ADVA launches Adva Network Security for network protection from cyberattacks

Oct. 4, 2022
Adva Network Security will have its own IT infrastructure and secure data center facilities in Germany and will collaborate with national security organizations on its mission.

ADVA (FSE: ADV) says it has pooled its network security expertise to create Adva Network Security. The new company will develop, produce, and integrate encryption technology to protect communications networks for cyberattacks.

The new company is seen as a complement to ADVA’s networking technology portfolio. Adva Network Security will have its own IT infrastructure and secure data center facilities in Germany and will collaborate with national security organizations on its mission, ADVA says.

“The network security landscape is more dangerous and difficult to navigate than ever before, and that’s before we even consider the threat of quantum computer attacks appearing on the horizon. By creating Adva Network Security as a separate entity, we’re empowering businesses and governments to confront this most urgent issue. Through our new company, we’re enabling customers to comprehensively address the data vulnerability crisis that threatens every aspect of our lives,” commented Christoph Glingener, CEO of ADVA. “Adva Network Security encryption technology has been tested by the most experienced and competent experts. It secures even the fastest data connections with the lowest latency, protecting communications without compromising the transmission quality.”

Michael Roth, most recently v will serve as general manager of Adva Network Security. “By creating Adva Network Security, we’re ensuring that networks can deliver new levels of protection to safeguard ever-more sensitive communications such as national security services. We live in a world where the value of information is increasing. At the same time, criminal hackers and unfriendly government actors have unprecedented financial resources at their disposal. Our new independent organization of highly specialized security experts will provide protection for the most sensitive data in motion at every network layer,” said Roth.

Adva Network Security will build on the optical transport encryption capabilities ADVA has developed (see, for example, “ADVA launches ConnectGuard Cloud for virtualized encryption in hybrid and multi-cloud environments,” “ADVA adds encryption to FSP 150 demarcation device,” and “ADVA FSP 3000 ConnectGuard offers post-quantum cryptography security"), including the parent company’s work in quantum encryption (see, for example, “Utility Schleswig-Holstein Netz, ADVA field trial quantum security over aerial fiber”).
