API Technologies Develops Secure, Mobile Communications Hub with Embedded Encryption
ORLANDO, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) ("API" or the "Company"), a trusted
provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for
critical and high-reliability applications, announced today the new SST™
Secure Communications Hub (SCH) with integrated encryption. The SB1500ER
Secure Communication Hub is a single, integrated device that replaces
case-based solutions. It provides both 3G or satellite connectivity and
high grade (Type 1 equivalent) IP encryption. The SCH is currently
deployed in the UK Government.
"API specializes in developing leading-edge secure mobility products
that deliver high performance in harsh or rugged environments. The SCH
meets the growing demand from government and military users who need
fast, highly-reliable, encrypted, on-the-go connectivity in remote
locales," said Matthew Richards, Vice President/Managing Director, SSIA
International, API Technologies.
The SCH integrates accredited data transmission (Mini-CATAPAN®
encryption) and data at rest (Eclypt® drive in Laptop) products for an
accredited highly secure mobile solution. It features three red-side LAN
ports enabling it to act as a secure communications "hub" and provides
encrypted WAN (BGAN, ADSL, etc.) or 3G black-side connectivity.
"By combining acompact and lightweight rugged design with the
capability to provide WAN access to multiple users - our new Secure
Communication Hub is ideal for ad-hoc mobile or remote military and
government environments," added Richards.
For unplugged tactical use, the SCH can operate on battery power,
ensuring continuous operation when AC power is not available. The user
interface provides connectivity selection, battery status, crypto
key-fill and management features with the Mini-CATAPAN identifier
remaining visible. It meets MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461F requirements.
A vehicle mounted version for government, military, and first responders
is also available. Solutions that will provide seamless hotel and public
Wi-Fi connectivity are also in development.
