Paris, 13/12/2017 – Bertin IT and Défense Conseil International have just signed a strategic partnership agreement in order to shore up their international growth.
Bertin IT is one of the French government’s long-term partners and is a leading cybersecurity and cyberdefence company. DCI, the French Ministry for Defence’s operator for transferring French military expertise to France’s allies, helps other governments implement their cyber strategies. As partner companies, Bertin IT and DCI have decided to bolster their relations in cybersecurity and cyberdefence by signing a strategic partnership agreement in order to leverage the synergies of their offerings as part of a drive to provide their clients with capability support.
This partnership will help speed up the growth strategies of both Bertin IT and DCI on the global cyberdefence and the cybersecurity markets. It will also help Bertin IT speed up implementation of its growth strategy on the military cyberdefence market. As a publisher of solutions and services, Bertin IT is involved in developing in-depth defence solutions for sensitive IT systems, the advanced multilingual processing of multi-format information for information applications, such as open-source information, Cyber Threat Intelligence and voice processing.
“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with DCI. Our two companies both strive for excellence in providing France’s allies with support in their drives to bolster their security”, says Philippe Demigné, CEO of Bertin Technologies.
“Our shared culture and the experiences we have had in defence have led to this partnership between Bertin IT and DCI. The profiles of our cyber experts and Bertin IT’s advanced cyber intelligence platforms add to the panel of services that France – under the auspices of DCI and Bertin IT – is now in a position to deliver to governments”.
“The technologies developed by Bertin IT, particularly MediaCentric, the open-source analysis application, are the perfect addition to the capability development offering that DCI can deliver to its clients – in the fields of training, practising on simulation or doctrine platforms”, adds Jean-Michel Palagos, CEO of DCI.
