iDirect Government Technologies (iGT) + DoD—Requirements Reached (Satellite Router)

[SatNews] iDirect Government Technologies (iGT), a wholly owned subsidiary of VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), has announced that its Evolution® TRANSEC meets Department of Defense (DoD) transmission security (TRANSEC) requirements.

A National Security Agency (NSA) evaluation report titled “iDirect TRANSEC Compliance Evaluation 314-007R-2013” states that the evaluation “provides confidence to DoD Teleport stakeholders and users that iDirect’s Evolution System meets TRANSEC requirements and is in compliance with DoD directives and policies.”

“Our nation’s military and government agencies need an efficient, dependable way to transmit voice, video and data that is also secure, and iGT uses TRANSEC to deliver a secure IP-based satellite network,” said John Ratigan, President of iGT. “The positive results of this independent government evaluation should give users an increased confidence that when they use our Evolution satellite equipment, they are doing so securely. TRANSEC’s ability to obfuscate any data flow and traffic engineering information provides advanced data security, masking data that could be exploited by an adversary.”

iDirect’s Evolution TRANSEC has been available and in wide distribution since 2010. iDirect recently received FIPS 140-2 Level 1 Validation from NIST for its Evolution hardware and iDX 2.3.1 System Software, and Level 2 hardware.
