General Dynamics’ TNE cyber-defense software safeguards U.S. military

GD TNE General Dynamics C4 Systems‘ Trusted Network Environment (TNE), version 11-S cyber-defense software, is now being used by the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) to securely share classified information at the Secret-level among U.S. military organizations and authorized NATO and coalition military partners.

During joint operations, the TNE multi-level security software enables greater flexibility and collaboration among organizations while ensuring that higher levels of classified information moving through the same tactical network remains secure and separated from information at lower security levels.

“This is a powerful new capability for the U.S. military and its international military partners working joint operations like those currently taking place in many of the world’s hot-spots,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. “With TNE these organizations can share intelligence information and respond in real-time, a capability they’ve never had before.”

Approved by the National Security Agency, TNE version 11-S includes content inspection technology that validates that the information moving through both U.S. military and coalition partner networks is free of malware and other cyber threats down to the very smallest elements within a network transmission.

The cyber-defense tool is also certified by the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) Security Accreditation Working Group (DSAWG) for Secret and below Interoperability (SABI), allowing the cyber-defense software to operate on government networks.

General Dynamics’ TNE is a cyber information-sharing solution that provides military and government customers improved security and access to classified data at various security levels from a single enterprise environment based on a user’s security credentials and access privileges. Advanced data-labeling technology separates classified data so users can only see what their individual security profiles allow, without visibility into other data files or applications. TNE also enables multilevel web services and multilevel chat capabilities so users on different network domains can share the same chat room. TNE is on the Unified Cross Domain Services Management Office’s (UCDSMO) Cross Domain Baseline list.

For more than 40 years, General Dynamics has delivered the cyber-defense products and technologies trusted by the U.S. military and government agencies to secure the nation’s most sensitive information. For the central office or data center, the company’s high-speed TACLANE network encryptors, like the new TACLANE-10G, secure networks at the highest security level with the ability to identify possible threats that may be embedded deeply into network data files.
