Viasat Announces 100 Gbps Ethernet Encryptor

ViaSat introduced a 100 Gbps Type 1 Ethernet encryptor for its satellite service.

The solution is targeted at government users for cloud computing and real-time data transport across the battlespace.

"When it comes to secure networking, ViaSat has a clear competitive advantage in providing innovative and network-efficient 'edge to cloud' encryption solutions to the U.S. government," said Jerry Goodwin, chief operating officer, Government Systems Division, ViaSat. "We are committed to lead the market with our Type 1 network encryptors, enabling warfighters to securely access classified communications across the entire battlespace. From the KG-142 to the KG-250XS to our Type 1 embeddable security modules, we are providing best-in-class solutions that meet the evolving communications needs of our forces."

ViaSat said its 100 Gbps encryptor broadens its 'edge to cloud' network encryption portfolio, coming on the heels of the recently announced NSA-certified KG-250XS, which is the lowest size, weight, and power (SWaP), rugged HAIPE IS v4.1 network encryptor, and is compatible with ViaSat's family of field-proven Type 1 HAIPE devices.
