by Enterprise Networking Planet Staff

Suite B cryptography now for use in classified government networks.

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), in a press release presented on it’s website, announced significant expansion of its secure mobility offerings. Suite B cryptography will now be offered on the Aruba Mobility Controller for use in classified government and high-security enterprise networks. Suite B, developed in cooperation with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), is a set of publicly-available, standards-based algorithms that serve as the cryptographic foundation to secure both unclassified information and most classified information.

"’Military, intelligence and many civilian agencies have transitioned to network-centric applications that reside on classified networks and run well on mobile devices,’ said Dave Logan, vice president of government solutions for Aruba. ‘As traffic has grown and as mobility has increased, these classified networks have experienced a dramatic increase in importance and usage. By focusing on commercial solutions to provide classified network access, these organizations are able to maintain high performance, lower acquisition and operations costs and reap the benefits of a more rapid cycle of feature and product innovation.’”
