PHOENIX, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- A system that allows intelligence to be securely shared among personnel working at all security levels has been developed by Lockheed Martin.
Called Trusted Sentinel, the solution allows data to be manually and/or automatically transferred among two or more differing security domains by using a single consolidated configuration of hardware and software.
"In today's complex cyberthreat environment, protecting and securing our data is critical," said Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) systems for Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions. "Trusted Sentinel addresses the difficult challenge of sharing relevant information across security domains and between organizational echelons."
Lockheed said Trusted Sentinel controls the release of information commensurate with the security level of the information being processed, including clearance level, formal access approval and user need by using a suite of network protection capabilities. It also ensures information traveling back up the chain from uncleared sources does not contain malicious code that could corrupt networks.
Additional details on Trusted Sentinel were not disclosed, but Lockheed Martin said it had received design approval from the government's Unified Cross Domain Management Office.
