Ciena, SafeNet Team Up

LINTHICUM, Md. -- Ciena® Corporation (NASDAQ: CIEN - News), the network specialist, and SafeNet, a global leader in data protection, today 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.

“Encryption, which has long been the preferred method for securing the most critical data assets, is in ever-increasing demand as a result of today’s compliance regulations, data breach notification requirements, and increased dependence on cloud computing. The combination of SafeNet’s encryption with Ciena’s Packet-Optical technology can help organizations process this increased volume of cryptographic data with the highest degree of security and the lowest latency possible,” said Jim Summers, corporate vice president and general manager of SafeNet Government Solutions.
