(Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.London’s Heathrow airport has deployed a system designed to block drones entering its airspace following a string of recent attempts that threatened Europe’s busiest travel hub.The airport, classified as a flight restriction zone by authorities, is now using a product manufactured by France’s Thales SA to detect and identify drones. The French company declined Tuesday to detail the contract’s value or the precise specification being used at Heathrow.Illegal drones are a growing problem for airports, utilities and factories. While their use is often meant to be disruptive -- when used for example by activists -- or for surveillance, they have recently been used in destructive attacks in Saudi Arabia. Companies like Thales have sought to increase their use beyond military solutions to seize market opportunities.Heathrow chose a holographic radar system developed by Aveillant Ltd., a Cambridge, England company acquired by Thales in 2017. Its technology is now part of the French defense contractor’s anti-drone solution, EagleShield.The radar system is also used at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport. It can detect drones as far as 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) away in all directions, according to Aveillant’s website. Appropriate countermeasures can then be deployed.Representatives for Thales wouldn’t say what Heathrow planned to use as a countermeasure, but said drone-disabling technology was not part of its contract with the airport. A spokesman for Heathrow declined to comment.Away from transit hubs, common solutions include the use of radio waves to jam the signal used by a pilot to control a drone, or take over control of the unit. Other methods include dispatching eagles or giant nets to pull craft out of the sky.In September, police in London arrested two people outside the perimeter of Heathrow after climate protesters attempted to close it with illegal drone flights. Campaigners said at least one craft was successfully launched, though departures and arrivals did continue. In Dec. 2018, flights at Gatwick airport were halted for more than a 24 hours during pre-Christmas high season following reports of drone sightings close to its runway.Read More: Drone Industry Fears Political Attack After Gatwick ShutdownTo contact the reporter on this story: Helene Fouquet in Paris at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Giles Turner at email@example.com, Nate Lanxon, Amy ThomsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

A new global study from Thales, with research from global market intelligence firm IDC, reveals that U.S. financial institutions have the highest rate of data breaches compared to other industries. In fact, nearly two thirds (62%) have experienced a breach in their history, and 41% had one occur in the last year alone. According to the 2019 Thales Data Threat Report – Financial Services Edition, U.S. financial services institutions are leading other industries when it comes to implementing digitally transformative technologies with nearly all (97%) surveyed claiming they use sensitive data within digitally transformative environments. However, the study also found that encryption rates for the U.S. organizations surveyed are 31% or less, even though sensitive financial and payment data remains an attractive target for cybercriminals.
A South African court on Friday rejected an appeal by former president Jacob Zuma that sought to prevent his prosecution on corruption charges over a $2 billion arms deal.

France wants to develop a domestic alternative to U.S. data analytics company Palantir to help it prevent terrorist attacks but will meanwhile renew its contract with the firm, a senior French intelligence official said. Palo-Alto based Palantir, which specializes in crunching and analysing large quantities of data, was hired by French intelligence services in the wake of the November 2015 Islamist militant attacks that killed 130 people in Paris.
French defence firm Thales said on Tuesday it would ask South Africa's highest court for permission to appeal an October ruling dismissing its request to have charges that it bribed former President Jacob Zuma permanently dropped. Thales is accused of agreeing to pay Zuma 500,000 rand ($34,000) annually for protection from an investigation into a $2 billion arms deal in 1999. The charges against Thales and Zuma were originally filed a decade ago but then set aside by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), paving the way for Zuma to successfully run for president in 2009.

Thales cut its 2019 revenue growth forecast on Thursday due mainly to slow sales of commercial satellites and production delays with an Australian military vehicle project. Bringing forward part of a quarterly results announcement scheduled for Oct 22, the French company reported flat nine-month revenues of 10.87 billion euros. Europe's largest defence electronics company now expects full-year revenues to grow around 1% on an organic or like-for-like basis, rather than a previous goal of around 3%.
France and Germany have signed a binding deal on arm exports control rules for jointly developed programmes, such as the tank and the warplane of the future, the two countries said on Wednesday in a statement issued after a joint cabinet meeting held in Toulouse. German curbs on arms exports to non-European Union or non-NATO countries have been a thorn in bilateral co-operation for years. Germany's SPD party, part of the ruling coalition, is particularly concerned about the trade.
Former South African president Jacob Zuma will appeal a high court decision to deny him a permanent stay of prosecution on charges related to a $2 billion arms deal, his lawyers said on Tuesday. Zuma, in office from 2009-2018, had applied for a permanent stay of prosecution for alleged fraud, racketeering and money laundering relating to the deal to buy European military hardware for South Africa's armed forces in the 1990s. On Friday the Pietermaritzburg High Court dismissed the application by Zuma and his co-accused, French arms company Thales.

A new global study from Thales, with research from the Ponemon Institute, has exposed an increasing disparity between the rapid growth of data stored in the cloud and an organization’s approach to cloud security. Although nearly half (48%) of corporate data is stored in the cloud, only a third (32%) of organizations admit they employ a security-first approach to data storage in the cloud. Surveying over 3,000 IT and IT security practitioners in Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, the research found that only one in three (31%) organizations believe that protecting data in the cloud is their own responsibility.
