TAUNTON, Mass., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics C4 Systems' new TACLANE®-1G (KG-175G) encryptor is now certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to secure classified information at the Top Secret level and below. The 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.
"Supporting NSA's cyber defense strategy, the TACLANE-1G helps keep classified networks operating securely and at top speed," said Mike Guzelian, vice president of Secure Voice and Data Products for General Dynamics C4 Systems. "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."
The rugged TACLANE-1G can be used in vehicles, remote command posts, data centers or wherever government and military personnel travel or work. With advanced encryption technology, the TACLANE-1G is capable of alerting network personnel when potentially threatening software code, deep within a message "packet," is detected. It also has enhanced routing capabilities to ensure that classified information reaches its destination, even if part of the network is inoperable or unavailable.
The TACLANE-1G can also be controlled and remotely managed by the GEM X™ encryptor manager for greater cyber defense and agility when network operations or conditions change. It is available to U.S. government agencies, the Department of Defense and qualified allied nations.
General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been providing information security technology, products and systems to the U.S. government, military and industry customers for more than 40 years with more than 295,000 encryption devices in place worldwide.
