SAN JOSE, Calif., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ADARA Networks®, the leading provider of advanced computing and networking products, today announced that it has created the ADARA Secure Environments Customer Program to help businesses immediately eliminate their vulnerabilities to the Heartbleed security failure. Under the program, the company is offering ADARA products at special pricing and terms to assist companies with an immediate solution to securing their networks and services, and providing relief to budget-constrained enterprises that seek to replace or supplement their infrastructure as they move to harden their security posture and protect their businesses.

The widespread threat of the OpenSSL Heartbleed bug to the Internet -- including many of the world's leading Internet services companies, to products from legacy network equipment providers, and to mobile devices underscores the crucial need for impenetrable architectures and for secure encryption and authentication mechanisms. Initially developed and deployed for the most stringently secure environments such as the United States Department of Defense, ADARA's security architecture has been provisioned into all ADARA platforms and products since August 2013, and provides industry-leading protection from Heartbleed and other potential exploits to Internet-based services and web applications, client platforms and mobile devices.

"We are heavily invested in providing our customers with the most secure physical and virtual environments in the world through a security architecture that preemptively prevents exploits from occurring and is only available on ADARA platforms," said Eric Johnson, CEO of ADARA Networks. "ADARA security is at a level far above the standard security in commercial platforms. Enterprises have made us aware that they want and need immediate access to ADARA platforms to fully eliminate vulnerabilities stemming from the Heartbleed bug and other undiscovered exploits that can occur in Open Source implementations."

ADARA's security mechanisms and their implementation are intelligent, dynamic and novel.  The technology eliminates any need to share security data between ADARA peers and clients ever, eliminating the risk of compromising interoperable systems. ADARA's algorithms, its multiple encryptions, proprietary generation algorithms, hardened operating system, access control, authorization, ultra-secure tunneling, application visibility, sub-microsecond cycling and authentication, along with many other ADARA security measures enforced on a packet-by-packet basis, create an impenetrable solution to Heartbleed and other exploits.

ADARA's SSL protection leverages ADARA Defense in Depth Security, and includes ADARA's hardened implementation of SSL. ADARA's SSL implementation has been reviewed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Communication Security Establishment (CSE), both of which function as the United States and Canadian FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Module Validation Authorities.  ADARA's SSL implementation operating in FIPS mode was reviewed for use within a security system that protects Sensitive Information (United States) or Protected Information (Canada) within both computer and telecommunications systems including voice systems.  To view ADARA's SSL FIPS 140-2 Certification, go to:

"Konsultek's customers entrust their infrastructure to us, and it's paramount that we deliver services that protect their security from vulnerabilities," said Judith Buckardt, President and CEO of Konsultek, a leading provider of security and network management services.  "With ADARA platforms and products, we are able to deliver confidence that this trust is not compromised, and that their infrastructures and networks are safe from potent vulnerabilities such as Heartbleed."
