OCTOBER 13, 2008 -- SafeNet Inc. has announced the availability of the KG-340, its Type 1 SONET/SDH Encryptor for the protection of classified information sent over high-speed U.S. Government networks. It is the only encryptor of its kind in existence, asserts the company.

Developed under the National Security Agency's Commercial COMSEC Evaluation Program, the KG-340 is expected to be deployed by the U.S. Government's intelligence communities, Department of Defense, and civilian agencies to protect classified communications traversing the information grid. The KG-340 provides full-duplex hardware-accelerated encryption with HAIPE-compliant key exchange.

"The KG-340 operates at the SONET/SDH layer, delivering low-latency security with no overhead generation, ideal for high bandwidth circuits," said Jay Lindenauer, SafeNet's director of engineering for transport encryption. "The KG-340 is a flexible platform that will enable SafeNet to deliver new encryption solutions to customers as their network security needs evolve."
