Elbit Systems Ltd. agreed to buy the cyber and intel business of Nice Systems Ltd. for about $158 million. The deal was announced just days after Bezhalel Machlis, Elbit’s chief executive officer, called the industry a priority.

The purchase of Nice’s division brings advanced cybersecurity capabilities to Elbit, according to Machlis in a filing. It will be merged with Elbit's recently created subsidiary, Cyberbit Ltd. Nice, also based in Israel, has offices in cities across the U.S., including Atlanta, Denver, New York and Paramus, New Jersey.
