General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions announced that it has joined the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP). Under this industry partnership program, General Dynamics Fidelis will receive advanced information from Microsoft about their monthly security bulletins, allowing the team to anticipate emerging threats and provide faster and more comprehensive protection for Fidelis XPS customers.

“In today’s fight against advanced cyber adversaries, it’s important that we arm our customers with the best defense possible, and collaboration across the entire cybersecurity community is a critical part of that defense,” said Peter George, president, General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions. “Together with Microsoft we will provide our customers with the technologies and intelligence to protect their enterprise and fight the bad actors.”

By having access to detailed vulnerability information before Microsoft publically releases its security bulletins, General Dynamics Fidelis can more efficiently and effectively protect Fidelis XPS customers.

With the information shared in a secure and confidential manner to prevent it from being used maliciously, it provides protections for mutual customers during the window between the release of security updates and customers applying them to their system. This advanced protection also enables General Dynamics Fidelis to quickly address and mitigate vulnerabilities, further preventing, detecting and ultimately stopping cyberattacks across the entire threat lifecycle.

“Members of the MAPP share our passion for industry collaboration to protect a world full of Internet users,” said Jerry Bryant, senior security lead for the Microsoft Active Protections Program, Microsoft Corp. “No one company can accomplish this by itself. That is why we are working with General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions to advance and improve security.”
