GuardStack Compound is a network-oriented open-transport infrastructure and enables flexible integration of various access and transmission media. This ultimately leads to an environment in which networks of information flows can be achieved independent of available access technology.

All applications and data belonging to the information security domain are at the user’s disposal as long as the user carries a GuardStack secured device. Relevant data is presented to the tactical user, tailored to the role and task, enabling the user to carry out operational duties as effectively and efficiently as possible. This secure information availability is key to the Network Centric Warfare paradigm.

GuardStack Compound is a highly secure, dynamic and self-organizing communications infrastructure with simplified user-interface and provides the foundation for future-proof critical communication at the far edge.
