The INTEGRITY Secure Client Solution Achieves TSABI PL-4 Accreditation to Protect Government DataMultilevel Solution That Can Save Government Agencies Millions of Dollars Receives Accreditation (April 02, 2012)
DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 04/02/12 -- DoDIIS - INTEGRITY Global Security, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Green Hills Software, today announced the INTEGRITY Secure Client (ISC) solution was granted a Protection Level 4 (PL-4) accreditation. Sponsored by the US Air Force, the accreditation provides the government community with the benefits of secure data separation and simultaneous data access on commercially available computers.
Solving the long-term IT challenge of requiring several PCs at one workspace to keep multiple networks separate, ISC enables entities with data of various security levels to use a single PC to access and securely separate multiple networks concurrently. As government agencies refresh their infrastructure, consolidating multiple desktop computers into a single PC can save millions of dollars per year. The impact of this solution will be especially important, as agencies need to achieve a federally mandated 30% reduction in energy use by 2015.
The ISC solution is a commercially available off-the-shelf solution that delivers the highest-level security protection available for computing systems. This makes the solution a fit for any organization currently using multiple PCs per user. The result of the ISC solution is a more efficient computing infrastructure and significant reduced costs for hardware, maintenance and energy, also reducing a user's carbon footprint. The ISC solution can save agencies up to $2000 a year per user which in most agency enterprises can scale to save millions of dollars each year.
The PL-4 accreditation grants access to multiple classified security domains concurrently. Designed to meet stringent government requirements for resource separation, the system is derived from proven technology, the INTEGRITY-178B Separation Kernel. The INTEGRITY-178B Separation Kernel is the only software certified by NIAP to EAL6+(1) and High Robustness.
The system also incorporates widely used and trusted technology:
- Standard off-the-shelf desktop PCs, which are widely used by government customers
- Intel® vPro technology
The INTEGRITY Secure Client Solution delivers value to users, system administrators and enterprise managers by:
- simplifying configuration and management
- significantly reducing costs for every multi PC user consolidated
- providing an unprecedented level of software security
- leveraging affordable COTS hardware
- eliminating the need for an administrator to manage multiple platforms

"We are thrilled to be granted the PL-4 certification, and we greatly appreciate the hard work and diligence of the government certifiers.
