General Dynamics' TACLANE-1G encryptor receives NSA certification for top secret and below

TAUNTON, Mass., 1 Feb. 2013. General Dynamics C4 Systems' TACLANE-1G (KG-175G) encryptor has received certification from the National Security Agency (NSA) to secure classified information at the Top Secret level and below. The encryptor secures data and image files faster than information moving through a commercial 4G network and weighs eight pounds.

Designed to support the NSA’s cyber defense strategy, the TACLANE-1G helps keep classified networks operating securely.

 The TACLANE-1G is rugged and can be used in vehicles, remote command posts, data centers or other locations where secure communications are needed. With its encryption technology, the TACLANE-1G is capable of alerting network personnel when potentially threatening software code, 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 cybersecurity and agility when network operations or conditions change. It is available to U.S. government agencies, the Department of Defense and qualified allied nations.
