NSA Certifies General Dynamics's FASTLANE KG-75A Encryptor

Via DarkReading -

The National Security Agency (NSA) has certified General Dynamics C4 Systems’ FASTLANE® KG-75A encryptor for securing high-speed, high-volume transmission of voice, video and data, classified up to Top Secret, across two common network platforms: Synchronous Optical Networks (SONET)/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks.

Currently employed by military, government and public networks worldwide, the FASTLANE KG-75A provides a software-based, graphical user interface that enables users to transition between ATM and SONET/SDH functionality without hardware change or modification, simplifying integration and operation for either network.

“The FASTLANE KG-75A encryptor is the first NSA-certified, network encryptor to offer programmable, multi-data rate encryption for information classified up to Top Secret over both SONET/SDH and ATM networks,” said John Cole, vice president of Information Assurance for General Dynamics C4 Systems. “The more than 176,000 General Dynamics encryptors reflect our company’s expertise in this market. Government and military users have a complete portfolio of General Dynamics interoperable information security products that are available whenever and wherever needed."
