FTSE 100 giants Vodafone and BAE Systems yesterday announced a five- year strategic partnership to safe- guard mobile phones. The tie-up is part of BAE Systems’ push to grow its cyber and security arm BAE Systems Detica and will also help Vodafone’s business customers fight against the growing threat of cyber attacks. The initiative between the pair, Vodafone Mobile Threat Manager, launches in Spring. BAE and Vodafone aim to eventually offer a range of security systems, such as one protecting “machine to machine” interactions.
