BATM Advanced Communications Limited has received a $3 million cyber security order. According to the company, delivery will be completed within six months. The customer, who the company has not named, is a government defense department.

As we ramp up delivery under our existing orders and continue to receive new orders for our best-in-class cyber solution, we remain very confident in the prospects for this business and we look forward to reporting further progress.”

Enterprise Times: Why does this matter?
To many, a $3 million order might not seem much, especially in terms of government contracts. However, this is not an isolated order for this customer. It is an ongoing order and comes at a time when governments have seen attacks on the telecom and network infrastructures soar.
BATM has not commented on the client or on the specifics of the order, which makes sense. However, that it is an ongoing customer will help it attract other key government departments.
