      [Via Satellite 09-26-13] iDirect Government Technologies’ (iGT) Evolution TRANSEC has met the Department of Defense’s (DoD) transmission security (TRANSEC) requirements.

      A National Security Agency (NSA) evaluation report titled “iDirect TRANSEC Compliance Evaluation 314-007R-2013” states that the evaluation “provides confidence to DoD Teleport stakeholders and users that iDirect’s Evolution System meets TRANSEC requirements and is in compliance with DoD directives and policies.”

      “Our nation’s military and government agencies need an efficient, dependable way to transmit voice, video and data that is also secure, and iGT uses TRANSEC to deliver a secure IP-based satellite network,” said John Ratigan, president of iGT. “The positive results of this independent government evaluation should give users an increased confidence that when they use our Evolution satellite equipment, they are doing so securely. TRANSEC’s ability to obfuscate any data flow and traffic engineering information provides advanced data security, masking data that could be exploited by an adversary.”
