Thinklogical Launches Federal Advisory Board, Appoints the Honorable Arthur l. Money and Peter Marino as Founding Members
Noted experts in Defense to assist company’s continued expansion in the US Federal Sector
Milford, CT – November 6, 2012 — Thinklogical, the leading provider of secure, high performance, resilient fiber-based KVM & Video routing systems, today announced the formation of its Federal Advisory Board. Founding members include the Honorable Arthur L. Money, Chairman of the United States National Security Agency (NSA) Technology Advisory Board and Peter Marino, Chairman of the United States National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Advisory Group. The primary mission of Thinklogical’s Federal Advisory Board is to deepen the company’s relationships within the military, intelligence and homeland security communities.
Thinklogical’s powerful fiber optic based audio, video and peripheral routing systems enable multi-domain isolation and control of key computing resources and their associated networks, while empowering rich collaboration capabilities across authorized functional groups and organizations. The company’s USA designed and manufactured VX Series routers are the only fiber optic based KVM and video routers accredited to The Common Criteria, EAL4 and TEMPEST.
“I am impressed with Thinklogical’s innovative approach to routing and securing high value content,” said Money. “Securely routing disparate content sources across a myriad of destinations is a daunting task. Thinklogical delivers this capability today – on warships, in command & control centers, and as part of our UAV program. In the realm of high-performance fiber optic routers, Thinklogical’s technology stands alone.”
“Thinklogical is highly regarded in the Federal market,” added Marino. “Their products deliver the unrivaled performance and robust security underlying a broad range of strategic government applications. I’m proud to be a founding member of the Advisory Board, and look forward to helping Federal Government users understand how the company’s products uniquely empower secure, collaborative activities.”
“We are honored to welcome Art and Peter as founding members of the newly established Thinklogical Federal Advisory Board,” said Joe Pajer, President and CEO of Thinklogical. “We are growing very fast as a company, spearheaded by our tremendous success in the military, intelligence and homeland security sectors of the U.S. Federal Government. I am very much looking forward to working with Art and Peter to raise the awareness of the security, performance and resiliency benefits that Thinklogical brings to government SCIFs, command and control centers, collaboration facilities and NOCs/SOCs.”
