EDGE Group, one of the world’s leading advanced technology groups for defense and beyond, has expanded the scope of its existing electronic warfare and intelligence capabilities to now include secure communications under the Electronic Warfare and Cyber Technologies (EW&CT) cluster.

The cluster has seen the addition of a leading secure communications company, DIGITAL14. It also includes other entities SIGN4L and BEACON RED.

EDGE’s expanded cyber capabilities will ensure the Group’s global experience, world-leading systems and solutions, and field-proven technologies to help its customers operate effectively, securely, and decisively, ensuring they can defend their assets and operations against threats, monitor and gain intelligence on adversaries, ensure robust communications in the battlefield and security realms, and recruit and upskill the personnel required to achieve operational success.
