US-based specialist in adaptive photonic switching Calient Technologies has teamed with green technology services provider American Networking Solutions to debut the CyberSecure Infrastructure Protection System (IPS). The CyberSecure IPS is the first five-level cyber security service designed to secure physical fibre cabling infrastructure and automatically protect data traffic of government and enterprise networks from physical plant cyber-attacks. The CyberSecure IPS combines the S320 optical circuit switch from Calient with the CyberSecure Infrastructure Management System (IMS) from American Networking Solutions creating an alarmed carrier protective distribution system in the IT security industry. 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 capacity can also be used to direct traffic to optical tap couplers for network packet monitoring. The CyberSecure IPS is available now from Calient's government sales force.
