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

NSA Certified High Speed Classified Data Protection for Unmanned Systems

The ProtecD@R® Multi-Platform (KG-204) is the latest in the line of ProtecD@R high assurance Type 1 Data at Rest encryptors that prevents unauthorized access to classified information if the hard drives are lost or stolen. 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. It is the first Data at Rest encryptor now certified by NSA for protection of Top-Secret and Below data in Unmanned Operations.

Features

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. 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 now certified by NSA for protection of Top-Secret and Below data in Unmanned 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.
