General Dynamics’ new encryptor now NSA certified
General Dynamics Mission Systems’ new TACLANE®-10G (KG-175X) in-line network encryptor is now certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to secure information at the Top Secret level and below, the Fairfax, VA-based company announced April 6. The NSA certification authorizes U.S. government organizations to order the new 10G encryptor.
“The NSA certification of TACLANE-10G is another step forward for General Dynamics Mission Systems’ cyber defense capabilities. General Dynamics keeps our customers connected while ensuring their security and advancing their operations. Securing sensitive and critical information is yet another example of how we support our customers,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems.
The TACLANE-10G is the newest member of General Dynamics’ cyber defense product family and can encrypt the equivalent of a high-definition feature film in moments, speeding it securely though a network with unprecedented fidelity at the Top Secret level and below. The encryptor also provides the ability to send and receive multiple U.S. and coalition data files simultaneously without operator intervention, reducing the number of encryptors needed to perform similar functions.
“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.”
