CloudShield, Innovative Technology Solutions Develop Military Messaging Security Platform

Companies partner to create a Binary Armor application, which allows surveillance of military instant messaging, chat, and messaging exchanges

SUNNYVALE, Calif. " July 21, 2009 " CloudShield Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of service management and infrastructure security solutions, and Innovative Technology Solutions (ITS), a leading provider of information technology services and integration solutions for mission-critical intelligence and US government programs, today announced their Binary Armor solution that enables a joint cross domain platform for military users involved in instant messaging, chat and intelligence data message exchanges.

Built on the CloudShield CS-2000 platform, ITS utilized its unique Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to develop a solution that allows government users to communicate on classified and unclassified security domains seamlessly. The architecture currently supports UAV operations, as well as numerous intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance efforts for the US government.

"Confidential information is often shared over military messaging platforms and it is critical that users have the tools in place to make sure that information is secure," said Bruce Gilley, Vice President of Federal Business Development at CloudShield. "Through our unique packet processing architecture, secure management and open programmability, CloudShield is providing the high performance and essential functionality needed to secure and control critical information flows at today's network rates."

"In developing this application on CloudShield's patented hardware, we aimed to exploit progressive ideas and solve unique security issues for the US government," said Joe Yavorski, President and CEO at ITS. "The successful implementation by military agencies, in turn, will drive efficient and effective product, process, service or business practice evolutions."

The solution will be highlighted at the 2009 Joint Symposium & Expo , "Team C4ISR: From Concept to Combat" from September 15-17, 2009, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

CloudShield is the only DPI vendor that enables ISVs, SIs and customers to write applications on its hardware solutions platform. Applications are developed for the CS-2000 and the IBM BladeCenter PN41 using packetC, CloudShield's network processing language, and the first open programming language designed for secure, scalable high-performance parallel network processing.
