FAIRFAX, Va., April 7 (UPI) -- A new in-line network encryptor to protect information has received National Security Agency certification, enabling U.S. government organizations to use the system.
The encryptor is the TACLANE-10G (KG-175X) from General Dynamics Mission Systems and is suitable for use with information at the Top Secret level and below. It encrypts the equivalent of a high-definition feature film in moments, for example, and also provides the ability to send and receive multiple U.S. and coalition data files simultaneously without operator intervention.
"For more than 50 years, the U.S. government has trusted General Dynamics to secure government networks ensuring that sensitive and classified information remains out of the reach of unauthorized individuals," said Nadia Short, vice president and general manager of the Cyber Systems line of business for General Dynamics Mission Systems. "The NSA certification recognizes and validates the TACLANE-10G's ability to secure data through government networks worldwide."
General Dynamics noted that its Customer Investment Protection Program encourages organizations protecting critical networks and infrastructure to maximize their cyber security by using General Dynamics' trade-in programs. Current users of the High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor can use the programs to obtain the TACLANE-10G.
Additional information on the TACLANE-10G was not provided.
