Encryptor gets NSA certification

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 13 (UPI) -- A new data encryption system by General Dynamics C4 Systems has received U.S. National Security Agency certification for protecting secret-level information.

The system, called ProtecD@R PC encryptor, secures data, imagery, video and other information on computer hard drives and prevents unauthorized access to classified information.

"Data at rest (are) data at risk," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. "Considering the high value of information stored on military and government computers, the ProtecD@R PC encryptor fills a potential gap in information security that can occur after sensitive data (are) downloaded from a network."

ProtecD@R PC is about the size of an external hard drive. It is connected to a computer using an industry standard interface.

"Once connected, the encryptor automatically secures the data as it moves between the computer's processor and the hard drive, leaving the stored information encrypted and secure without reducing the computer's processing speed," the company said.
