The First Cyber Defense-Capable HAIPE® at Gigabit Speeds

Networks today carry more traffic, are connected to more devices and are under siege from cyber attacks more than even before. In response to these evolving cybersecurity threats, General Dynamics has developed the TACLANE®-1G (KG-175G). The TACLANE-1G is a smaller, more power efficient 1 Gb/s high-speed and Cyber-Defense-capable network encryptor. The TACLANE-1G is ruggedized for both tactical and strategic environments and NSA certified to protect information classified Top Secret SCI and below. The TACLANE-1G is Agile VLAN-capable and can accept TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software to improve network sensing capabilities.

TACLANE Trusted Sensor (TTS) Software - As cyber attacks become more sophisticated and frequent, addtional security services are required to protect and defend networks and information. The TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software provides this additional security by adding intrusion detection and intrusion prevention capabilities to the TACLANE encryptor. With this new software, all IP packets are inspected for malicious data using Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and alerts are generated upon signature match. In addition to inspection, the TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software provides netflow and traffic pattern statistics. These additional features aid network administrators in understanding the overall health of the system, enables them to fine tune their filtering and reaction to attacks, as well as provides greater Defense-in-Depth in a cost effective manner. In addition TACLANE encryptors enabled with TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software can be used as a HAIPE® encryptor with sensing or in a "sensor only" mode. A key benefit of adding sensing capabilities to the TACLANE is that rules sets - both open source and government classified - can be utilized. TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software is NSA approved and available for purchase today for the TACLANE-1G.
