Raytheon|Websense and Stonesoft are now Forcepoint
Venture builds on integration of Raytheon Cyber Products, Websense and Stonesoft
Raytheon|Websense has revealed its new company name, Forcepoint, along with multiple new products.
Forcepoint brings defense-inspired cybersecurity to the global commercial market, providing organizations with a unified software platform that defends against attacks, rapidly detect breaches and stops damage and theft.
The new venture is built on the successful integration of Websense, Raytheon Cyber Products and the recently-acquired Stonesoft next-generation firewall business.
“Forcepoint’s platform empowers organizations to concentrate on business execution and growth knowing that their data is being protected in the cloud, on the road and in the office,” said Forcepoint CEO John McCormack. “Our approach is to provide an unparalleled platform to defend against attacks, detect suspicious activity sooner and give the context needed to decide what actions to take to defeat the attack and stop the theft of data.”
By bringing defense-inspired technology to the commercial sector, Forcepoint is joining Raytheon’s commitment to make the world a safer place and meet the most challenging cybersecurity threats.
As part of its company launch, Forcepoint is launching three new products addressing insider threats, cloud-based protection of Microsoft Office 365™, and best-in-class, massively distributed, next-generation, network security.
