Raytheon has announced the release of a new version of its High-Speed Guard cross-domain information-sharing solution aimed at government organizations. The firm promises that the latest version will be more economical, reducing hardware costs up to 75 percent and that it will be up to 625 percent faster, with peak performance increased to 5 gigabytes per second from 800 megabytes per second. The third-generation Guard will be demonstrated at the 2009 Unified Cross Domain Management Office (UCDMO) Conference.
The purpose of cross-domain solutions is to increase ease of interoperability and maintaining data security for shared data among various security levels. This latest technology will utilize two processor commercial off-the-shelf servers, which run Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. Built-in support for HTTP users is also provided. Raytheon expects full accreditation by year-end.
Steve Hawkins, vice president of Raytheon’s Information Security Solutions business, said, “This release is the next major step forward for High-Speed Guard…For more than 10 years, Raytheon has been at the forefront of cross-domain technologies to meet our customers’ diverse needs, and we continue to be the fastest Guard on the market.”
