Baltimore Tech acquires CyberTrust
Baltimore Technologies last month completed its acquisition of CyberTrust
Solutions Inc., a key player in a recent initiative to help agencies exchange
sensitive data over the Internet.
CyberTrust is working with agencies on the Federal Bridge Certification
Authority project, which is designed to allow agencies to link their individual
public-key infrastructure systems. Eventually, the project will make it
possible for agencies to communicate with private-sector organizations.
Baltimore Technologies — which specializes in PKI systems, wireless
e-security solutions and cryptographic toolkits — finalized its acquisition
of CyberTrust from GTE Corp. March 28.
