InfoGuard strengthens partnership with ADVA Optical

InfoGuard : 10 September, 2008  (Company News)
Multilink encryption for network transmissions to be marketed throughout Europe through ADVA Optical Networking
Information security specialist InfoGuard and ADVA Optical Networking, strengthen their strategic cooperation focusing on protecting high-speed networks. InfoGuard's MG10 multi-link encryption platform will be marketed throughout Europe with immediate effect. Within the framework of a technology partnership for the development of encryption technology for fibre-optic lines, both companies have harmonised and certified through extensive testing their product portfolios. InfoGuard's Multilink Encryption is the world's first security solution capable of encrypting up to 10 Ethernet, Fibre Channel and FICON signals over a single link.

InfoGuard specialises in making networks tamper-proof in highly sensitive environments such as banking, industry and services. The InfoGuard MG10 allows the secure transmission of business-critical information using AES 256 (Advanced Encryption Standard) encryption to and from distributed sites, server farms as well as backup and disaster recovery infrastructures. Such networks include Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN), over which multimedia data are transmitted in real time, Wide Area Networks (WAN) interlinking multiple local networks via long-distance lines, and Storage Area Networks (SAN) connecting computer centres via direct links to separate storage facilities. Using the InfoGuard MG10, up to 10 different signals across any combination of Ethernet, Fibre Channel and FICON protocols can be securely transmitted over a single STM-64 link. This encryption solution, which accommodates data rates of up to 10 Gigabits per second, complies with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 security requirements.

'ADVA Optical Networking is Europe's market leader in interconnecting computer centres over optical infrastructure networks using optical multiplexer systems, while InfoGuard is at the forefront in terms of experience in high-speed network encryption,' explains Thomas Meier, InfoGuard's Managing Director and Head of Channel Distribution. 'Therefore, a partnership between the two companies is a logical step from which both partners and our customers will benefit, and our customers now have access to a perfectly homogeneous security environment for high-speed networks.'

'Corporate customers expect perfect technologies dedicated to the transport, backup and storage of their critical data,' adds Christian Illmer, Head of Business Development at ADVA Optical Networking and in charge of corporate customers. 'We supply the industry with extremely high throughput, high availability, low runtime fiber-optic-based transmission technology that is also low in power consumption and small in size. Recently, encryption and data security have significantly increased in priority, and we are responding to that through our partnership. InfoGuard provides the ideal solution for data encryption in the WAN segment. Their compact design, reliability and high throughput optimally match our technology.'
