual Private Networking Capability to Be Provided Under $5 Million Deal
Verizon Business will help the NATO Command, Control and Communications Agency (NC3A) strengthen NATO’s network security with a package of networking and security services.
Under a new deal valued at about $5 million covering two years and an optional one-year extension, Verizon Business through Verizon Cybertrust Security in Belgium will implement a highly resilient virtual private network for approximately 30 locations on the agency’s existing network. The company will provide secure gateways to and from the Internet as well as the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) encryption for users on the network.
NATO, a security alliance of 28 countries in North America and Europe, was created 50 years ago to fulfill the goals of the North Atlantic Treaty. The NATO C3 agency provides the alliance with consulting, command, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
