Before the TACLANE-MultiBook, multiple computers were needed to provide full separation of classified and unclassified information or connect to the commercial Internet and secure military and government networks.  "For the first time, these specialized workers can merge real life with work life using the TACLANE-MultiBook," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.  "To get the same level of information security that the new computer provides, users would need three or more information security devices, at twice the cost of the TACLANE-MultiBook, and still not have the MultiBook's mobility."The TACLANE-MultiBook helps to ensure that sensitive information is not compromised if the computer is lost or stolen.  Considered a Cryptographic High Valued Product (CHVP), the MultiBook has less stringent handling requirements than a controlled cryptographic item (CCI) and enables secure interoperability with U.S. government and military networks.Available with a number of options, the TACLANE-MultiBook can be ordered today.  The list price starts at $5,790.  The MultiBook is also available on the GSA schedule.  For a complete list of features, benefits and specifications visit, www.gdc4s.com/MultiBook.  For additional information or to order the MultiBook call INFOSEC sales & support at 1-888-897-3148 or email Infosec@gdc4s.com.
