InfoGuard is the first high-speed encryption product Avnet has ever offered. The vendor has customers in 130 countries and representative offices in Zug in Switzerland, Germany and the UK.
The alliance will focus on InfoGuard’s Multilink Encryption solution, which is billed as the world’s first multi-link and multi-protocol encryption device able to encrypt up to 10 interface ports simultaneously across any combination of Fibre Channel, FICON and Ethernet protocols - while maintaining low latency.
Paul Reeve, director Avnet Technology Solutions EMEA Networks and Security, said: “As optical networks become more critical and criminals become more sophisticated in their attempts to intercept valuable information in transit, there is a growing need for optical encryption.”
Thomas Meier, chief executive at InfoGuard, said: “By working with Avnet, we are able to reach a much larger channel and provide a consistent level of sales, fulfilment and support for both partners and end users. Our relationship with Avnet is part of a long term strategy and will help us to deliver a new category of high performance encryption technologies which we plan to launch at the beginning of next year.”
