Engage Ships Gigabit Speed Network Encryption Appliance
AES Encryption for Ethernet at Gigabit Speeds with Jumbo Packet Support
for both Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint Network Architectures


Aptos, CA. – September 17, 2009 Engage Communication today has announced the BlackDoor GIG Encryptor, the latest in their line of packet encryption products for both private and public network security.  The Black-Door provides information assurance without requiring new system software or having to upgrade existing network edge devices.

The BlackDoor GIG enables enterprises to add AES security to Ethernet packet interfaces without having to employ high paid IT consultants and disrupt their network edge hardware with upgrades, reconfiguration and add-on encryption accelerators.  The Black-Door is deployable with basic Internet Protocol knowledge.

The Engage BlackDoor GIG Encryptor offers customers a new level of Gigabit speeds for securing point to point or multi-point Ethernet networks. The BlackDoorGIG Encryptor’s Ethernet interfaces have independently configurable MTUs that are able to handle up to 9000 byte JUMBO Ethernet frames in real-time.  The AES based encryption algorithm offer industry standard security levels at Layers: 2/VLAN/MPLS/3.


The BlackDoor GIG Ethernet Encryptor meets the new security requirements and reduces overall network complexity for:

    • Department of Defense - Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines
    • National, State and Local Governments
    • Public Safety Networks
    • Homeland Security
    • Multi-Site Commercial Enterprises
    • Banking and Financial Institutions
    • Health Care Industries
    • Natural Gas & Electric Power Utility Companies
    • Transportation Agencies
    • Closed Circuit TV

BlackDoor GIG Encryption enables Enterprises to achieve the stringent information security standards that are mandated by a variety of legislative actions, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Sarbanes-Oxley, California Database Security Breach Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, EU Data Protection Directive and the Federal Information Security Management Act.

BlackDoor GIG Encryption enables Enterprises to prevent network attacks that seek to obtain or manipulate their most vital or profitable sources of information including:

∙ Customer Records

∙ Intellectual Property

∙ Marketing Plans 

∙ Employee Files

∙ Accounting Forecasts

∙ Sales Strategies

∙ Source Code

∙ Formulae

∙ Financial Spreadsheets


Point to Point “Plug-and-Encrypt” Installation
The BlackDoor GIG Encryptor is a plug-and-encrypt installation for the payload of layer 2 and MPLS point to point network connections.  The payload of the Ethernet Packets entering the clear text LAN1 are AES encrypted and sent out LAN2 to the Egress Ethernet.  Ethernet packets AES decryption requires a unique 256 bit key.


Broadband Interoffice Ethernet
Demand for interoffice bandwidth to support applications such as: VOIP, IPTV and Video on Demand, and the aggressive pricing from Ethernet Service providers are pushing Interoffice Ethernet into Multi-site Enterprises.  Encryption is required at all network access points to assure sensitive payload and address information is encrypted and protected when it traverses service provider networks.


Wireless Gigabit Ethernet Encryption
One of the most economical means to establish Gigabit Ethernet connectivity between line-of-site locations is Wireless Ethernet with Gigabit interfaces.  TheBlackDoor GIG Encryptor facilitates encryption of the Egress Ethernet to externally located Wireless Gigabit and offloads encryption from the Radio and supports multi point installations.


OSI Layer Encryption
The BlackDoor GIG Encryptor interfaces to all layers with an internal bridge and router:
Layer 2 interfaces by encrypting data while maintaining device level address. 
Layer 3 as a routing encryptor providing totally secure IP packets with addressing.    Secure network tunnels, encrypting all data packets for end-to-end transmission.


MPLS Payload Encryption
The product is flexible in packet handling; it can provide an encrypted ‘tunnel’ for MPLS data packets, encrypting layers above the MPLS labels providing secure data payloads over a MPLS network.


The Black-Door GIG Encryptor is now available now!  


Engage Communication, founded in 1989, has ROHS compliant solutions that enable organizations to routebridge, encryptand auto protect Voice/Video/Data Networks and to take advantage of the lower costs and flexibility associated with Packet transport while preserving their investment in Circuit based premises equipment such as: PBXsPhone SwitchesVoice and Data MultiplexersVideo and Audio Codecs, and Encryptors...
