Raytheon is offering a faster version of its High-Speed Guard cross-domain information sharing tool for government. The technology supports data sharing among different security classification environments such as classified, secret or top secret.
Company engineers demonstrated the High-Speed Guard 3.0 at the 2009 Unified Cross Domain Management Office Conference in San Diego.
The product offers performance speeds of 5 gigabits/sec and sustains full transfer rate on two processor servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 with a Security-Enhanced Linux policy. The company said that this third-generation product is 625 percent faster than earlier versions and reduces hardware costs by 75 percent. High-Speed Guard 3.0 also includes support for Web services using HTTP and provides control and auditing of video streams through MPEG2/4 parsing capability.
Raytheon representatives said the product has passed the first round of certification requirements, and the company said it expects it to receive full accreditation by the end of the year.
