The White House issued a National Security Memorandum to improve the cybersecurity of National Security, Department of Defense, and Intelligence Community Systems on January 19, 2022. This Memo requires that National Security Systems (NSS) employ the network cybersecurity measures that are equivalent to or exceed those required of federal civilian networks in Executive Order (EO) 140281 and gives agencies 180 days to implement multifactor authentication and encryption for NSS data-at-rest and data-in-transit per guidance in Section 3 of EO 14028.
Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies (TCT) is a trusted, U.S. provider of cybersecurity solutions dedicated to U.S. Federal Government. We offer robust authentication, data at rest encryption, and data in transit encryption solutions that address the requirements outlined in the Memo and EO 14028. Our solutions reduce the risks associated with the most critical attack vectors and address the most stringent encryption, key management, and access control requirements. In addition to our core solutions developed and manufactured in the U.S. specifically for the Government, we sell and support industry-leading, third-party commercial-off-the-shelf solutions. To mitigate the risks associated with procuring data security solutions developed outside of the U.S, we operate under a Proxy Agreement with Defense Counterintelligence & Security Agency (DCSA) for Foreign Ownership, Control & Influence (FOCI) and a Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) National Security Agreement.
As a long-established provider of cybersecurity solutions currently deployed within National Security, Department of Defense, and Intelligence Community Systems, Thales TCT strongly supports the Biden Administration’s efforts to raise the bar on cybersecurity. All Thales TCT products currently support the recommended Commercial National Security Algorithms (CNSA) and are being enhanced with quantum resistant algorithms.
Thales TCT stands ready to provide solutions which meet the requirements of the Memo. We are prepared to provide industry input as the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) and federal agencies review and update policies as directed in the Memo.
From traditional high assurance and commercial-off-the-shelf authentication solutions to first-of-a-kind hardware security module-based identity credentials, Thales TCT offers the most secure, certificate-based authentication platforms available to the U.S. Federal Government.
Our High Assurance Authentication products are currently approved for use within National Security Systems.

Introduction to Thales' CipherTrust Enterprise Key Management Solutions
Thales TCT offers a data discovery and classification solution that enables agencies to get complete visibility of sensitive data with efficient data discovery, classification, and risk analysis across cloud, big data, and traditional environments.
CipherTrust Data Discovery and Classification locates regulated sensitive data, both structured and unstructured, across the cloud, big data, and traditional data stores. A single pane of glass delivers understanding of sensitive data and its risks, enabling better decisions about closing security gaps, prioritizing remediation actions, and securing your cloud transformation and third-party data sharing.
Thales TCT offers network encryption solutions that provide a single platform to encrypt everywhere— from network traffic between data centers and the headquarters to backup and disaster recovery sites, whether on premises or in the cloud.
Thales TCT Network Encryptors leverage Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), Quantum Random Number Generation (QRNG) capabilities, and implement Quantum Resistant Algorithms for future-proof data security.
