Extreme and CipherOptics will combine Extreme's secure network switching fabric with policy-based security and strong encryption from CipherOptics

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Extending the network through relationships with best-in-class security partners, Extreme Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:EXTR) and CipherOptics(TM), the leader in Protecting Data in Motion(TM), today announced that they are partnering to deliver a solution combining Extreme Networks(R) secure network switching fabric with policy-based security and strong encryption from CipherOptics to protect data across the network.

Working with CipherOptics, Extreme Networks is extending its family of Sentriant(TM) Virtual Security Resource (VSR) appliances with the Sentriant CE150. The Sentriant CE150 is targeted for complex business environments with fast, precise encryption capabilities that are available as an on-demand, network-wide service. Unlike other data encryption products, the Sentriant CE150's unique policy capabilities can target only sensitive data for protection and avoid wasting scarce cryptographic resources on trivial traffic. As a result, customers experience much higher effective encryption capacity and far more control than ever before.

"With the increasing number of compliance and privacy regulations enterprise IT teams are faced with, data protection solutions are becoming a must have," explained Jon Oltsik, Sr. Analyst from the Enterprise Strategy Group. "The combination of Extreme Networks' intelligent Ethernet switching solutions with CipherOptics' Security Gateways brings Extreme Networks customers a superior data protection solution."
