Traditional malware detection solutions such as antivirus, spam gateways and firewalls, have failed to address sophisticated, socially engineered, polymorphic, zero-day attacks. As a result, attacks of this nature have eroded the perimeter security of many high-value networks, such as those within the government and industry. Raytheon's RShield™ advance malware detection product was designed for large enterprise deployments, with scalability, to address these types of targeted attacks.
RShield analyzes email attachments and embedded URLs by rapidly routing email to virtualized "detection farms" where it is opened and observed for malicious activity. RShield has detected and stopped thousands of attacks including numerous zero-day attacks -- attacks that would have evaded firewalls, desktop anti-virus and other conventional security solutions.
