Jan. 31, 2013 at 2:22 PM

TAUNTON, Mass., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- General Dynamics C4 Systems reports the U.S. National Security Agency has certified the company's TACLANE-1G (KG-175G) encryptor.

Certification approves the encryptor to secure information at the Top Secret level and below.

"Supporting NSA's cyber-defense strategy, the TACLANE-1G helps keep classified networks operating securely and at top speed," said Mike Guzelian, vice president of Secure Voice and Data Products for General Dynamics C4 Systems.

"Lightweight and power efficient, the TACLANE-1G also delivers unprecedented network security and efficiency when it comes to moving large classified files in vehicles or office environments."

The TACLANE-1G, which weighs 8 pounds, secures data files and image files 40 times faster than information moving through a commercial 4G network. It can be used in vehicles, remote command posts, data centers or other locations and is capable of alerting network personnel when potentially threatening software code, deep within a message "packet," is detected.

It also has enhanced routing capabilities, the company said.

The TACLANE-1G is only available to U.S. government agencies and qualified allied countries.
