ADVA Optical Networking Achieves Over 200 Installations of Encryption Technology
Hundreds of Tbit/s of Mission-Critical Data Protected by ADVA ConnectGuard™
Network encryption on the optical layer is as powerful as it is reliable so data integrity with regard to latency and throughput is guaranteed.
Designed to internationally recognized security standards, ADVA Optical Networking's innovative optical encryption technology has been successfully integrated in over 200 networks in just two years. It brings a new level of resilience and security to DCI networks through its dynamic key exchange and strictly separated encryption domain management platform. A wide variety of protocols are supported, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand and it’s the only fully integrated solution able to scale to 100Gbit/s. ADVA ConnectGuard™ creates none of the problems with latency and performance degradation that come from other encryption methods. Network encryption on the optical layer is as powerful as it is reliable so data integrity with regard to latency and throughput is guaranteed. It's easy to operate and also highly efficient with the lowest cost-per-bit of any network encryption solution available today.
"The rapid adoption of ADVA ConnectGuard™ comes at a time when cloud-based services are booming, meaning more data traveling outside the enterprise walls," commented Stephan Rettenberger, VP, marketing, ADVA Optical Networking. "Meanwhile, organized criminals are increasingly employing hackers to target the most valuable and vulnerable networks. Eavesdropping on optical transport is no longer difficult or expensive. Techniques can involve splicing optical fiber to intercept transmissions or even contactless methods to hack into cables. For criminals, it's an easy opportunity – fast, anonymous and without borders. But for businesses, every data breach brings enormous cost, not least through damage to hard-earned reputations. Network operators everywhere are turning to ADVA ConnectGuard™ to ensure valuable data remains safe and vital applications continue to run. It encrypts at the critically important physical layer. It provides permanent monitoring. It's the ideal solution for optimum network security."
