Network Integrity Systems, Inc., specializes in solutions for the protection of secure networks and critical infrastructures. It was founded in 2003 in Conover, N.C., USA, by optical engineers and management personnel from Corning Cable Systems and Norscan, Inc.
In 2002, Norscan, a leader in telephony cable system monitoring products, addressed a requirement from a systems integrator working with the Air Force to develop an improved alarmed carrier PDS solution for protecting fiber optic networks in The Pentagon. This resulted in the development of the Interceptor™ Optical Network Security System, which meets National Security Agency requirements for the protection of fiber-optic data and telecommunications lines transmitting national security information. Network Integrity Systems received subsequentfunding from the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) and the U.S. Air Force Information Warfare Battlelab which accelerated technology development and made enhancements to the Interceptor product line.
Today, Interceptor is the only commercially available alarmed carrier PDS developed under Department of Defense guidance and financing specifically for information assurance and IT security applications. It has been deployed by the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security and all branches of the United States military. In addition to protecting classified networks and national security information, Interceptor has also been deployed to facilitate increased collaboration and information sharing for anti-terrorism activities and to ensure continuity of operations (COOP) and availability of command and control networks, as well as critical infrastructures across the United States.
Network Integrity Systems is a founding partner of Communication Supply Corporation’s Secure(it) program – focused on enhancing the security and availability of high assurance networks and facilities throughout the Department of Defense and federal government.
