DISA Selects TELEGRID for Software Defined Networking Security
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has selected TELEGRID as a vendor in its Software Defined Networking (SDN) Use Case Proof of Concept. TELEGRID’s contribution is its advanced Traffic Flow Security (TFS) device which secures the network’s control and data planes.
TELEGRID’s TFS device enhances the cybersecurity profile of the network at Layer 2 and supports deployment with Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) encryptors. This provides network architects with many benefits including the use of low cost COTS encryptors while ensuring that the network conforms to Department of Defense (DoD) cybersecurity requirements and standards. The device can be tailored to a variety of network speeds including 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
TELEGRID’s TFS device highlights the company’s historical focus on developing advanced technical solutions to fill gaps between DoD needs and COTS offerings. TELEGRID’s solutions reflect a unique understanding of DoD requirements and an awareness that some COTS products offer more than what a customer wants but not enough of what they need.
