Raytheon Company Introduces SureView Suite of Cybersecurity Solutions
Apr 30 15
Raytheon Company has introduced SureView, a new suite of cybersecurity solutions. The new suite can change the way companies address cybersecurity by helping enterprises operate effectively in the face of sophisticated cyber threats. The SureView product suite uniquely combines human and machine learning to prevent insider threats, reduce the amount of time an external threat remains in an organization's network, and provide actionable intelligence that helps eliminate future attacks. The SureView product suite is built on the premise that establishing an impenetrable perimeter is impossible and organizations must be prepared to operate effectively through and emerge from cybersecurity breaches. The products within the SureView suite were developed to operate independently or can be easily integrated to provide a full spectrum of enterprise security. Raytheon's SureView product portfolio delivers end-to-end visibility across the enterprise that surpasses traditional dashboards and security alerts, enabling analysts to make decisions and take action. This broad spectrum of integrated solutions addresses a complex set of cybersecurity challenges, such as protecting against insider threats and advanced threats; verifying the integrity of system memory; and applying an analytics platform to enable contextual awareness and cyber intelligence for real-time remediation. Products within the SureView portfolio include: SureView Insider Threat that provides unprecedented visibility, rich data content and contextual awareness of user activity; SureView Threat Protection that detects zero-day attacks, including advanced persistent threats, via an open platform covering web, email and endpoints; SureView Analytics that enables rapid search and analysis of disparate databases, without requiring data reformatting, to find and deliver visualizations of hidden relationships, patterns, and anomalies; and SureView Memory Integrity that provides visibility into Linux environments to detect presence of malware in memory that may have penetrated all other defenses.
Raytheon Company Receives $20 Million DARPA Contract to Continue Hypersonic Missile Development
Apr 29 15
Raytheon Company a $20,489,714 million contract modification for the Tactical Boost Glide program. Under the TBG program, Raytheon intends to develop and demonstrate the technology to enable air-launched hypersonic boost glide systems. A majority of the work will be performed in Tucson. Once fielded, TBG could fly at speeds faster than Mach 5 and at altitudes of nearly 200,000 feet. To achieve the required speeds, the re-entry vehicles would be designed to skip across the inside of Earth's upper atmosphere before descending on their targets. The new missiles would have to withstand intense heat while remaining highly maneuverable, and would require sensor packages to engage moving or re-locatable targets.
