TACLANE-1G encryptor certified to Top Secret and below
General Dynamics C4 Systems has announced that its new TACLANE-1G (KG-175G) encryptor has been certified by the US National Security Agency (NSA) to secure classified information at the Top Secret level and below. The company made the announcement in a 30 January statement.
According to the company, the TACLANE-1G high-speed encryptor secures large data and image files 40 times faster than information moving through a commercial 4G network and weighs just eight pounds. It can be used in vehicles, remote command posts, data centres or wherever government and military personnel travel or work.
The system is designed to alert network personnel when potentially threatening software code, deep within a message ‘packet,’ is detected, and can also ensure that classified information reaches its destination, even if part of the network is inoperable or unavailable, via enhanced routing capabilities. The TACLANE-1G can also be controlled and remotely managed by the GEM XTM encryptor manager for greater cyber defence and agility when network operations or conditions change.
Mike Guzelian, vice president of Secure Voice and Data Products for General Dynamics C4 Systems, said: ‘Supporting NSA's cyber defence strategy, the TACLANE-1G helps keep classified networks operating securely and at top speed. 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.’
