Raytheon Launches Mobile Cross Domain Access Solution to Support Remote Workers
HERNDON, Va., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Government workers who require secure access to multiple sensitive networks outside of a traditional office environment can now look to Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) for help.
Raytheon's Trusted Computer Solutions business unit has released a new version of its remote access implementation solution known as Trusted Thin Client® (TTC). It will provide field agents and other remote workers a means of securely connecting to back-end networks with protection from data loss or compromise.
TTC enables users who require access to information residing on multiple sensitive networks to work from a single endpoint rather than having multiple endpoints connected to each network. Network separation protects classified or sensitive data from being compromised by advanced persistent threats or ending up in the wrong hands. The user's endpoint can be a thin client device, a virtual machine within a workstation or a virtual machine securely running TTC from a locked-down device such as an encrypted memory stick.
"As civilian, military and intelligence organizations increasingly rely on mobile solutions to fulfill their missions, cross domain technology plays an essential role in our nation's security," said Ed Hammersla, chief operating officer for Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions. "The TTC remote access implementation option ensures the same level of security as when working in the office, helping to protect sensitive and classified information."
With TTC, data and applications reside at the organization's network data center and can be accessed, viewed and changed through secure remote connectivity. The solution protects data and ensures that no evidence of what was accessed resides on the system when shut down.
