Raytheon, Virsec Establish Alliance To Protect Government And Critical Infrastructure From Cyberattacks

Raytheon Company announced an alliance with Virsec to bring commercial cybersecurity tools to global government and critical infrastructure customers.

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."

Trusted Execution 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 instantly detects deviations in software applications. This deterministic process blocks attacks within milliseconds, providing precise forensics at every step.

"It's time to change the equation for security and deliver better protection for our most critical infrastructure," said Atiq Raza, CEO of Virsec. "Our philosophy is simple – rather than eternally chasing elusive threats, we need to take the guess-work out of cybersecurity and stop attacks, at the application level, in real-time".
