Internal Encryption?

I have a customer who is renewing a contract with a bank an they have gotten some suggestions that are recommended and I do not know what they want with this one. Can someone please explain this and some possible solutions?

Suggested Requirement = Consider encrypting data using a strong, commercially-proven algorithm, while in transport on your internal network and in storage.

I understand the requirements that they listed but this. It is not that I do not understand. I know what they want but is it possible to encrypt data transfer on an internal network? What is used to do this? The network consistes of 3 PC's and a 2000 server. Not a domain, this is a workgroup setup. Hopefully I will be able to get a Small Business Server in there soon to set up a domain envrionment.

Thank experts. This one has just stumped me for some reason.

What kind of internal data? and by what means? The 3PCs talk to Windows 2000 server and if you can explain what kind of traffic, we may be in a better understanding.

Windows supports IPSEC which would meet the above requirement.  It's standard with Windows (i.e. doesn't require 3rd party tools) and fairly easy to setup.

Thanks all
jhance found what I was looking for but I am splitting the points because you both jocasio and jhance provided me info for what I ws looking for.
I did not know that you could use IPsec on interdomain traffic.

Rajesh - I am guessing that by the suggested requirement that they mean all network traffic. The 3 pc's users use Microsoft Access to sort data and store everything on their 2000 server. That is all the traffic. besides printing out reports.
