Richard Kusiolek, Managing Editor GMCstreamTV has an important interview on cybersecurity with Trivalent's CSO, Rick Bueno. The U.S. Army has ordered nearby 10,000 new F110 G3 rugged computer tablets designed to transmit combat-relevant information in high-threat environments. The notebooks are made by Getac, a firm which has announced a partnership with Trivalent, which makes NSA & DOD security software. By partnering with Trivalent, Getac hopes to offer enhanced security technology to the Army through a NSA-certified data protection technology. The software incorporates Data Alchemy, a program designed to render the data unusable by any unauthorized party. Trivalent uses an encryption and shredding approach as a way to secure storage on a device or in the cloud.
Nett Warrior uses an emerging Army technology known as Joint Battle Command – Platform, a next-generation force tracking systems for both vehicles and dismounted units on the move; it represents the developmental trajectory sought by the Army which seeks to integrate advanced software for its emerging systems. The idea is to develop systems based on IP standards so they can quickly be upgraded as innovations occur.
