Features at a Glance

  • Cyber-Defense-capable network encryption
  • NSA certified to protect information classified Top Secret and below
  • Increased processing speeds from the core to the edge of your network
  • Optional Agile VLAN and TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software
  • Simultaneous HAIPE®/IPMEIR
  • Low size, weight and power (SWaP)
  • 2 Gb/s aggregate throughput
  • Ruggedized for both tactical and strategic environments

Optional Feature Enhancements

  • Agile VLAN Software - Enables use of HAIPE security features on Layer 2 VLAN / Non-IP Ethernet traffic while simultaneously supporting standard HAIPE encryption of IP traffic. Benefits include:
    • Elimination of GRE tunnels
    • Bandwidth efficiency
    • Redundancy
    • Load balancing
  • TACLANE Trusted Sensor Software - As cyber attacks become more sophisticated and frequent, additional 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. 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 rule 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.
