ANAHEIM, Calif., March 18 — Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation, a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, introduced Intellisec, its patent-pending, universal, lightweight security encryption technology for communications networks. Intellisec is the industry’s first technology to enable IEEE 802.1AE MACsec encryption end-to-end over any network, including multi-operator and cloud-based networks, independent of the network’s awareness of security protocols. Delivering up to 75% savings versus alternatives, Intellisec radically reduces the cost of securing network applications such as e-commerce, cloud services, enterprise, and government communications.
Recent reports on cybersecurity breaches highlight the need for critical network infrastructure protection, as Enterprises and Carriers alike move to cloud-based models. The security aspect also has implications for mobile 4G/LTE deployments and industrial networks. According to Hewlett-Packard’s recent 2012 Cyber Security Risk Report, total security vulnerabilities are rising, with mobile vulnerabilities having grown 68% from 2011 to 2012 alone and 787% over the last five years.
“Vitesse is changing the landscape of secure network communications with Intellisec technology,” said Martin Nuss, chief technology officer for Vitesse. “End-to-end network encryption is highly complex and prohibitively expensive to implement at Layer-3, while existing Layer-2 MACsec PHY solutions need encryption and decryption at every link in the network. Because Intellisec runs over MEF CE 2.0 and MPLS networks, it will work over most service provider networks with Intellisec-enabled equipment access devices or enterprise edge routers at network endpoints. This has never been done before.”

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
