Lockheed Martin buys cybersecurity firm Industrial Defender

“Lockheed Martin on Wednesday announced that it would acquire a Massachusetts company that helps protect electrical grids, oil and gas pipelines and other pieces of critical infrastructure against cyberattacks. The purchase of Industrial Defender, which has more than 130 employees, is part of a move by the massive, Bethesda-based defense contractor to expand its cyber business into commercial markets as the federal government cuts defense spending. And it comes amid increased warnings that the nation’s power grid is vulnerable to attack.”
