Viasat has updated a device built to help government and military customers secure networks that process sensitive information.

KG-142 now works to protect Layer 2 Ethernet communications for big data processing and cloud computing applications, Viasat said Wednesday.

The National Security Agency-certified network encryptor is designed to help users simultaneously operate up to 32 peer-to-peer connections at a speed of 10 gigabits per second.
