Boeing and Sojitz Corporation, a global trading company, have agreed to work together to offer advanced cybersecurity solutions in Japan to help protect critical government, civil and commercial information technology infrastructure.

The agreement calls for Boeing to provide advanced network and data analysis tools, cybersecurity training and simulation platforms, and network protection solutions. Boeing will provide training to support Japan’s need for more cybersecurity experts. Sojitz will contribute its Japanese market expertise, information technology professionals and strong local partnerships.
