The AltoCrypt Stik – NGW is a 65g USB device that is used with laptops or tablets allowing people to work in the field, from home, whilst travelling or meeting in collaboration spaces. The AltoCrypt Stik – NGW is a wireless communications architecture which integrates commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technology that implements Government approved encryption to realise a secure, scalable wireless network. Defence users can now exchange classified information at a field deployed headquarters in a rapid, agile and secure manner. The AltoCrypt architecture can be applied to a range of deployed forces operating in a variety of environments.
The AltoCrypt Stik – NGW isolates the classified laptop or tablet from the wireless network it must connect through to access classified data and enabling a digitally connected battlefield – protecting both the laptop and data it has accessed. A user simply plugs the preconfigured device into their laptop and authenticates to connect to the classified data they are allowed to touch. The AltoCrypt Stik technology has been extensively validated by government to ensure it can handle the highest classified materials. It has been lab and field tested by government test authorities and customers in order to meet sovereign security compliance requirements specific to Australia.
