A new in-line network encryptor has been certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to secure information at the Top Secret level and below. The NSA certification authorizes US government organizations to order the new TACLANE-10G (KG-175X) encryptor manufactured by General Dynamics Mission Systems.
The TACLANE-10G is the newest line-up in General Dynamics’ cyber defense product family. It 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 US and coalition data files simultaneously without operator intervention, reducing the number of encryptors needed to perform similar functions, according to General Dynamic.
“The NSA certification of TACLANE-10G is another step forward for General Dynamics Mission Systems’ cyber defense capabilities,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems. “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."
“For more than 50 years, the US 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.”

General Dynamics said its “Customer Investment Protection Program encourages organizations protecting critical networks and infrastructure to maximize their investment and maintain their security posture by using General Dynamics’ trade-in programs. A TACLANE-10G trade-in program is available through December 31, 2015, allowing users of the current HAIPE in-line encryptor to take advantage of the new bandwidth efficiency and cyber security features provided by the 10G.
