The acquisition is Raytheon's latest step in building a complete information security portfolio to address customers' security needs, said Michael Keebaugh, president of Intelligence and Information Systems at Raytheon. He said the purchase of Telemus underscores Raytheon's continued focus on the cybersecurity market.
