Raytheon announces availability of Trusted Mail System cross domain solution
New information sharing software allows secure exchange of emails and attachments between users on different networks
HERNDON, Va., June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions (RTCS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), today announced the general availability of its Trusted Mail System™ cross domain solution. This commercial-off-the-shelf, enterprise-class, multi-directional software enables the secure, policy-enforced exchange of emails and attachments between users on different networks, eliminating the need to switch between systems at multiple levels.
Agencies across the Department of Defense and federal government are looking for ways to increase cost efficiencies and improve productivity. Trusted Mail System improves user productivity and saves money by eliminating the need for multiple email clients for the same user. In addition, it improves security by prescreening and enforcing security policy on all email content including the size, type and number of attachments. The software requires no change to the user's desktop, making it easy to implement.
"We developed this product based on our cross domain customer's request for a 'single inbox,'" said Ed Hammersla, chief operating officer for Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions. "Not only does Trusted Mail System enhance productivity by eliminating the need for users to switch between email clients, users experience intangible benefits such as faster response, improved decision making and fewer errors. Our Trusted Mail System increases user productivity, enables cost savings and improves collaboration."
Trusted Mail System uses the widely deployed, accredited and Unified Cross Domain Management Office Baseline-listed Trusted Gateway System (TGS) as the Protection Level 4 cross domain guard component. TGS ensures that malicious data is not transferred from the low side to the high side network and that sensitive data is not inadvertently or intentionally transferred from high to low.
RTCS products are designed to enable secure access and transfer of sensitive information for government, intelligence community, civilian and corporate entities in the United States and around the globe, including 5 Eyes nations and NATO. With more than a decade-and-a-half of proven success, RTCS is the global leader in cross domain solutions. RTCS products continue to strike the right balance between information protection and information sharing.
