Network security

Data has never been so vulnerable

The fierce growth in cybercrime puts data at greater risk than ever before. Together with the growing cost of data breaches, this makes the intelligent use of data protection technologies increasingly necessary for organizations of all sizes. What's more, the rapid adoption of cloud-based services and the resulting migration of mission-critical data outside of enterprise walls are raising significant security concerns. Secure high-performance connectivity solutions are urgently needed to ensure data remains safe and intact. The key question is: How can data in motion be effectively and reliably protected when traveling across today's global terabit networks?

Big data, big challenges

Encryption is the most effective way to increase data security and safeguard external network connections against unauthorized access. Network infrastructure solutions providing secure and scalable connectivity between points of presence and cloud locations are therefore at the heart of all data security architecture. Catering for all network security needs, we offer field-proven and widely deployed optical and packed-based solutions for secure site connectivity and access to the cloud. The ADVA ConnectGuard™ technology portfolio is designed to safeguard traffic on any connectivity network layer, ensuring confidentiality and integrity as well as the highest transmission performance.

Complete protection

Our ConnectGuard™ security toolbox has been specifically engineered to encrypt and assure your data wherever it’s traveling across the network. To achieve such comprehensive protection, our data security technology is composed of three distinct parts that encrypt data in motion across every network layer. ConnectGuard™ Optical safeguards high-bitrate data center interconnect networks at line-rate; ConnectGuard™ Ethernet protects and assures Ethernet point-to-point and VPN connections; while ConnectGuard™ Cloud enables server-hosted virtualized encryption with far less latency than IPSec.
