Raytheon announces partnerships to bring advanced technology to critical infrastructure cybersecurity
Agreements will provide security analytics, artificial intelligence and isolated browsers for enhanced resilience
DULLES, Va., Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) Intelligence, Information and Services business announced two partnerships to enhance cybersecurity protection for critical infrastructure systems such as electoral, financial and healthcare systems. The new agreements with Cybraics and Authentic8 bring advanced protection technologies to Raytheon's global mission partners through a Cyber as a Service subscription model.
- The partnership with Cybraics, an advanced analytics and artificial intelligence company, brings tested capabilities designed for cyber threat and anomaly detection. The Cybraics nLighten™ platform offers a unique artificial intelligence engine that rapidly learns environments and alerts security teams to threats and vulnerabilities across the spectrum. The technology protects critical infrastructure by identifying and prioritizing unknown threats.
- The alliance with Authentic8 secures users interacting on the web. Silo, from Authentic8, is a patented, secure virtual browser in the cloud designed to insulate and isolate the user from web content and attribution. Silo executes all web code in a secure remote environment while preserving full interaction with web content. When combined with its integrated policy framework and oversight capability, Silo eliminates risk on the web, allowing users to utilize internet resources and applications for critical workflows while protecting their digital environment.
"With global critical infrastructure systems under constant attack, organizations need flexible access to the most advanced technology possible to ensure resiliency," said John DeSimone, vice president of Cybersecurity and Special Missions at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Partnerships with companies like Cybraics and Authentic8 help combat these cyber threats by bringing innovative tools to our mission partners through a subscription model that delivers security faster and at a lower total cost."
"We are extremely excited about the partnership with Raytheon to use nLighten™ as a core platform to deliver artificial intelligence and Security as a Service to the Raytheon Security Operations Center, customer base and prospective new customers," said Marvin Wheeler, Co-Founder and CEO of Cybraics.
"Any cyber-related mission requires internet access – which means increased risk to the organization and more complicated management overhead," said Scott Petry, CEO and co-founder of Authentic8. "With Silo, customers never expose their environment to the web, rather, our disposable, cloud-based infrastructure takes the hit. With this Raytheon partnership we extend our reach across the global security community, benefiting from the full suite of Raytheon IIS cyber solutions to ensure our customers remain safe, compliant and effective while conducting their activity."
Cybraics is a security analytics and artificial intelligence company, focused on solving the hardest problems in cybersecurity. We have created nLighten™, a fully automated security analytics and artificial intelligence platform delivered as-a-service. The nLighten™ platform uniquely combines multiple modes of machine learning with an advanced AI engine to find unknown, advanced and insider threats, and increases the overall efficiency of security teams.

Authentic8 redefines how organizations control use of the web with Silo, its patented cloud browser. Silo creates a perfect isolation layer between the user and the web, delivering an encrypted display of the remote browser session while preventing web code from entering the environment or reaching the end device. By embedding policies into the browser - from access controls, to DLP, to compliance auditing, Silo gives IT total command and control over the web, regardless of device, network, or location of the user. Silo is built fresh at session start and destroyed at session end, ensuring that users remain secure, compliant, and anonymous online. Try Silo risk free at www.authentic8.com.
