LINTHICUM, USA: Ciena Corp. nd SafeNet announced a partnership to jointly sell high-speed, low-latency Ethernet link encryption services for commercial and government networks. Ciena’s Carrier Ethernet and Packet-Optical platforms, and SafeNet’s Ethernet Encryptor solutions, have been extensively tested for interoperability and provide assured, optimized and secure Layer 2 encryption services at speeds of up to 10 Gb/s, reducing the cost and complexity of protecting critical business information and intellectual property.
According to a recent study from the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), 44 percent of the publicly disclosed data breaches in the US during 2011 affected the Government and Armed Services sector. The combined Ciena and SafeNet solutions serve to secure commercial and government networks by mitigating the threat of security breaches and data theft. Powered by advanced encryption technology that is specifically designed to work at Layer 2, the solutions offer assured service delivery with the economics, determinism and low-latency of a switched Ethernet infrastructure.
SafeNet is a Technology Partner in Ciena’s BizConnect partner program. Ciena subject matter experts will discuss the new encryption services and SafeNet alliance at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) TechNet Land Forces, Southwest 2012 conference, March 27-29 in Tucson, Ariz.
