Mercury's Advanced Encryptor Receives Certification from NSA

-Powerful, miniature data-at-rest encryptor weighing less than a pound can be easily integrated into existing avionics systems, safeguarding sensitive data

Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY), a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, announced today that its Jannson Data-At-Rest (JDAR) encryptor has been certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to protect stored data classified secret and below.

Fully certified as an NSA Type-1 cryptographic module and developed in collaboration with the Department of Defense, the encryptor offers an innovative approach to the growing need for data-at-rest protection in an ultra-low size, weight, and power form factor while providing high throughput, ruggedization and anti-tamper protection.

Why it Matters:
Sensitive data is vulnerable when deployed at the edge and must be protected from local or remote attacks. The JDAR module protects data-at-rest and can be easily integrated into many of Mercury’s existing avionics, unmanned and unattended sensors, surveillance, communication, and wearable systems, ensuring sensitive data cannot be compromised.
