New Encryptor by General Dynamics is NSA Certified to Secure Classified Information Stored on Computer Hard Drives
When military or government computers are lost or stolen, information saved on the computer hard drive, known as data-at-rest, is no longer data-at-risk.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics C4 Systems' new ProtecD@R PC encryptor secures data, imagery, video and other information stored on computer hard drives.  Now certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to protect information classified at the Secret level and below, the new Suite B encryptor prevents unauthorized access to classified information if a computer is lost, stolen, or susceptible to insider threat.  General Dynamics C4 Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD).

"Data at rest is data at risk," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. "Considering the high value of information stored on military and government computers, the ProtecD@R PC encryptor fills a potential gap in information security that can occur after sensitive data is downloaded from a network."

About the size of an external hard drive, the ProtecD@R PC encryptor connects to a computer using an industry standard interface.  Once connected, the encryptor automatically secures the data as it moves between the computer's processor and the hard drive, leaving the stored information encrypted and secure without reducing the computer's processing speed.

The ProtecD@R PC encryptor is designated by the NSA as a Cryptographic High Value Product (CHVP), Non-Controlled Cryptographic Item (CCI) enabling relaxed handling and accounting of the device making it ideal for use in environments where there is a high risk of equipment loss.

General Dynamics' ProtecD@R family of products include data-at-rest encryptors for laptop and desktop computers, as well network-level devices and rugged versions for use in tactical environments.  More information is available at http://www.gdc4s.com/protecD@R.
