Raytheon enhances cyber threat hunting with CyberSponse automation tools

New capability unveiled at Black Hat cybersecurity conference

LAS VEGASJuly 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon Company will integrate the CyberSponse security platform to automate threat detection and response for its managed services customers. This technology collaboration combines CyberSponse’s automated incident response and security orchestration capabilities with Raytheon’s innovative Virtual-Security Operations Center, or V-SOC services, to reduce attacker dwell time in enterprises defended by Raytheon (NYSE:RTN).

The combination of Raytheon and CyberSponse capabilities will give existing security operations centers the ability to collect data and react at near machine speed.
