ARLINGTON, Va., April 8 (UPI) -- A BAE Systems application for secure information sharing has been chosen by the U.S. military as an enterprise-wide standard.
The system chosen by the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency is XTS Guard, a cross-domain solution that enables secure information sharing between networks of various security classifications.
A single XTS Guard can handle 20 domains and carry various types of data at high speed, the company said. XTS Guard is being used by DISA’s Cross Domain Enterprise Services to ensure its ability to securely share information among authorized users within the Department of Defense and across the Global Information Grid.
“The DOD has an unprecedented need to share information securely while maintaining the highest level of cyber security,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector. “With more than 700 worldwide deployments, our XTS Guard has a longstanding track record of securing sensitive data of all classification levels, and it’s an important tool for defending against insider threats.”
