Vitesse's Intellisec Secures Communications Networks for Cloud Services

Industry's First Solution for Cost-Effective Network-Wide Link Layer Encryption

ANAHEIM, Calif.--Mar 18, 2013-- (BUSINESS WIRE) Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for  Carrierand  Enterprise networks, introduced  Intellisec™, its patent-pending, universal, lightweight  security encryption technology for communications networks. Intellisec is the industry's first technology to enable  IEEE 802.1AE MACsec encryption end-to-end over any network, including  multi-operator and  cloud-based networks, independent of the network's awareness of security protocols. Delivering up to 75% savings versus alternatives, Intellisec radically reduces the cost of securing network applications such as  e-commercecloud servicesenterprise, and government communications.

Recent reports on  cybersecurity breaches highlight the need for critical network infrastructure protection, as Enterprises and Carriers alike move to cloud-based models. The security aspect also has implications for  mobile 4G/LTE deployments and  industrial networks. According to Hewlett-Packard's recent 2012 Cyber Security Risk Report, total security vulnerabilities are rising, with mobile vulnerabilities having grown 68% from 2011 to 2012 alone and 787% over the last five years.

"Vitesse is changing the landscape of secure network communications with Intellisec technology," said Martin Nuss, chief technology officer for Vitesse. "End-to-end network encryption is highly complex and prohibitively expensive to implement at Layer-3, while existing Layer-2 MACsec PHY solutions need encryption and decryption at every link in the network. Because Intellisec runs over  MEF CE 2.0 and  MPLS networks, it will work over most service provider networks with Intellisec-enabled equipment access devices or enterprise edge routers at network endpoints. This has never been done before."

Intellisec: A Low-Cost, Scalable Cloud Networking Security Solution

  • Enables MACsec Networkwide: Intellisec dramatically extends MACsec to support secure access to multiple cloud services, enabling delivery of MACsec-secured Layer-2 Carrier Ethernet services, such as  MEF EVCs, MPLS L2VPNs and  Data Center Interconnect, across the network. Until now, MACsec has traditionally been limited to link-based box-to-box applications primarily within cloud services data centers;
  • Simple, Low-Cost, Scalable: Intellisec scales easily with the number of interfaces, delivering up to 75% cost savings compared to alternate solutions. Network installation involves a simple upgrade of the system's physical layer components without impacting or upgrading the ASICs or network processors;
  • Maintains Network Synchronization: Precision synchronization is critical to network infrastructure. Intellisec works together with Vitesse's  VeriTime™ technology to maintain nanosecond-level  IEEE 1588v2 time stamping accuracy;
  • Compatible Extension to Existing Technologies: Intellisec enables network link upgrades independent of the network's awareness of security protocols.

Vitesse at OFC/NFOEC in Anaheim

Vitesse will showcase its latest IC and software solutions at the OFC/NFOEC 2013 Expo, March 19-21, 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Center inCorporate Village Room #3259. Meetings are by appointment only.

Vitesse CTO, Dr. Martin Nuss, will also join industry experts from NSA, Ciena, and the Department of Defense in a technical panel discussion, "Network Security," (NTh3J) taking place on Thursday, March 21 at 1 p.m. local time. The panel will address specifics of security for the communications sector transport networks.
