Raytheon and Virsec have partnered to offer commercial cybersecurity platforms to clients in government and critical infrastructure sectors.

Raytheon said Monday it will combine its experience in cyber defense with Virsec's Trusted Execution platform that works to detect irregularities in software applications associated with cyber breaches.

“Critical infrastructure ““ from the electrical grid to transportation ““ is under assault, and hackers are evading conventional security defenses,” said John DeSimone, vice president of cybersecurity and special missions at Raytheon's intelligence, information and services business.

“Commercial tools from companies like Virsec can help bridge the gap for our global government and commercial customers and provide effective protection against the growing cyber threat,“ DeSimone added.

The Trusted Execution platform works to safeguard processes, memory and critical systems from cyber intrusions that avoid network security tools through the use of memory exploits and other hacking methods.
