Raytheon Releases SureView™ 6.7 To Help Federal Agencies Comply With Insider Threat Detection Standards

Stocks in this article: RTN

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

  • Simplified 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. 
  • Enterprise 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.
  • Universal 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. 
  • Enhanced 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.
