Adax in pact with AuthenTec to create carrier-grade IPsec security solution

By
Telecom Lead Team:
Adax, a provider of packet-processing, security and network
infrastructure, has teamed with mobile and network security provider AuthenTec
to create Adax IPsec, a new carrier-grade IPsec security solution.


Adax
IPsec is based on AuthenTec’s QuickSec IPsec toolkit and integrates IPsec
binary software and hardware acceleration with the Adax Packet Processing
Boards. The IPsec solution provides robust, high-speed, security functions for
security gateways and routers. Adax IPsec provides embedded security functions
in any network node, resulting in excellent security system performance and
unparalleled ease of integration.


AuthenTec
QuickSec provides the advanced levels of protection, reliability, and
performance mandated by customers and industry standards alike. The Adax IPsec
binary software package is pre-integrated with the Adax boards and takes
advantage of crypto-acceleration in the Cavium processors. Adax IPsec is a
complete, ready-to-use, high performance and highly reliable IPsec solution.


Security
in IP networks has been and continues to be of great concern to end users,
network service providers and therefore to network equipment and application
developers. But many of those users don’t want to know about security in the
network, they simply want to use it as a part of their application,” said Drew
Sproul, director, Marketing,
Adax.


Adax
IPsec enables robust and standards-compliant authentication, confidentiality,
and data integrity for network nodes such as the LTE MME, SGW, PGW, HSS and
PCRF nodes. It is also ideally suited for Security Gateways, Femto/Home eNodeB
Gateways, enhanced Policy Servers and Data Offload devices.


The
integration of IPsec with the Adax Packet Processing boards offers a range of
platform support including, ATCA, Rack Mount Servers, and Blade Servers.
Running Linux provides easy portability between the platforms and rapid
application development using the open APIs.


Through
our collaboration with Adax, we worked to solve many of the issues facing
today’s network system and application developers,” said Martin Bergenwall,
director of Product Management, Embedded Security Solutions at AuthenTec.
