Secure Messaging

Safe, reliable, and ready when you are

Building on decades of technology innovation and proven program experience, Northrop Grumman is the industry leader in secure messaging systems.

Today, we design, deploy, and maintain accreditable systems that process the most sensitive data of the defense and intelligence communities. We are the only company that can deliver systems that send secure messages from one source to many addresses located across multiple security enclaves. And when the action heats up, we'll be there to assure secure, reliable messaging. Northrop Grumman personnel have supplied onsite field support during most of America's recent combat operations, including Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Providing full, life-cycle solutions, our capabilities include software development, systems engineering and integration, network design and management, security, training, help desk support, maintenance, and complete field services. We offer extensive experience in integrating commercial and government-owned software to achieve mission requirements, both tactical and strategic.
