Raytheon introduces SureView 6.5 for malware detection, social network auditing

To mitigate cybersecurity risks

By CBR Staff Writer

Raytheon has introduced SureView 6.5, an endpoint information-protection offering that provides enterprises with improved abilities to audit social-networking activity, expand investigative capabilities and increase scalability.

The company said that the SureView enables organisations to mitigate cybersecurity risks by proactively auditing end-user behavior on computer endpoints for policy violations and high-risk activity.

The security offering captures policy violations, compliance incidents and malicious acts that might lead to an information breach and then replays the events in a digital video recorder-like format.

The SureView 6.5 features include:enhanced capabilities for mitigating the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), including new malware-detection capabilities; new social-networking auditing to monitor high-level activity on the top 150 social-networking websites.

Its new investigator workbench tool allows users to group and organise data, including video replay and notes, into a virtual briefcase for easy sharing and export.

Raytheon information security solutions product line vice president Steve Hawkins said that the SureView captures user activities such as accessing classified or proprietary data and tries to send it outside the firewall, and then provides a playback of that activity, enabling proactive mitigation of harmful acts.
