ViaSat ruggedized encryptor gets NSA certification.


The National Security Agency/Central Security Service (NSA/CSS) has certified the KG-200R Hardware Encryptor, a ruggedized inline media encryptor from ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT) that protects classified (TS/SCI and below) Data at Rest (DAR).

The KG-200R meets or exceeds MIL-STD-810F and F-15/F-18 Air Worthiness Requirements (AWR), providing Type 1 encryption to protect classified DAR in the most extreme, environmentally-challenging missions and tactical deployments.

Built to withstand the temperature, shock, vibration, and embeddable requirements of severe airborne, sea, and land environments, the KG-200R ensures that classified data is securely encrypted on a hard drive no matter the mission. Once installed, the ruggedized inline media encryptor is designed to render all data unclassified, reducing the risk of compromise, data vulnerability, and handling of classified storage drives.

ViaSat delivers fast, secure communications, Internet, and network access to virtually any location for consumers, governments, enterprise, and the military. The company offers fixed and mobile satellite network services including Exede by ViaSat, which features ViaSat-1, the world's highest capacity satellite; service to more than 1,750 mobile platforms, including Yonder Ku-band mobile Internet; satellite broadband networking systems; and network-centric military communication systems and cybersecurity products for the US and allied governments. ViaSat also offers communication system design and a number of complementary products and technologies.
