FAIRFAX, Va., 9 April 2015. The U.S National Security Agency (NSA) at Fort Meade, Md., has certified the KG-175X TACLANE-10G in-line network encryptor from the General Dynamics Corp. Mission Systems segment in Fairfax, Va., for government cyber security use at the Top Secret level and below.

The NSA certification authorizes U.S. government organizations to order the 10G data encryption device, company officials say. The TACLANE-10G is the newest member of the General Dynamics cyber defense product family and can encrypt the equivalent of a high-definition feature film in moments.

"The NSA certification of TACLANE-10G is another step forward for General Dynamics Mission Systems' cyber defense capabilities," says Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems.

The encryptor also provides the ability to send and receive several U.S. and coalition data files simultaneously without operator intervention, reducing the number of encryptors necessary to perform similar functions, General Dynamics officials say.

"The NSA certification recognizes and validates the TACLANE-10G's ability to secure data through government networks worldwide," says Nadia Short, vice president and general manager of the Cyber Systems line of business for General Dynamics Mission Systems.

A TACLANE-10G trade-in program is available through 31 Dec. 2015 to enable users of the current HAIPE in-line encryptor to swap their old systems for the TACLANE-10G.
