NCS Offers Choices With SecureView & Zero Client PortfolioSecureView snip

For government employees, processes to thwart security threats include strategies to protect databases and servers in data centers, locking down endpoints (like laptops and notebooks), and educating employees about everyday social engineering threats (clicking on destructive malware on a website or answering a malicious email).

Looking at every day network communications, IT administrators must accommodate potential access to various levels of secure networks, depending on the message and the need. This is known as multi-level computing.The various levels of protected information networks include NIPRNet (private IP network), SIPRNet (classified), and JWICS (top secret). When knowledge workers routinely access multiple networks in a given day, they often use SecureView, developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and implemented by NCS Technologies.

SecureView runs multiple securely isolated environments on one PC or workstation, with hardware-enforced security. This increasingly popular security solution is the result of extensive and continuing development work by AFRL, the open source community, Assured Information Security and NCS Technologies.

Access Multiple Security Domains Easily and Securely

SecureView provides local application execution and concurrent access to multiple security domains. This supports mission requirements, giving analysts the needed performance to run advanced applications, assess threats and share findings across agencies. NCS Technologies systems approved for use include the Stratus MT and Stratus DT desktops and the Vortex MT and Vortex MDT workstations.
