NeTraverse partners with Getronics and Delta Secure

Author: JT Smith

Getronics Government Solutions, secure desktop and network solutions and services, NeTraverse Inc., the leading provider of thin-client software solutions on Linux and Intel-based Unix systems, and Delta Security Technologies Corporation, have joined forces to develop and deliver a secure Multi-Domain Workstation solution to meet identified demand in the U.S. Government.With this ground-breaking secure workstation solution, the U.S. Government will finally be able to deploy a more cost-effective, convenient and efficient solution that will enable it not only to leverage existing technology investments, but also to dramatically reduce new infrastructure costs and ensure an unparalleled level of security, currently absent from traditional IT solutions.

Providing multi-level secure access using open network infrastructures, the workstation solution will let users access both classified and unclassified data from a single workstation. Traditionally, organizations whose users require access to a sensitive or classified environment, but whose only network connectivity is on an open/unclassified network, have been forced to install a separate classified network with separate workstations or have users travel to a classified facility. With the Secure Multi-Domain Workstation, an authorized user will be able to change to a sensitive or classified state, by simply activating a "state change" mechanism that once activated, will instantly switch the user between the classified and unclassified environments.

Incorporating INFOSEC components to authenticate user transactions, the workstation operates in conjunction with Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology with encryption services and the XTS-300? based "Trusted Access Portal" server. As part of the joint development agreement between the three companies, Getronics Government Solutions and Delta Security will provide the secure operating system and hardware configuration, while NeTraverse will provide the unique technology to deploy Microsoft Windows applications on the secure platform.

"The need for this technology has been around for years, we are excited by this partnership not ONLY because we are finally able to bring to market a product that has been needed for years, but the Secure Multi-Domain Workstation will dramatically reduce costs in infrastructure and personnel," stated Mary Stassie, CTO, Getronics Government Solutions.

"Security, reliability and efficiency are key components of the secure workstation solution we will bring to market," said James Curtin, president and CEO of NeTraverse. "We are very pleased to partner with Getronics and Delta to provide a high-performance workstation solution to the US Government that enables it not only to ensure the highest level of security, but to improve productivity and reduce the cost and complexity of IT management."
