Secure, Cost Effective Access to Multiple Independent Levels of Security
WHAT IS SECUREVIEW?
SecureView is the premier Cross-Domain Access Solution developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). SecureView provides users with the ability to access Multiple Independent Levels of Security (MILS) on a single workstation. When used with the Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC), SecureView provides secure remote access to classified networks, enabling telework from home or on the road.
HOW DOES SECUREVIEW WORK?
SecureView is a flexible solution which provides secure access through a combination of traditional and leading-edge connectivity solutions. An orgranization’s existing network infrastructure can be merged seamlessly to deploy SecureView workstations – thereby minimizing deployment cost, complexity, and disruption. If new or additional networks are needed, SecureView can connect to them using Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnels over the existing infrastructure, including unclassified Internet, while maintaining the required separation and protection of the classified networks. SecureView integrates seamlessly with existing Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to enable quick and easy access to network resources. Unlike other MILS solutions that require extensive infrastructure upgrades or investment as part of their deployment, SecureView can often be deployed with minimal change to network infrastructure – drastically increasing cost savings and the speed of deployment.
THE SECUREVIEW DIFFERENCE
SecureView was built from its inception to provide unparalleled security, agilty, and performance for IC and DoD workstations while ALSO minimizing the total
cost of ownership. Best of all, SecureView is government-off-the-shelf (GOTS) technology, which keeps the IC and DoD from getting locked into a proprietary or single-vendor solution that would limit their flexibility and scalability. Furthermore, lifecycle costs are kept low for ongoing support, training ans software patches or upgrades.
In 2010, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) developed SecureView® to answer an important national requirement. The Office of the Director of National
Intelligence tasked AFRL with developing a secure workstation meeting the following criteria:
- Provide the Intelligence Community (IC) with unparalleled security and protection against data exfiltration
- Support high-performance applications
- Streamline IT infrastructure requirements for classified networks
- Enable rapid provisioning & deployment of the solution across the IC and Department of Defense
- Ensure agility to meet future requirements
Organizations have the ability to remotely manage all of their SecureView workstations across their enterprise. The SecureView Management Server (SVMS) enables mission sites to remotely deploy and manage virtual machines (VMs) on individual workstaitons or by groups of workstations. Additionally, configuring and/or upgrading the workstations is simple using the SVMS. New VMs can be created and seamlessly deployed to establish new Communities of Interest or to support new domains.
SecureView MOSAIC provides users with a secure and seamless windows environment to view information on a single desktop for multiple security domains and network classifications. The benefit is a tremendous increase in personal proficiency without compromising security or creating any potential vulenerabilities in SecureView.
As a software solution, SecureView is extremely flexible and can support many different use cases and run on many different hardware platforms, including desktops for office/data center environments, laptops for mobile/deployed scenerios, and even tablets for senior leadership applications.
