KG-201 Laptop Inline Media Encyptor

TS/SCI Secure Data at Rest for Mobile Computing

When disaster strikes, the Viasat KG-201 Inline Media Encryptor (IME) foils threats to national security. Developed and certified by the US government, the KG-201 is the first mobile media encryptor that protects classified Data at Rest (DAR) at Top Secret (TS/SCI) and below. In the event that a classified laptop, notebook or other mobile computer is lost, stolen or tampered with, its hard drive remains encrypted. Simply remove the KG-201 Cryptographic Ignition Key (CIK) to quickly secure the hard drive and eliminate the need to handle it as a classified device.

For added convenience and portability, the KG-201 is able to house your laptop’s hard drive or act as an external hard drive for secure mobile and transportable data storage. It’s also small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and easily connects to any brand of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) PC via USB. In the event you need more secure data storage capacity in the future, simply replace the hard drive housed inside your KG-201 with a COTS hard drive of larger capacity.
