The CipherOptics solution is ideal for our customers, like Tüpraş, who are very serious about security
Raleigh, NC (Vocus) April 21, 2010
CipherOptics, a leader in scalable network encryption, announced today that Tüpraş, an integrated petroleum company based in Turkey, has selected CipherOptics to encrypt their multicast surveillance video along with other streaming video traffic on their Metro Ethernet WAN.
Tüpraş operates four oil refineries in Turkey with 28.1 million tons of annual crude oil processing capacity. With a majority stake in the shipping company DITAS and a large portion of ownership in gasoline retailer Opet, Tüpraş is Turkey’s largest industrial enterprise.
Tüpraş had a number of strict requirements for their encryption solution. Among their requirements was the need to natively encrypt their Metro Ethernet network without impacting their latency sensitive applications. They also needed a solution capable of decoupling encryption from the network infrastructure, which would provide an additional layer of security.
Tüpraş was pleased to learn that the CipherOptics solution could satisfy all of their requirements without any customization or modification of their network or applications. “We are satisfied with the CipherOptics solution,” said Selcuk Aydogdu, Network Administrator for Tüpraş. “It works both for Layer 2 and Layer 3 network topologies. The encryptors are reliable and have not been causing any incidents since deployed.”
Tüpraş’ trusted system integrator and CipherOptics Turkish reseller, KoçSistem, installed and deployed the encryption solution at each of the oil refineries. “The CipherOptics solution is ideal for our customers, like Tüpraş, who are very serious about security,” said Orhan Düz, Operations Group Manager for KoçSistem. “The de-coupling of the encryption service from the network infrastructure means our customers no longer have to chose between performance and security. Also, the simple installation and ease of management of the CipherOptics solution helps keep costs under control, which is an important consideration for our customers.”
CipherOptics protects sensitive information for a growing number of global organizations, utility providers, Fortune 100 companies and government agencies around the world. The CEP line of encryptors offers 10Mbps to 1Gbps wire-speed encryption for any Ethernet or MPLS network, with 10Gbps available in late 2010. CipherEngine makes it easy to deploy and manage network encryption, regardless of scale or network infrastructure.
