Munich, Germany. September 29, 2015.
ADVA Optical Networkingannounced today that its ConnectGuardTMsolution has
been deployed in more than 200 data center interconnect (DCI) networks around
the world. Engineered to provide the most complete data protection
possible,ADVA ConnectGuardTMis being used across all industries to safeguard
hundreds of Tbit/s of sensitive data. Enterprises and service providers
across the globe have invested in ADVA Optical Networking's unique technology
in response to the sudden surge in cyberattacks and the changing legal
environment for data protection. Fierce demand for the security solution has
come from all areas including governments, financial institutions, the
healthcare industry and communication service providers. It's now also
complemented by ADVA ConnectGuardTMEthernet for secure connectivity to
cloud-based data-center resources.

"In recent months, we've seen a string of major data breaches in the news with
valuable information being targeted by spies, hacktivists and organized
cybercriminals," said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking.
"It's now impossible not to be aware of the rapid increase in cybercrime so
it's no surprise that security has become a key concern for every industry
vertical. Enterprises and service providers realize they have to take a
comprehensive approach to safeguarding data. They know that truly secure
communication means protecting information beyond the walls of the data
center, securing data in-flight so that it's safe from attacks at the
physical network layer. Customers are demanding secure DCI, safe links
between premises and protection for data as it moves into the cloud. We're
seeing such incredible demand for ADVA ConnectGuardTMbecause it really is the
only solution with the complete architecture for total security."

Designed to internationally recognized security standards, ADVA Optical
Networking's innovative optical encryption technology has been successfully
integrated in over 200 networks in just two years. It brings a new level of
resilience and security to DCI networks through its dynamic key exchange and
strictly separated encryption domain management platform. A wide variety of
protocols are supported, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand and
it's the only fully integrated solution able to scale to 100Gbit/s. ADVA
ConnectGuardTMcreates none of the problems with latency and performance
degradation that come from other encryption methods. Network encryption on
the optical layer is as powerful as it is reliable so data integrity with
regard to latency and throughput is guaranteed. It's easy to operate and also
highly efficient with the lowest cost-per-bit of any network encryption
solution available today.

"The rapid adoption of ADVA ConnectGuardTMcomes at a time when cloud-based
services are booming, meaning more data traveling outside the enterprise
walls," commented Stephan Rettenberger, VP, marketing, ADVA Optical
Networking. "Meanwhile, organized criminals are increasingly employing
hackers to target the most valuable and vulnerable networks. Eavesdropping on
optical transport is no longer difficult or expensive. Techniques can involve
splicing optical fiber to intercept transmissions or even contactless methods
to hack into cables. For criminals, it's an easy opportunity - fast,
anonymous and without borders. But for businesses, every data breach brings
enormous cost, not least through damage to hard-earned reputations. Network
operators everywhere are turning to ADVA ConnectGuardTMto ensure valuable
data remains safe and vital applications continue to run. It encrypts at the
critically important physical layer. It provides permanent monitoring. It's
the ideal solution for optimum network security."
