Subject to government approvals.

Northrop Grumman has made a play for Canberra firm M5 Network Security for an undisclosed sum.

The US-based security giant said today that the acquisition would close "later this year ... subject to Australian government review".

It looked at M5 as a way to enhance the cybersecurity and secure mobile communications advisory it could give to Northrop's Australian customer base.

Likewise, M5 said it saw benefits in being part of a larger global firm.

Northrop last year inked $10 million worth of IT deals with the Australian Government.
