Crystal Group PASS™ Introduced as Rugged Cybersecurity Solution at Four Global Events in October

Hiawatha, Iowa, October 4, 2018 – Crystal Group, Inc., a leading designer/manufacturer of rugged computer and electronic hardware, will introduce  Crystal Group PASS™ – Platform Agnostic Security Solutions engineered to enhance cybersecurity protection for critical data-at-rest systems utilizing rugged computers, servers, switches, and data storage systems at four events worldwide in October.

Crystal Group PASS includes the world’s first rugged FIPS 140-2 compliant data-at-rest storage devices, ruggedized RuckusTM ICX switches with NIAP certified IP-security modules for network encryption, and exclusively conformal-coated Seagate 2.5-inch, dual-port SAS drives compatible with any Crystal Group server, workstation, and JBOD or RAID storage system. Crystal Group’s encryption-based cybersecurity protection is built using the Intel® processor, chipset, and Trusted Platform Module to guard sensitive data-at-rest.

“PASS lines offer system designers the flexibility to meet exacting hardware and advanced cybersecure requirements,” said Jim Shaw, Crystal Group’s executive vice president of engineering. “Our ability to look ahead with customers, to develop specific variations of standard solutions, to meet their timeline, and protect their data is critical to successful mission and application execution while operating within demanding environments.”

Crystal Group manufactures its field-proven products in vertically integrated NIST compliant, AS9100D certified, U.S.-based facilities, tracing every component from the raw materials through production processes to the delivery of the final warrantied product. This helps to ensure an end-to-end U.S. supply chain of custody and helps prevent security vulnerabilities.
