BiTMICRO Networks Inc’s RAMPART Distributed End-to-End Embedded Cyber Security Modules and Management Software offer a unique hardware-based security solution for data that is stored and/or transmitted from remote or mobile military platforms. RAMPART modules are rugged, compact, low-power/high-capacity storage modules that are easy to integrate and centrally manage. Data is encrypted while stored on the RAMPART module and remains encrypted while transmitted to a RAMPART-enabled local host. With RAMPART, if data is intercepted at any point, it will be encrypted by AES-256 and unreadable. Only an authenticated user can access the data at the local host.
