Network security newco launched
The specialist security firm was launched by Adva to protect mission-critical communication networks from cyber attacks.
Adva Network Security will complement Adva’s existing networking technology portfolio, which includes approved security controls to protect even the most mission-critical connectivity applications. It will develop, produce and integrate encryption technology able to withstand increasingly sophisticated threats. With its own IT infrastructure and secure data centre facilities in Germany, the new entity will collaborate with national security organisations to ensure end-to-end network protection.
The new company will build on Adva’s portfolio of security technologies, including its optical transport solution that is approved by the German Federal Ministry for Information Security (BSI) for the transmission of up to VS-V classified data, followed by the firm’s Ethernet encryption solution at the end of 2022. Adva Network Security solutions inherit Adva’s NIST 140-2 certification for various products, ensuring that encryption meets the strict demands of American security authorities. The company is also in the process of achieving FIPS 140-3 certification.
Michael Roth, General Manager of Adva Network Security comments: “By creating Adva Network Security, we’re ensuring that networks can deliver new levels of protection to safeguard ever-more sensitive communications such as national security services. We live in a world where the value of information is increasing. At the same time, criminal hackers and unfriendly government actors have unprecedented financial resources at their disposal. Our new independent organisation of highly specialised security experts will provide protection for the most sensitive data in motion at every network layer.”
Christoph Glingener, CEO of Adva adds: “The network security landscape is more dangerous and difficult to navigate than ever before, and that’s before we even consider the threat of quantum computer attacks appearing on the horizon. By creating Adva Network Security as a separate entity, we’re empowering businesses and governments to confront this most urgent issue. Through our new company, we’re enabling customers to comprehensively address the data vulnerability crisis that threatens every aspect of our lives.”
