FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 15 (UPI) -- QGroup, a partner of General Dynamics, has received a contract from the German military to maintain its QTrust Server security appliances.
Under the contract with the German Armed Forces, called the Bundeswehr, QGroup and General Dynamics Mission Systems will work to enhance the Bundeswehr's IT network security infrastructure.
The QTrust Server, based on General Dynamics Mission Systems' PitBull Trusted operating System, unites network security and application functions into a single appliance, and also serves as a secure gateway protecting the systems behind it.
Additional features of the QTrust Server include logging and reporting functions, and an alarm system designed to go off in the event of a cyber attack.
"Our team's unique offering and insight will strengthen the Bundeswehr's systems critical to their mission," General Dynamics Mission Systems Cyber Systems general manager Nadia Short said.
