ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that Shibuya is deploying its open optical technology to deliver secure managed services to leading banks across the Nordics and Baltics.

“For our financial customers, security couldn’t be more crucial. That’s why we’re ensuring that our managed services protect data in motion with the most robust defense available. At Shibuya, we specialize in delivering secure and sustainable IT environments, and ADVA’s solutions are a perfect fit,” said Jessica Liljefors, business area manager at ShibuyaCare, Shibuya. “Adva Network Security‘s encryption technology and the unique experience of its team help us deliver the strongest possible protection and offer complete peace of mind to our banking clients and their customers.

Adva Network Security’s encryption technology and the unique experience of its team help us deliver the strongest possible protection
The new solution safeguards mission-critical financial traffic using ConnectGuard™ Optical encryption technology provided by Adva Network Security. The technology protects data in-flight to the strictest regulatory requirements with minimal impact on throughput. Part of the new infrastructure is built on the ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex™ platform, which uses ultra-flexible modulation with fractional QAM. This supports 600Gbit/s streams while ensuring the lowest possible cost per bit. ADVA’s technology also supports the latest generations of low-latency Fibre Channel, empowering financial network operators to keep up with the requirements of new server and storage technologies – a key consideration for Shibuya and some of its enterprise customers.
“The reputation of today’s financial institutions is built on trust and confidence. By enabling banking customers to harness our TeraFlex™ terminal and enterprise cards, Shibuya is ensuring that Nordic financial enterprises can protect the integrity of highly sensitive data wherever it happens to be in the network. What’s more, our technology delivers the highest levels of performance while also reducing cost per bit,” commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, SVP of sales EMEA at ADVA. “And for major banks, being able to utilize the best available storage area network protocols is also key for meeting new business continuity needs and staying operational in the face of any disruption.”
