High Speed Guard now available commercially

The Raytheon Co. is now offering its High Speed Guard (HSG) cross-domain data transfer technology as a commercial product.

Previously available only as a service to government agencies, HSG allows complex, bi-directional, automated data transfer between networks. It has data transfer rates in excess of 9 gigabits/sec on dual processor servers, running a hardened Red Hat Linux operating system with a Security Enhanced Linux (SE Linux) policy.

The HSG 3.0.3 release is designed to lower data center maintenance costs and improve monitoring by allowing consolidated network management. The commercialized version of HSG allows customers to receive product upgrades at no additional charge as part of a standard maintenance agreement. Previously, customers had to pay for each additional new feature.

Going commercial also means that HSG is no longer sold as an appliance, which allows customers the freedom to choose their own hardware platforms, company officials said.
