Data encryption over fibre optic networks

InfoGuard : 12 November, 2007  (New Product)
High speed network data transfers can be achieved without fear of tapping using SonetGuard encryption for 10 Gigabit fibre networks
InfoGuard launches its SonetGuard hardware security solution ensuring tap-proof data transfer over SDH high-speed networks at data rates of up to 10 Gigabits per second. SonetGuard encrypts information without performance loss and can be easily integrated into existing network infrastructures.

Fibre optic networks are indispensable in today's business world. However, if the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information are not fully guaranteed, users of such networks are exposed to a threat of possibly existential proportions. By encrypting critical core networks companies can now meet new regulatory compliances like PCI, and protect themselves from potential devastating customer trust and possible financial ruin. Encrypting networks has been part of the 'best practice' with Swiss banks and a matter of national security for Governments and military for many years.

To complement its successfully launched EtherGuard security solution for 1 and 10-Gigabit-Ethernet networks, InfoGuard now also provides an encryption solution for all-round secure information exchange over optical SDH/Sonet networks.

SonetGuard - High-Performance Encryption for Point-to-Point Links:.

* SDH/SONET data encryption using AES at up to 10 Gigabits.
* 100% encryption performance and minimal latency.
* Easy integrationn into existing networks.
* Minimal maintenance and central management.
* Developed and manufactured in Switzerland.

SonetGuard is InfoGuard's 2nd encryption solution for optical networks up to 10 Gigabits per second. Their top performance at 100% encryption throughput and extremely low latency make it possible to use the devices even in time-critical applications and in heavy-load links. SonetGuard covers the entire range of WAN links up to OC-192/STM-64.

Data encryption is done fully transparently and without any performance loss, using AES encryption at a key length of 256 Bits. The security architecture meets the strictest requirements in accordance with FIPS 140-2 Level 3.

The device can be easily managed locally or via its internal user interface, via a graphic PC user interface or remotely via secure SSH access. SonetGuard is designed explicitly for long-term use, requiring virtually no maintenance. In order to guarantee uninterrupted service at all times, the device is equipped with a redundant power supply.

A Swiss Company, InfoGuard guarantees that its products meet the highest quality standards and that the implementation of your security features is performed in absolute independence. All security-relevant modules are developed and manufactured by InfoGuard's certified security specialists in Switzerland.
