Silver Peak Counters Eavesdropping on Corporate Networks with Accelerated IPSec
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Silver Peak (News - Alert), the leader in accelerating data over distance, today
announced it has combined the best of site-to-site VPN security and WAN
optimization to deliver Accelerated
IPSec. Silver Peak combines these capabilities to provide customers
with the most cost-effective approach to securing and accelerating data
in transit between data centers, remote offices and the cloud. This
saves customers time and money by eliminating the need to purchase
separate IPSec VPN and WAN
"Current events have elevated concerns about corporate traffic being
intercepted by government agencies," said Damon Ennis, SVP of products
for Silver Peak. "This is driving renewed interest in how businesses
secure critical communications and data transfers to remote sites.
Silver Peak provides companies with immense value by providing IPSec VPN
security as part of our WAN optimization products for no additional
Conventional site-to-site virtual private networks (VPNs) protect data
in-flight, but require extensive networking expertise to configure and
do not adress the performance challenges of delivering applications
over distance. Silver Peak solves the performance and configuration
challenges of IPSec, enabling applications to perform as well across a
long distance IPSec VPN as they do within the local office - all without
requiring networking expertise or complicated procedures to deploy a
VPN. The software sits on the edge of the network running as a virtual
machine or as a physical appliance, and site-to-site traffic is
accelerated and secured using AES-256 encryption with SHA-1
"Creating the IPSec tunnels with Silver Peak was easier and faster than
on a router," said Steve Borba, network security engineer for Citizens
Business Bank. "It also gave us features beyond just VPN, such as
WAN acceleration and SSL decryption."
