Webinar June 23: Reduce Cost and Improve Mission Success With Ethernet Encryption

June 21, 2011
By H. Mosher

Join us on June 23 at 1 p.m. for a webinar on how Ethernet encryption over other technologies can help you improve your bottom line while simplifying your network. The requirement for real-time information sharing is driving agencies to eliminate stovepipes and build converged network infrastructures to provide a common operating environment. Agencies are faced with a decision on which network architectures to deploy that will allow them to carry data over wide area networks (WANs) that connect regional commands, domestic and international facilities, data centers, and disaster recovery sites. Aligning encryption capabilities with the transport technology can provide substantial benefits to the organization.
