Raytheon-Websense to Build FBI’s Consolidated Virtual Network

networkTYSONS CORNER, VA, December 29, 2015 — The Justice Department has awarded a Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) subsidiary a potential $8 million contract to build a virtual network that consolidates secret and unclassified systems’ access and viewing in one screen, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

GCN reported Wednesday it is in accordance with FBI‘s Enclave Consolidation Initiative to aim for an integrated system that is cost saving and has augmented security.

According to Ward Ponn, consulting engineer and chief architect at Raytheon-Websense, the virtual network technology will enable the user to access both FBI’s Secret network and also the virtual desktop of their unclassified network in “a single pane of glass, without the use of the KVM switching device.”
