SC Magazine Awards 5-Star Rating to Raytheon Oakley Systems' SureView™ Insider Threat Monitoring Solution

SureView secures highest rating for 'unsurpassed' replay capability and ease of use

SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 14, 2007 /PRNewswire/ -- SC Magazine, a leading information technology security publication, has awarded Raytheon Oakley Systems' SureView™ solution a 5-star review and its prestigious "recommended" rating in its recent analysis of data leakage prevention solutions. The 5-star overall rating is the highest awarded by SC Magazine, which examined nine solutions in its group test review.

Raytheon Oakley Systems' SureView is a comprehensive user activity monitoring solution that helps detect, prevent and resolve insider policy violations. More than just data leakage prevention, the SureView platform monitors all activity across an organization's desktops and network, including mobile and offline users, and even allows selected views into encrypted web traffic, e-mail and attachments.

SureView is the only solution that provides digital video recorder-like incident replay, which allows an organization to take targeted action on acceptable use violations and provides powerful forensic support for investigations into more serious fraud, theft and other malicious threats.

According to SC Magazine, this incident replay feature sets Raytheon Oakley's offering apart. "As a forensic evidence tool, this capability really shines," said Peter Stephenson, technology editor and author of SC Magazine's 2007 Data Leak Prevention group test report. "For accidental behavior, this function is an excellent teaching tool. For deliberate violators, this provides all of the forensic evidence you will need."

"SureView is trusted by Fortune 100 companies, key government institutions and top retailers and manufacturers worldwide," said Derek Smith, president of Raytheon Oakley Systems. "We are honored to receive this exceptional rating from SC Magazine. SureView is a key component of our customers' larger 'insider risk management' strategies."

The SC Magazine test team is composed of specialist members of the magazine staff. The publication, whose mission is to provide IT security professionals with in-depth and unbiased information, gave SureView its top 5-star or "outstanding" rating in features, ease of use, performance, and documentation.

The review team conducted rigorous independent tests on nine products in the data leak prevention category and concluded that: "The Raytheon Oakley Networks SureView appliance offers very complete extrusion prevention. If you need very strong data leakage protections with powerful forensics, this is the product for you. For its unique approach to forensics, we designate this product Recommended."
