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.
"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."
