The exponentially accelerating use of public networks to facilitate private communications is exposing vital information to eavesdropping, tampering and regulatory compliance violations. In addition the conversion of Voice and Video to IP reveals intimate details of an enterprises telecommunication, perimeter surveillance and video conferences to easy observation with shareware packet sniffers.
Then there is the false sense of the security of Private Networks. Private Network Service provider networks, such as Metro Ethernet and Telco WANs, have unmanned facilities or minimal security at manned locations. Access to interconnecting circuits can be obtained at Telco Switching locations or at a multi-tenant building’s common phone closet. Network service providers utilize collocated common equipment that is maintained by unvetted technicians. Increasing innovative industrial espionage among highly competitive businesses requires that extensive security measures are employed.
Engage's Black•Door Ethernet Encryptors protects the confidentiality and integrity of Intranet and Internet Ethernet networks with the strongest commercially available cryptography. Black•Door Ethernet Encryptor, which supports Point to Point and Multipoint information assurance configurations with unique dynamic keys, is specifically designed for real time wireline backbones and the full spectrum of outdoor Wireless WAN technologies including: Free Space Optics, licensed and unlicensed Radios.
AES Circuit Encryption is employed to prevent interception, tampering and disruption of public or private communication channels. Engage’s Black•Bond T1/E1 Link Encryptor utilizes the AES to secure secret and sensitive information transmitted over point-to-point or dial-up T1/E1 communication links.
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with 256 bit keys is utilized by the Black•Bond to protect electronic data. The AES algorithm is a symmetric block cipher that encrypts and decrypts information. AES is a FIPS approved symmetric encryption algorithm that may be used by U.S. Government organizations (and others) to protect sensitive information.
