Raytheon releases SureView 6.7 to help federal agencies comply with insider threat detection standards

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.
