Raytheon Company announced today its release of SureView 6.4, a host-based insider-threat protection and risk-management solution that identifies and supports investigations of user violations.
The sixth-generation SureView is used by Fortune 500 organizations, as well as major government agencies, including the Defense Information Systems Agency. Earlier this year, Raytheon’s insider-threat management solution was named by DISA as the Insider Threat Focused Observation Tool for the Department of Defense.
Some of the new features and enhancement of the SureView include:
- File discovery: SureView can now scan workstations to find stored data of interest. This capability supports the full range of analytics provided by SureView, allowing targeted policies to identify any type of sensitive information: personal protected information, intellectual property, customer contact information and more.
- Registry monitoring: SureView is now able to scan and monitor the Microsoft Windows Registry to many events of interest, such as infection by malware and unauthorized software installation.
- Windows 7 support.
- Updated server hardware: The SureView appliance now runs on the Dell R610 server for better performance.
Steve Hawkins, vice president of information security solutions at Raytheon, said “The registry monitoring feature is a huge benefit for customers. With it, SureView can now monitor malware through the registry. SureView makes it possible to quickly react to the discovery of a new malware threat by querying all the machines on your network for a specific registry entry.”
