Defense contractor Raytheon has released a new product aimed at diminishing cyber threats by monitoring employee social-networking activity and other actions.
Called SureView 6.5, the program supports organizations’ efforts to mitigate cybersecurity risks by proactively auditing end-user behavior on computer endpoints for policy violations and high-risk activity.
“Our customers face a daunting array of continuously evolving cyber threats – both from external actors as well as insiders,” said Steve Hawkins, vice president of Raytheon‘s Information Security Solutions. “SureView‘s enhancements were developed in response to our customers’ specific requirements to help them more effectively manage the risks associated with multiple threat vectors. SureView goes beyond data-leak protection to provide proactive information protection.”
The new product features improved capabilities for mitigating the Advanced Persistent Threat; new social-networking auditing to monitor high-level activity on 150 social-networking websites; and a New Investigator Workbench, a collaboration tool that allows users to group and organize data.
Raytheon said the new product also offers increased processing speed, both from the collector to the central database, and from the central database to the Investigator Workbench. The new search engine allows users to narrow and define searches to specific data types, all from one screen. Users can review more data in less time, quickly accessing incidents in seconds.
