Security Competitive Profiles
Northrop Grumman retains a strong position in the security market, providing a range of information technology (IT) integration, communication, and cybersecurity project delivery services delivered through the Information Systems business unit, especially in the United States.
The company works closely with national governments and key stakeholders to deliver systems and solutions that are large-scale, complex, and technologically advanced—highlighted by its work on securing Department of Homeland Security (DHS) IT systems and delivering the biometric IDENT1 solution to UK law enforcement agencies.
The company is trying to increase its international presence in the security market to diversify its customer base away from its current, US government-centric model.
Continued reductions in both military and security spending at a governmental level will affect the company's growth opportunities; targeting non-governmental customers is a possibility for company stability and growth.
The company's focus on the development of military and security systems, together with the divestment of nonessential business units (e.g., Northrop Grumman Maritime) has enabled it to better focus its product portfolio and enhance its key strengths.
