Raytheon Partners with Virsec on Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity
Monday, April 23, 2018 | Comments

Raytheon announced an alliance with Virsec to bring commercial cybersecurity tools to global government and critical infrastructure customers. Combined with Raytheon’s decades of cybersecurity defense expertise, Virsec's patented Trusted Execution technology protects networks by detecting deviations in software applications caused by cyber intrusions.

“Critical infrastructure — from the electrical grid to transportation — is under assault, and hackers are evading conventional security defenses,” said John DeSimone, vice president of cybersecurity and special missions at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Commercial tools from companies like Virsec can help bridge the gap for our global government and commercial customers and provide effective protection against the growing cyber threat."

The technology protects against attacks on critical systems that bypass conventional network security tools using advanced hacking techniques and memory exploits. Commercially available, this technology protects memory and processes in real time and detects deviations in software applications. This deterministic process blocks attacks within milliseconds, providing precise forensics.
