SAN JOSE, Calif., April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ADARA Networks®, the leading provider of advanced computing and networking products, announced today that its customers are protected against the OpenSSL "Heartbleed" vulnerability (CVE-2014-0160) identified by the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) and documented in Alert TA14-098A on April 8, 2014. The company made the announcement to more widely inform the company's customers and also to respond to inquiries from customers of legacy networking and security product companies that have a vulnerability to Heartbleed.
"ADARA's invulnerability to Heartbleed stems from our architecture which multiply encrypts and authentication that extend to each and every single packet," said Dr. Marcelo Spohn, CTO, ADARA. "This eliminates the potential for an exploit of ADARA based upon the Heartbleed vulnerability. Simply put, it is not possible for an attacker to masquerade as an ADARA peer router, switch or any ADARA-networked product."
ADARA is uniquely able to eliminate the risk of Heartbleed exploits for Internet-based services and web applications which are at high risk from this exploit.
All ADARA platforms implementing SSL, including Layer 2, 3 products (switching, routing) and Layer 4-7 products, such as Firewalls, IDS/IPS, WAN Optimization, WAN Acceleration, Global and Local Load Balancing, Web Services, VPN, and SSL termination, as well as all ADARA Software Defined Networking products provide protection against Heartbleed and other exploits. ADARA platforms and products use multi-factor authentication and dynamic multi-factor encryption. These and other security measures also dynamically cycle using a variable time frame, capable of sub-microsecond changes, using intelligence available only in ADARA platforms.
ADARA will announce the ADARA Secure Environments Customer Program on Monday, April 14, 2014 to further bolster the industry against Heartbleed. The program is designed to enable companies to immediately eliminate the vulnerability from their infrastructure, services and operations. ADARA will also provide more details on the unique security features in ADARA platforms that prevent ADARA-protected infrastructure from Heartbleed and other vulnerabilities.
