GDMS ships first ProtecD@R units

On September 15, Fairfax, VA-based General Dynamics Mission Systems announced that it has shipped multiple direct sale ProtecD@R® Multi-Platform (KG-204) Data at Rest encryptors to a U.S. government unmanned program to help secure and protect collected mission, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data.

ProtecD@R Multi-Platform is a compact high assurance end cryptographic unit (ECU) that safeguards classified information even in the event of a loss or compromise of a hard drive, allowing for sustained collection of intelligence by unattended or autonomous systems. At 85 cubic inches, and weighing less than five pounds, the ProtecD@R Multi-Platform is rugged and Size Weight and Power (SWaP) optimized to be easily integrated into a diverse set of platforms.

The ProtecD@R line of DaR encryptors complements General Dynamics Mission Systems’ TACLANE® portfolio of network encryptors, and meets NSA’s stringent requirements for protecting data stored on hard drives, server blades, and other storage media. The ProtecD@R Multi-Platform is supported by GEM® One Encryptor Management software, enabling network administrators to remotely configure and manage network, voice and storage encryptors from a single console.
