TAUNTON, Mass., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Security Agency
(NSA) recently certified the new ProtecD@R Network (KG-202) data-at-rest
encryptor by General Dynamics to secure information classified at the Top
Secret level and below on removable and fixed storage devices. The
certification allows military and government personnel to transport classified
information stored on disk drives, tape and other media and ship it using
commercial carriers without the rigorous, time-consuming and expensive
procedures typically required for handling and transporting highly classified

"The ProtecD@R Network encryptor enables military and government personnel to
take a disk drive filled with classified information, drop it in a commercial
shipping envelope and send it off to another location, all in the same day,"
said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. "Before this
capability, it could take weeks or months and thousands of dollars to secure
the permissions and arrange for the logistics needed to transport this
mission-critical data from one point to another."

The ProtecD@R Network encryptor operates in offices, data center and in
tactical environments. In any operational environment, one ProtecD@R Network
encryptor is capable of separating the storage of up to 16 different data
sources at the same security level on a single storage system. This capability
eliminates the equipment costs, power requirements and space needed for
individual network encryptors dedicated to operating at one security level.

General Dynamics' ProtecD@R family of data-at-rest encryption products
protects classified information that is saved in computer servers and data
centers, computer hard drives or other storage devices that could be at risk
of being lost, stolen or compromised. More information is available at
