The National Security Agency has certified a compact device General Dynamics' mission systems unit designed to protect sensitiveÂ data at rest in manned or unmanned systems.
The ProtecD@R Multi-Platform encryptor is built toÂ safeguard information up to the top secret levelÂ on storage media such as hard drives andÂ server blades, the company said Wednesday.
General Dynamics Mission Systems developed theÂ ProtecD@R technology to complement its suite of Taclane network encryption products.
The hardwareÂ measures 85 cubic inches, can be mounted in a rackÂ for stationary and mobile platforms and employs the GEM OneÂ software designed to support configuration and management ofÂ encryptors via a single console.
"With the growing use of unmanned and autonomous platforms, our customers need to prevent access to classified information in unattended systems," said Brian Morrison, vice president ofÂ GDMS' cyber systems business.
