Information Assurance Specialists Inc., a leading manufacturer of portable, secure communications solutions for Government and Military use, announced that the IAS Small Tactical Executive WAN (STEW) communications solution, IAS KG-RU, and IAS Router MICRO have been placed on the NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program Component List.
The CSfC process enables commercial encryption components to be used in layered solutions to protect classified National Security Systems (NSS) information. Goals of the NSA CSfC Program are to reduce the amount of sustainment labor and recurring costs government and DOD customers experience when using and sustaining traditional Type 1 NSA Certified security solutions. Additionally, CSfC solutions allow users to maintain a high level of information assurance in high-risk of overrun or high-risk device compromise environments (such as in tactical edge use cases).
The IAS STEW, KG-RU and IAS Router MICRO are highly portable, robust communications solutions enabling users’ access to secure, classified voice, data, and video services, over multiple commercial network technologies, from even the most remote locations. Built from the ground up, IAS’ STEW, KG-RU and IAS Router MICRO are enterprise-class, highly secure, unclassified IP networking router/VPN gateway/firewall appliances.
“The inclusion of the IAS STEW, KG-RU and IAS Router MICRO on the CSfC Component List marks another milestone in our continued commitment of providing leading edge communication solutions that meet the most stringent security and mission requirements in support of our U.S. Government and military customers.” said Keir Tomasso, President, IAS.
IAS designs and manufactures secure communication products and solutions that are consistently superior in performance, flexibility, size and weight. As Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) experts, IAS offers the only two NSA CSfC Component List listed devices that are CSfC VPN Gateway 3.1 Capability Package-compliant appliances that contain both Grey and Red VPN Gateway appliances within a single device form factor (The IAS STEW and IAS KG-RU). The company’s products are already trusted by government agencies including the Department of Defense, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Security Agency, the National Security Council, Executive Office of the President and many others.
