Pittsburgh, PA, October, 5, 2011- Certes Networks, the leader in multi-layer encryption solutions for high performance networks, announced today that it has signed an OEM agreement with ID Quantique SA, a Geneva based leader in conventional and quantum encryption technologies. ID Quantique (IDQ) will bring Certes Networks’ technology to market as the Arcis family of multi-layer security products. This enhanced capability will allow IDQ to expand its product offering to include transparent network encryption of IPSec and MPLS networks and offer new features such as persistent authentication to ensure data integrity.

“Our partnership with Certes Networks allows IDQ to expand into new vertical markets, such as the protection of critical infrastructure, while also being able to better meet the needs of our existing financial and enterprise clients to secure multi-carrier and multi-layer networks for compliance and audit,” said Gregoire Ribordy, CEO of IDQ. “Our new Arcis product line perfectly fits our philosophy to align high performance with security.”

Certes Networks' innovative policy and key management solution and multi-layer, wire-speed encryption appliances can secure any network without impacting the underlying infrastructure or application performance. This groundbreaking solution eliminates the tradeoffs that have traditionally accompanied network encryption and allows organizations to follow the best practice of separating security from infrastructure management roles. The solution architecture also enables secure cloud migrations, allowing companies to adopt cloud networking at their own pace.

"The need for scalable, high performance network security continues to grow within European markets and the rest of the world," said Thomas Gill, CEO of Certes Networks. "Our partnership with IDQ provides us with a strong European channel that can support the increasing demand for multi-layer encryption while maintaining the highest standards for customer service and support. "
