TVE software enables simultaneous access to multiple operating systems, domains and security levels from a single computer

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – TVE software by General Dynamics C4 Systems is now available on HP business-class desktop and notebooks starting with the HP Compaq 8000 Elite business PC for government customers. TVE enables users to simultaneously see and work with information classified at various security levels on a single computer. A “green” technology option, TVE reduces the size, weight and power costs associated with multiple computer systems dedicated to a specific level of security or domain.
