Mercury’s Advanced Encryptor Receives Certification from NSA

Mercury Systems announced its Jannson Data-At-Rest (JDAR) encryptor has been certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to protect stored data classified secret and below.

Fully certified as an NSA Type-1 cryptographic module and developed in collaboration with the Department of Defense, the encryptor offers an innovative approach to the growing need for data-at-rest protection in an ultra-low size, weight, and power form factor while providing high throughput, ruggedization and anti-tamper protection.

Sensitive data is vulnerable when deployed at the edge and must be protected from local or remote attacks. The JDAR module protects data-at-rest and can be easily integrated into many of Mercury’s existing avionics, unmanned and unattended sensors, surveillance, communication and wearable systems, ensuring sensitive data cannot be compromised.

“Weighing less than a pound and the size of a smartphone, our advanced miniature NSA Type-1 JDAR encryptor is the smallest in the industry and provides the flexibility and performance needed so today’s critical missions can address emerging threats,” said Mark Bruington, vice president, Mercury Mission Systems. “The innovative, purpose-built design makes it more cost-effective and easier than ever before for our A&D customers to entrust their most mission-critical avionics challenges to Mercury.”
