The company said Monday its High Speed Guard and Trusted Gateway System offerings for cross domain data transfer completed the Lab Based Security Assessment for Secret and Below Interoperability.

High Speed Guard is designed to transfer structured machine-to-machine file at a speed of 9 gigabits per second and Trusted Gateway System is built to support the exchange of unstructured files such as PDF documents.
