Supporting all common audio-visual and IT formats including 4K video resolution, Thinklogical products provide true "any-to-any" switching capabilities that enable instant situational awareness, improve cyber security, reduce the insider threat, and simplify management of multi-classification information through a single IA-accredited matrix switching system.
Accreditations and Certifications:
The proliferation of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) information is radically changing the landscape of the defence and intelligence sector. Nations have migrated to a strategy of information superiority to protect against a broad range of threats, whether they be asymmetrical, cyber, nuclear or mass armies. A significant effort has been directed at collecting information through satellites, sensors, unmanned vehicles and the monitoring of social media and other real-time information sources. Much of this information is video. Ultimately, this video information needs to be processed and analysed in a manner that not only helps to understand and respond to an event, but also prevent it.
The processing and analysis of the information most often happens in a secure command and control operations centre, often with joint and coalition forces (across branches as well as countries) working together. The current focus of the design of these centres is 'Instant Situational Awareness;' that is, 'how can I use the ISR information sources available to me to give me a full and instant picture of the situation?' Today's global environment demands instantaneous understanding and action.
Technology is rapidly evolving to create Instant Situational Awareness. Thinklogical is leading this evolution by enabling, securing and simplifying the management and distribution of multiple sources of video-rich information with multiple classifications on a single, high-performance infrastructure.
Mainstream legacy AV (audio-visual) and IT technologies are not efficient in delivering multiple sources of information when they are at multiple classifications. This greatly impairs the productivity of the individual analyst, as well as the ability for individual analysts or teams to collaborate. Thinklogical's uniquely secure KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extension and switching solution resolves this issue, creating a highly-efficient and flexible video and data distribution environment where any source of information may be instantaneously displayed at any end point, while giving the administrator the ability to restrict a source from being displayed as the need arises. An information assurance (IA) accredited, commercial off the shelf (COTS) system, Thinklogical is the technology that is being used across the world in hundreds of MOD and IC command and control centres today.
No other company has the Information Assurance (IA) security certifications that Thinklogical has for these types of mid-to-large scale KVM products, because they do not have an architecture that isolates information as it travels through their switch. This isolation allows Thinklogical solutions to carry multiple sources of information that are multiple classifications (unclassified, confidential, coalition, secret, top secret, etc.) over a single system. This unique capability allows defence and intelligence organizations to greatly reduce the amount of technology and infrastructure required to manage this multi-classification information in applications such as command and control and operations centres, and at the same time, actually increases the level of security and protection of that information within those same facilities.
Organizations would need to invest in, maintain, and manage multiple separate, parallel and air-gapped data infrastructures - one system for each classification - to accomplish what Thinklogical can do with a single system using Secure Restricted Switching. Thinklogical saves time, money and complexity, but more importantly, it allows these defence and intelligence organisations to more quickly share information among teams and be more flexible to address rapidly-changing mission requirements.
Simplifying the management of multiple classifications of information is a critical need in the defence and intelligence communities, as threats from outside the organisation such as cyber-attacks increase in frequency and complexity. Reducing the threat from a 'trusted' insider, or an accidental data breach, is just as important, and Thinklogical KVM technology protects against that as well by enabling the separation of data sources from user access via back-racking of computers and servers.
Thinklogical helps organisations make faster and better-informed decisions by delivering accurate data quickly and securely to the people and groups who need it most. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or schedule a demonstration.
