Today's Intelligence Sharing Challenge: Secure Data Sharing Across Intelligence Networks
Today’s global terrorist threat is real. To discover and interdict that threat, decision makers need timely and comprehensive access to intelligence from a variety of sources – which often impose a variety of classification, compartmentalization, and need-to-know access criteria. Ultimately, the process of gathering and consolidating vital intelligence may be critically degraded when mismatched schemes of data protection leave potential partners to work in mutual isolation. In order to bridge this gap in intelligence sharing, a product is needed that can protect intelligence data while also enabling its dissemination across organizational and enclave boundaries. Lockheed Martin has developed the technology to expand the capabilities of secure intelligence sharing: Trusted Manager (TMAN).
Today's Intelligence Sharing Solution: Trusted Manager
Accredited by both the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency, Lockheed Martin's TMAN fosters secure data sharing by bridging the gaps between information assets of dissimilar classification or ownership. It secures data exchange among attached entities by applying rule-sets based on classification hierarchies, sender and receiver identities, transfer protocols, data types, message formats, and individual content items. Originally developed as a multi-level secure guard for tactical imagery with funding from the National Geospatial Agency, TMAN is currently deployed throughout the U.S. Air Force Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS).
