The CyberSecure IPS is the first five-level cyber security solution designed to secure physical fiber cabling infrastructure and automatically protect data traffic of government and enterprise networks from physical plant cyber-attacks - minimizing the risk of physical intrusions and the loss of mission critical classified information.
Fiber-optic cables can be tapped and classified data compromised without alerting data security systems. To prevent physical plant cyber-attacks on secure networks, agencies and companies typically deploy protective distribution systems (PDS), data encryption devices or concrete-encased conduit banks.
The CyberSecure IPS combines the S320 optical circuit switch from CALIENT with the CyberSecure Infrastructure Management System (IMS) from American
When an optical disturbance is detected on a data network infrastructure cable, the CyberSecure IMS software notifies CALIENT’s S320 of the intrusion attempt and the S320 then quarantines network elements. The S320 can instantly shut off or reroute data traffic to a new network infrastructure to prevent any sensitive information from being transmitted across compromised circuits.
This routing capability can also be used to direct traffic to optical tap couplers for network packet monitoring.
“Classified networks need to be physically protected from intrusion as well as provide quick response to any network threat, but traditional solutions are not ideal in today’s ever-evolving communications systems,” said
“The government is investing heavily in cyber security over the next five years to protect classified information. The Cyber Secure IPS gives IT security teams unprecedented network visibility into their physical plant, taking IT security to a whole new level,” said
The CyberSecure IPS fully meets NSTISSI 7003 security requirements. The CyberSecure IPS is available now from CALIENT’s government sales force. For more information on the CyberSecure IPS solution or to download a Solutions Brief, visit our web site or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
