Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) High Speed Guard cross domain technology is now commercially available as an off-the-shelf product. High Speed Guard, previously offered as a service, has been on the U.S. Department of Defense's Unified Cross Domain Management Office baseline list of approved solutions since May of 2010.
"The commercialization of HSG provides significant advantages to customers," stated Ed Hammersla, chief operating officer for Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions. "Now they can purchase a product license and maintenance contract and will receive all new product enhancements as well as customer support."
The new HSG 3.0.3 release lowers data center maintenance cost and improves monitoring by enabling consolidated network management. Previously, customers would pay for each additional feature that was added to the product. Now, through commercialization of HSG, customers can benefit from product enhancements at no charge as part of a standard maintenance agreement. Another advantage of commercialization is that HSG will no longer be sold as an appliance. This allows customers' freedom of choice in selecting a hardware platform on which to run HSG.
High Speed Guard enables complex, bi-directional, automated data transfer from one network to another. HSG has demonstrated transfer rates of more than 9 gigabytes per second on dual processor commodity servers, running a hardened Red Hat(r) Enterprise Linux(r) operating system with a strict Security Enhanced Linux (SE Linux) policy.
