BiTMICRO RAMPART Distributed End-to-End Embedded Cyber Security, composed of RAMPART Embedded Cyber Security Modules and Management Software, deliver a unique hardware-based security solution with seamless NIST ratified and FIPS approved AES-256 encryption suitable for data that is stored and/or transmitted from remote or mobile land, sea, air, and space military platforms. Data on remote and mobile platforms is encrypted as it is captured and stored on RAMPART Cyber Secure Solid State Storage Modules. Data is encrypted while stored on the RAMPART Module and remains encrypted as it is transmitted and written to another RAMPART equipped host. With RAMPART Distributed Cyber Security, the transmitted data cannot be used or altered except by an authorized user or device. With RAMPART Distributed Embedded End-to-End Cyber Security, data remains secure through any public or secure network, link, interface, bus, or memory.  Even if remote or mobile systems are compromised or transmitted data is intercepted, it remains encrypted, and thus, indecipherable.

RAMPART Cyber Secure Solid State Storage Modules are rugged, compact, low power, and high capacity storage modules that are easy to integrate and centrally manage. They are designed for remote and mobile applications operating in harsh and hostile environments.  Data is stored on military grade solid-state storage with NVMe interface, using a variety of NAND types, from large geometry SLC to high capacity 3D TLC NAND and can support up to 16TB of data.

The RAMPART infrastructure and modules are managed by BiTMICRO RAMPART Cyber Secure Management Software.  It is a web-based, configurable framework that is language-neutral, platform-neutral, and extensible.

BiTMICRO is actively engaging with customers interested in learning more about RAMPART Distributed Cyber Security.
