ADARA Networks Thwarts Heartbleed

All ADARA Platforms utilizing OpenSSL are equipped with multiple mechanisms against vulnerabilities

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.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Big Data, cloud, analytics, contextual information, wearable tech, sensors, mobility, and WebRTC: together, these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
