DULLES, Va., March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) Trusted Thin Client® (TTC) product was selected as the gold winner in the category "Security Products and Solutions for Government" at the 2014 Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards. The security industry celebrated the 10th annual awards in San Francisco, Calif. during the RSA Conference USA 2014 by honoring excellence in every facet of the cyber security industry including products, people behind the successes, and best companies.
With more than 95,000 applications worldwide, Raytheon Trusted Thin Client was recognized as an innovative, commercial off-the-shelf product. Hosted on the back end of a customer's network system, TTC uses virtualization technologies to provide users access to multiple networks of varying classifications via one wire to the desktop rather than multiple desktop machines accessing each network. This approach eliminates unnecessary hardware, enhances user productivity and simplifies IT administration across the enterprise.
"Clearly the problem of sharing classified information across multiple secure domains at various classification levels is a primary concern for both the intelligence and defense communities," said Ed Hammersla, managing director, Raytheon Cyber Products at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Critical infrastructure and commercial companies with highly sensitive data also see the value in efficiently sharing secure information. Our technology is being recognized by the Info Security Products Guide for its ability to help protect and share mission-critical information while bringing cost savings to our customer."
More than 50 judges across a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated in the awards process, and their average scores determined the 2014 Global Excellence Awards Winners announced during a dinner presentation February 24, 2014.
