Edge Network Security solutions

Connected controllers and sensors are redefining operations across cities, bases and battlefields. As the number of devices increase, so does the threat of a cybersecurity attack. Ultra I&C offers certified IT network segmentation equipment to secure data while protecting devices and infrastructure.

FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program), FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002) and HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) requires FIPS-140-2 validated encryption for all cryptographic functions. Ultra I&C’s edge network solutions meet these requirements and more with the following certifications:

  • FIPS 140-2 Level 2
  • Common criteria (NIAP VID #11080 & #11103)
  • Commercial Solution for Classified (CSfC)
  • WiFi & FCC
  • MIL-STD-810E

Ultra Intelligence & Communications’ Edge Network Security solutions are designed to secure information at the highest level from Defence to Critical National Infrastructure to Commercial Assets. Ultra also provides support services for both architecture and deployment.


Award-winning hardware firewall designed to protect critical networks from vulnerable edge devices.  Low SWAP, MIL-STD-810E ruggedisation and power over Ethernet (POE) capabilities enable use in both enterprise and tactical environments.
