ADVA Intros ConnectGuard Encryption for DCI and Ethernet Links

ADVA Optical Networking introduced its ConnectGuard security solution for service providers and enterprises. Two variants are offered:

  • ConnectGuard Optical for the ADVA FSP 3000 provides robust transport layer security and is ideal for data center interconnection applications that need advanced protection for the transportation of enormous data volumes. It provides a transparent, wire-speed service for securing mission-critical data and incorporates a strictly separated encryption domain manager to ensure compliance with the most stringent regulatory demands. With a protocol-agnostic approach, ADVA ConnectGuard™ Optical can transport all storage area network protocols, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand with line speeds of up to 100 Gbps. As part of the ADVA FSP 3000, it eliminates the need for stand-alone security equipment, simplifying network operations and reducing the overall cost of data protection.
  • ConnectGuard Ethernet for the ADVA FSP 150 delivers Ethernet layer security and is critical for protecting data as it travels across third-party packet networks. It enables scalable and secure Ethernet connectivity between locations on top of unprotected Carrier Ethernet networks. 

“Today’s networks are more vulnerable than ever before. The frequency of attacks has never been higher and the ease of data interception has never been simpler,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. “By encrypting data in motion we’re providing the strongest protection possible. Make no mistake, ConnectGuard is a line in the sand for network protection.”
