Ethernet Encryption R&S®SITLine ETH

Protecting data center and site-to-site connections against eavesdropping

Big data applications and cloud technologies are driving the amount and the value of data in motion. They give enterprises a decisive competitive advantage and provide government authorities with great opportunities to increase their efficiency. Yet handling big data involves far-reaching challenges, primarily with respect to IT security. When connecting sites and data centers, confidential information leaves secured and trusted grounds. Reports in recent months have revealed that optical and electrical lines can easily be tapped. Rohde & Schwarz provides high-performance network encryptors that protect data center connections and wide area networks (WAN) against eavesdropping and manipulation.

Scaleable Ethernet encryption: R&S®SITLine ETH

R&S®SITLine ETH is a family of Ethernet encryptors. They protect organizations against espionage and the manipulation of data, transported via Ethernet over landline, radio relay and satellite links. 
In case of increasing data traffic, a flexible license concept allows performance upgrades up to 40 Gbit/s per device by means of a firmware update and without the need to change the hardware. 
The devices combine easy administration (including separated network and security management) with a compact form factor and low system costs. They are BSI-approved for classified communications at German and NATO RESTRICTED security levels.
