Secures training and testing environments through bi-directional fixed-format data filtering and disguise.
Mission readiness for agents, troops and equipment is essential to warfighter and national security. Forcepoint SimShield helps you deliver that readiness by enabling secure data exchange during training and testing. Connecting training and testing environments under real-world conditions – across security boundaries – allows for more effective training and more efficient test events. That means better trained warfighters and more thoroughly and quickly tested equipment, while achieving overall cost savings.
Forcepoint SimShield is an accredited Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) fixed-format data guard with the capability to label, segregate, protect and exchange data between systems executing at different sensitivity or classification levels. Forcepoint SimShield meets the requirements for data format, near real-time performance and low latency for distributed simulation operations, live training exercises and test events.
The Forcepoint Advantage
Forcepoint SimShield is an approved transfer cross domain solution on the Unified Cross Domain Services Management Office (UCDSMO) Cross Domain Baseline.
Evaluated by the High Performance Computing Modernization Program Office (HPCMPO) for connection to Defense Research & Engineering Network (DREN) and Secure Defense Research & Engineering Network (SDREN).
Forcepoint SimShield means lower training costs. Your organization saves money because it can simultaneously train multiple groups, whether from different agencies or multinational forces. In live, virtual and constructive (LVC) training environments, Forcepoint SimShield provides secure interoperability across networks at multiple classification levels, which allows the most realistic and beneficial training exercises for U.S. and Coalition troops by enabling training assets at different security classifications to fully communicate and securely interact, creating the most realistic training exercises possible.
Testing costs are also reduced through earlier detection and correction of issues and errors. For example, in the Research, Development, Test & Evaluation (RDT&E) environment, Forcepoint SimShield allows tests on distributed components to be performed in near real-time and analyzed in a matter of hours. This drastically reduces testing cycle time, which provides significant financial benefits.
Permits secure connectivity between classified simulators and the rest of the simulation
Provides fully automated, predictable, controlled and audited two-way communication and sanitization of events across security domains
Enables the interconnection of RDT&E networks at different sensitivity levels, which moves system tests earlier in the lifecycle
Utilizes a user-friendly interface for creation of classification filter rules
Enables interoperability between previously discrete testing and training activities, thereby eliminating redundancies and costs
Natively supports for Distributive Interactive Simulation (DIS), High Level Architecture (HLA), Test and Training Enabling Architecture (TENA), Real-Time Transport (RTP) and MPEG2-TS protocols
Allows the use of object model or protocol changes without affecting security posture
