Company's fourth-place ranking driven by global business expansion and thought leadership
DULLES, Va., May 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) was ranked number four on the Cybersecurity Ventures 2018 Cybersecurity 500 that ranks the "hottest and most innovative" cybersecurity companies. The list is comprised of both start-up and more established companies.
"We offer cybersecurity solutions to our global customers by integrating our defense industry knowledge and capabilities with some of the most advanced commercial technologies," said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services.
