Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) has invested in Israeli cyber security firm Radiflow, as part of its continuing emphasis on building capability in advanced technologies.

In a press release on 5 July, ST Engineering said the investment, the value of which was not disclosed, would enable its electronics business division to access Radiflow’s technologies.

Specifically, ST Engineering said it intends to integrate Radiflow’s detection and prevention tools into the division’s command, control, and communications capabilities. These will be used primarily for countering cyber security risks faced by critical information infrastructure, said the group.

Commenting on the investment, Ravinder Singh, the president of ST Engineering Electronics said, “With cyber security as one of our strategic growth areas, we have intensified our acquisition of niche and breakthrough cyber technologies that complement and strengthen our existing cyber security capabilities for key customers.”

The joint solution, combining Radiflow’s detection and prevention tools with ST Engineering’s SCADA product, will be demonstrated at the SITCE 2018 convention, July 9-11 2018, Singapore.
