Raytheon said the partnerships will provide a security analytics and artificial intelligence platform, and a cloud-based secure virtual browser to aid its customers with protecting critical infrastructures.

“With global critical infrastructure systems under constant attack, organizations need flexible access to the most advanced technology possible to ensure resiliency,” John DeSimone, vice president of Cybersecurity and Special Missions at Raytheon’s Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS) segment, said in a statement. “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.”

Cybraics’ nLighten platform provides security analytics and artificial intelligence as a services, which the company says can find unknown, advanced and insider threats. Authentic8’s Silo secure virtual browser isolates users from web code and provides identity management controls.

Raytheon’s IIS segment earlier this year entered a similar partnership with Virsec, which provides a security platform for real-time detection of deviations in software applications and protects memory.
