Raytheon Oakley Systems and Kazeon Partner to Offer Unprecedented Integration of eDiscovery with Insider Threat Protection

Raytheon Oakley Systems to resell Kazeon Information Server to discover and classify sensitive information

SALT LAKE CITY and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 10, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Oakley Systems, Inc., and Kazeon Systems, Inc., have partnered to integrate Raytheon Oakley's data leakage prevention, user activity monitoring, investigation and forensics capabilities with Kazeon's eDiscovery platform to provide a single solution for insider threat protection.

Raytheon Oakley Systems is a leader in insider threat protection, and Kazeon Systems is a leading provider of intelligent eDiscovery solutions.

"Joining Raytheon and Kazeon solutions provides an unprecedented electronic data discovery and insider threat protection solution that covers data at rest or in motion across the network and endpoints," said Derek Smith, president of Raytheon Oakley Systems. "Our customers are increasingly demanding electronic data discovery as part of their security portfolio. They know it's impossible to protect critical data if they don't know what it is or where it is in their enterprise."

Raytheon Oakley Systems integrates with the Kazeon eDiscovery solutions to provide proactive detection and prevention services across a company's network. Kazeon automatically discovers data at rest and, if the electronically stored information matches a risk profile, moves sensitive data to a secure location for further monitoring. Raytheon Oakley automatically fingerprints collected data to monitor its use on endpoints and its movement across the enterprise network.

If uninformed users expose sensitive data, Raytheon Oakley detects the policy violation, notifies the user of the policy and reports the violation. When a malicious insider attempts to steal intellectual property or customer data, Raytheon Oakley can prevent the activity, alert the appropriate investigator, prioritize the incident by severity and capture indisputable visual evidence of the crime.

  The integrated solution will include the capability to:

  -- Discover Information -The Kazeon Information Server automatically
     discovers data at rest residing on:  desktops, laptops, file servers
     and e-mail servers across company networks and endpoints, creating an
     enterprise index of both content and metadata.
  -- Classify Data - The Kazeon Information Server automatically tags and
     classifies the discovered data based on pre-defined business risk
     policies using combinations of keywords, patterns and metadata.
  -- Automatically Move Data to a Secure Location - The Kazeon Information
     Server automatically moves or copies tagged data to a secure location
     to comply with company risk policies and for integration with Raytheon
     Oakley Systems.
  -- Fingerprint Sensitive Data - Raytheon Oakley automatically fingerprints
     collected data to be monitored across network and endpoint channels,
     including file systems, communication protocols and removable devices.
  -- Protect Sensitive Data - Raytheon Oakley provides extensive pre-defined
     policy configurations for common business scenarios, such as protecting
     customer information, intellectual property and sensitive data. This
     allows administrators to detect policy violations, prompt users of
     violations, block removable media or disable the computer.
  -- Investigate and Provide Forensics Evidence - Raytheon Oakley goes
     beyond data leak prevention by giving investigators and security
     personnel visual forensic evidence of malicious and accidental insider

"We are thrilled that Raytheon Oakley chose Kazeon to supply its customers with a key component of its insider threat solution," said Sudhakar Muddu, president and CEO of Kazeon. "Electronic data discovery is not driven solely by litigation. It is also driven by information security and privacy, regulatory compliance, corporate investigations, M&A and more. Kazeon's products enable customers to easily, cost effectively and proactively implement solutions to a broad range of electronic data discovery challenges."

"It's vital to find, classify and proactively monitor sensitive data, to minimize insider threat risk," Smith said. "Raytheon Oakley is also currently developing endpoint data discovery that extends our best-in-class insider threat agent to complement Kazeon's electronic data discovery capabilities on the network."
