Zayo Group Holdings announced an Encryption-as-a-Service offering over its fiber network.
Zayo’s Encryption as a Service, which leverages Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption solution, provides managed wavelength services configured with 10G wire speed encryption at Layer 1, with additional higher speed options in progress.
Zayo’s initial customers include a leading global bank using the service to encrypt credit card transaction data, enabling them to maintain compliance with international security standards.
“Data security continues to be one of the top concerns for global industries, an issue that’s been intensified by recent high-profile attacks in healthcare, retail, banks, hospitality and entertainment,” said Dennis Kyle, senior vice president of Strategic Marketing and Alliances at Zayo. “Our encryption solution is quick and easy to provision and provides high levels of protection without sacrificing network performance. It’s another way we are providing a critical layer of security to protect our customers.”
