DISA has selected BAE's XTS Guard as an enterprise-wide security standard. It will be used by the agency's Cross Domain Enterprise Services to securely share information between authorized users within the Department of Defense and across the Global Information Grid, according to a BAE announcement.

XTS Guard can securely share information between networks of various security classifications and enclaves. A single guard is capable of handling 20 domains and multiple types of data. DISA will use it to protect the agency’s email, file sharing, and system chat features.

“With more than 700 worldwide deployments, our XTS Guard has a longstanding track record of securing sensitive data of all classification levels, and it’s an important tool for defending against insider threats,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE's Intelligence & Security unit.
