Security Competitive Profiles - BAE Systems

BAE Systems has seen its revenue drop in recent years as the defence markets in Europe and the United States continue to weaken.

As a response to instability in the international defence markets, the company has chosen to continue the evolution of its security-centric operations: BAE Applied Intelligence (formally known as Detica).

The company continues to excel in the supply of cutting-edge cybersecurity, monitoring, and analytics solutions that are marketed to a range of governmental, critical national infrastructure (CNI), and commercial customers.

BAE also markets itself as a total systems integrator, with the ability to manage complex and large-scale information technology (IT) security and management engagements.

The company will build upon its capabilities through strategic acquisitions to access new IT and analytics market opportunities, as highlighted by its acquisitions of Norkom and SilverSky in 2011 and 2014, respectively.

Future development strategies for the firm rest on the diversification of security opportunities outside of the its traditional UK, Europe, and US markets.

About this report

Frost & Sullivan anticipates that BAE Systems Applied Intelligence will continue to diversify its international business, placing a focus on the development of cybersecurity products for critical national infrastructure customers as BAE responds to instability in the international defence market. Whilst company capabilities are expected to be organically developed, acquisitions could be made when they enable BAE Applied Intelligence to meet rapidly evolving customer demands.
