We protect our customers' sensitive information by following Information Technology (IT) and Information Assurance (IA) security certification and accreditation (C&A) processes. This includes detection (via monthly on-site IA scans), tracking, analysis, reporting, and mitigation of emerging threats. We close all vulnerabilities, routing only mission-critical information as dictated by our customers’ requirements.
Our IA Engineering Service team employs Transmission Security (TRANSEC) on RF portions of the network. We also leverage NSA-approved Type 1 encryption devices, and our modem technology supports Triple Data Encryption Standard- (3DES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-level encryption. Our solution is a secure, reliable platform for all IP traffic, supporting classified and unclassified networks. Through our 24/7/365 Network Operations Security Center (NOSC), Inmarsat Government’s highly skilled and cleared personnel maintain on-site Communications Security (COMSEC) capabilities. We work closely with IA certifiers to ensure adherence to all government requirements. We also employ cleared personnel (U.S. and NATO) and support our customers’ Authority to Operate (ATO), Information Security (INFOSEC) and IA process requirements.
