Press Release

Internet 2.0’s ‘Cloaking Firewall’ product will be offered in the UK market exclusively by Leonardo

Internet 2.0 has partnered with multinational defence and security giant Leonardo to offer ‘Cloaking Firewall’ technology to the UK market. The exclusive deal means that Leonardo will be the only company authorised to provide the product in the UK market.

Cloaking Firewall is a patented technology that removes the ability of cyber attackers to find networks by hiding them from internet wide scanning. This defeats cyber reconnaissance tools used by hackers to identify and exploit networks.

Leonardo, which has an onshore workforce of around 8,000 people in the UK as part of its global presence, provides a range of cyber protection products and services to the UK Ministry of Defence as well as other government and civil clients.

While the technology has already been deployed in the commercial sector, the military grade Cloaking Internet Gateway is a tightly export controlled cyber technology. The new partnership will make the technology, originally developed in Australia, available to the United Kingdom.

Internet 2.0 is a leading Australian/USA Cyber Security company with the core focus of developing sophisticated cyber security technology. Internet 2.0’s mission is to provide the capabilities and create products to protect against cyber-attacks within the current landscape and future proof against emerging threats.

Allan Leggetter, Managing Director Cyber and Security Solutions, Leonardo UK said: “The AUKUS trilateral security pact between Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States has heralded an even closer partnership between our nations and this is one of many examples where we’re able to benefit from each other’s cutting-edge capabilities. We’re excited to be working with Internet 2.0 to bring this outstanding capability, already deployed in Australia, to the UK market.”

David Robinson, Co-Founder of Internet 2.0, said: “This partnership with Leonardo rounds out our AUKUS footprint. It is a game changer for us, because Leonardo’s substantial onshore cyber defence capability will allow them to provide network cloaking at scale inside the United Kingdom” 

Internet 2.0’s core products include Cloaking Firewall, Malcore and 5th Column. Our Advanced Practice delivers data and intelligence services.
