Under the partnership, BAE Systems, a company with unparalleled
experience managing the cloud complexities that arise during cloud
migrations, will integrate Flexera's leading asset and license
management tools into its scalable, hybrid cloud environment for
government. The federated secure cloud, developed
by BAE Systems and Dell EMC
, is designed from the ground up to meet
mission needs and security requirements for any U.S. Intelligence
Community, Department of Defense (DoD), or federal/civilian government
organization.

"With our federated
secure cloud
, we're helping government agencies rethink how they
share data, analyze information, and collaborate across their
enterprises real-time while remaining consistent with strict governance
and security requirements," said Peder Jungck, vice president and
general manager of BAE Systems' Intelligence Solutions business. "It's
only natural that we'd partner with Flexera – a company reimagining how
government IT assets and software licenses are bought, sold, managed,
and secured."

Flexera's rich technology asset data, automation capabilities, and
analytics will add a new dimension to the complexities of software
licensing in a federated secure cloud. It will empower adopters to get
the most out of their IT investments.

"Together with BAE Systems, we are providing government agencies with a
secure mission-ready cloud that arrives fully-embedded with the tools
necessary to mitigate the complicated and potentially costly hardware
and software license management challenges many agencies fear when
moving to cloud environments," said Cindy Grogan, vice president of
Global Alliances at Flexera.

The federated secure cloud has the flexibility to operate seamlessly on
any Microsoft Azure, AWS or on-premise cloud system, yet can be
customized to support any government organization transitioning to a
secure hybrid cloud environment – to include smaller forward-operating
units.

BAE Systems delivers a broad range of solutions and services enabling
militaries and governments to successfully carryout their missions. The
company provides large-scale systems engineering, integration, and
sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains.
BAE Systems takes pride in its support of national security and those
who serve.
