Want your confidential computer data to stay confidential? Then a Siemens tempest computer is your perfect solution. Beyond conventional security and encryption technology, the tempest computer protects against electronic eavesdropping. Just imagine: without this protection, it is possible to read your data through the electromagnetic radiation from 1000 meters (3280 feet).
All electrical devices emit electromagnetic energy, which is then spread far afield by the atmosphere and conducting objects. As these compromising emissions spread through the environment, certain types of receivers easily intercepted them. Since the term tempest is synonymous with emission security, Siemens appropriately named its secure computer the SITEMP tempest PC.
