Raytheon releases SureView™ 6.7 to help federal agencies comply with insider
threat detection standards
Presidential memorandum outlines new national policy and minimum standards for
insider threat programs
SALT LAKE CITY, March 13, 2013
SALT LAKE CITY, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) today
announced the release of SureView™ Version 6.7 to aid federal agencies in
complying with President Barack Obama's memorandum in November aimed at
implementing an insider threat detection program to address national security
threats while protecting privacy rights.
The latest version of Raytheon's SureView offers simplified policy creation
through a new "policy wizard" that allows users to specify what information to
collect and what information not to collect to protect civil liberties and
personal privacy. It also enables integration of collected data in a central
place, such as a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system. The
data can then be analyzed with other types of collected data to further
improve security policies and procedures.
"Building on SureView's legacy of balancing insider threat response with
privacy rights protection, the 6.7 release enables federal agencies to easily
implement cyber audit programs within the established, aggressive timelines,"
said Steven K. Hawkins, vice president of Raytheon's Information Security
Solutions product line for the company's Intelligence and Information Systems
business. "Providing insider threat deterrence, detection and mitigation is
just one example of how Raytheon helps our federal and commercial partners
improve their cyber resiliency posture."
As a policy-based cyber audit solution, SureView monitors
employees'activities, including classified networks, while safeguarding
privacy and legally protected whistleblower communications. It provides
irrefutable and unambiguous attribution of end-user activity with full context
to rapidly discern malicious from benign actions.
What's New in Raytheon SureView 6.7
oSimplified Policy Management: SureView's new "Policy Workbench" provides
an intuitive environment to easily define policy-based criteria. Using the
Policy Workbench, analysts specify what behaviors to audit and what
information to collect. The granular policies developed using the Policy
Workbench help protect privacy and civil liberties. For example, analysts
can define what sensitive information not to collect, such as user
passwords, or confidential and privileged email communication.
oEnterprise Administration Enhancements: The new "Administration Workbench"
improves the management of users, agents and groups in large-scale
deployments, and supports hundreds of thousands of clients.
oUniversal SIEM Integration: SureView's alerts can now be forwarded to
Security Information and Event Management systems that support the Common
Event Format to enhance situational awareness across the enterprise.
oEnhanced Role-Based Access Controls: SureView access controls provide
role-based restrictions, allowing access only to functions required for
the role. And SureView provides self-auditing features that enable
independent oversight to prevent abuse by analysts.
