Optical Encryption uses revolutionary technology to offer Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS)-certified encryption of your in-flight data from end-point to end-point. Our easy-to-implement solution offers maximum protection and throughput and optimizes latency by encrypting all of your in-flight data at the optical level—regardless of where it’s generated.

Whether you have a 10Gbps or 100Gbps connection, you’ll maintain total control over your security parameters and keys. And since it can easily be added to our portfolio of infrastructure solutions, you won’t need to purchase, deploy, or manage costly new equipment.

Key Benefits

  • Security: Maximize your security with industry-leading technology that encrypts in-flight data from end-point to end-point at Layer 1.

  • Flexibility: Our solution is protocol agnostic, allowing you to avoid cumbersome configurations for multiple protocols. Optical Encryption can be ordered as a new service or as an upgrade to existing wavelengths, both without standalone encryption boxes—keeping both capital and operating expenses low.

  • Efficiency: Encryption management runs out-of-band so no overhead is added. You also receive full line rate performance at all frame sizes and protocols with minimal latency impact.

  • Control: You can upgrade at will to keep up with technology or align with changing requirements. You maintain your own security protocols and keys, and a dedicated management tool gives you complete control over all your security parameters.
