ProtecD@R Multi-Platform Encryptor (KG-204)

High Speed Classified Data Protection for Unattended Systems

The ProtecD@R® Multi-Platform (KG-204) is the latest in the line of ProtecD@R Data at Rest encryptors that prevents unauthorized access to classified information if the hard drives are lost or stolen. ProtecD@R Multi-Platform incorporates a ruggedized flexible design using standard interfaces that allows it to function in a wide spectrum of environments; from desktop to the harshest tactical locations. At 24 Gb/s throughput, the ProtecD@R Multi-Platform has the horsepower for high speed data storage, but is small enough for desktop or embedded use.

As the use of unmanned vehicles increase the risk of data loss to our adversaries increases. The ProtecD@R Multi-Platform is the first Data at Rest encryptor planned to be certified by NSA for protection of Top-Secret and Below data in Unattended Operations.

The ProtecD@R Multi-Platform is the ideal solution for tactical deployments. Its ruggedized small form factor combined with Gigabyte speeds provides our soldiers with the ideal tool for securing data from adversaries in forward deployed locations and in autonomous vehicle operations. An example of how the ProtecD@R Multi-Platform KG-204 encryptor is being used in real tactical environments is with the Unattended Network Storage (UNS) system from Curtiss-Wright.

Applications
The ProtecD@R Multi-Platform is rugged and Size Weight and Power (SWaP) optimized to support the most stringent tactical environments. With throughput speeds of 24 Gb/s, the KG-204 is the ideal data protection solution for applications with real-time performance requirements like video streaming and data analytics:

  • ISR data collection on manned and unmanned platforms
  • Tactical platform embedment (ground, air, sea)
  • Data Centers

Features

  • Protection of Top Secret and Below Data
  • High Speed Encryption (24 Gb/s)
  • Low latency, Transparent to End Users
  • Supports Unattended Operations
  • Operating System & Host Agnostic
  • Standard SATA Interfaces for Ease of Integration
  • Standalone, Rack mounted or Embedment
  • MIL-STD Ruggedized for Air, Land & Sea
  • Key Discovery for Simplified Key Management
  • Configuration, Management & Recovery via SNMPv3
  • Black Key Fill over DS-101 Interface via Local Mini-USB Port
