General Dynamics Mission Systems' new TACLANE in-line network encryptor is now certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to secure information at the Top Secret level and below.

The NSA certification authorizes U.S. government organizations to order the new 10G encryptor.

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

The TACLANE-10G is the newest member of General Dynamics' cyber defense product family and 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 U.S. and coalition data files simultaneously without operator intervention, reducing the number of encryptors needed to perform similar functions.
