Deciphering the encryption enigma
Data is increasingly valuable to business, government and individuals – making networks an attractive target to hackers and vandals. Protecting data against these threats has led network operators to use countermeasures including encryption. But encryption can be used in several places, including within a data center, in-flight across the network or at different networking layers. Encrypting at layer 1 and preserving key strength in any of these places can yield the highest threat protection while maintaining application performance
This webinar offers a primer on how layer 1 encryption works, the importance of key strength and how keys should be managed to ensure maximum protection with minimal application impact.
Attend this webinar and learn how:
- Layer 1 encryption complements other security measures and forms a defense-in-depth protection strategy.
- AES-256 symmetric encryption creates quantum proof ciphertext, locked with a key only shared between authorized users.
- Centralized, symmetric key distribution is more scalable and preserves key integrity and strength to help create quantum-proof protection
