Fortress's FC-X network encryptors perform high-performance inline encryption delivering over gigabit throughput. The FC-X enables large-scale networks to secure communications from thousands of wireless users in an enterprise WLAN or over high-speed optical links. The FC-X processes packets at a high rate with low latency, satisfying the rigorous demands of large VoIP deployments, a rapidly growing application for wireless communications.
Built for maximum flexibility, Fortress Inline Network Encryptors provide a secure wired or wireless connection for the network and are interoperable with Wi-Fi, WiMAX, Free Space Optics, Satellite and Military RF. As an overlay solution, the encryptors can be plugged into any environment, regardless of topology, infrastructure vendor, or wireless technology used.
Fortress FC-X Inline Network Encryptors use hardware crypto FPGA and hardware TRNG to provide gigabit performance and low latency for data and VoIP applications.
All Fortress products offer the most standard, interoperable and compliant security that is certified to FIPS 140-2. Fortress is a leader in secure wireless networking offering NSA Suite B cryptography and IPsec on all its products. Fortress products advanced security and rich PKI infrastructure are unmatched in the industry.

Fortress products deliver much higher performance by using a hardware crypto FPGA that enables fast, deterministic performance to protect against timing attacks. Our hardware-based true random number generator (TRNG) is especially critical for devices that do not have user interaction from which to collect entropy to reliably generate random numbers. A fast, reliable hardware implementation is critical in supporting real-time applications such as encrypted voice and video, as well as scaling to handle increasing application throughput and bandwidth needs. Fortress' cryptographic implementation has passed rigorous examination and been approved by NIST.
The NSA Suite B initiative is a common set of cryptographic algorithms to create products that meet the widest range of US Government needs. Suite B Cryptography is built on COTS information-assurance products using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and is under evaluation by the NSA to protect information up to the SECRET level. Fortress products are NSA Suite B capable and can be upgraded where approval is achieved.
