Salient, Bivio Solution Provides IPv6 Protection for High Speed Networks

Staff Writer | February 09, 2015

Salient Commercial Solutions, Inc., and Bivio Networks, Inc., announce a technology partnership. The new solution, Assure6 IPv6 Sensor for Bivio Networks, is an expansion of the Salient Assure6 product family to encompass the Bivio product line. Assure6 Sensor detects, prevents, and blocks IPv6 malicious attacks through high-speed IPv4 and IPv6 networks at up to 40 Gbps. Assure6 Sensor is currently in product trials with evaluation customers and is expected to be released for general availability in Q2 2015.

“Providing IPv6 security is a mission-critical necessity for our government partners, and customers,” says Brad Antle, CEO and president of Salient. “The joint solution between Salient and Bivio combines powerful technologies that will enable effective IPv6 security. Deploying Assure6 Sensor on Bivio Cyber Security Platforms will provide customers the highest performance network protection. It will enhance our ability to secure information regardless of traffic type and volume, so we can mitigate customers’ exposure.”

Federal and commercial networks are increasingly being targeted by cybercriminals using an arsenal of cyber exploit methods. Despite this onslaught, many organizations continue to operate unmonitored and unprotected networks while not addressing the unique security challenges presented by IPv6. This new solution provides customers with an open, high-performance multi-application networking platform solution that includes a cybersecurity policy gateway that detects and blocks IPv6-based malicious attacks.

“We are pleased to be able to offer the new Salient Assure6 product as another best-in-class cyber security solution operating at wire-speed on the Bivio platform,” says Leila Bristow, vice president, worldwide sales of Bivio Networks. “We believe that many of our new and existing customers, including leading defense department and intelligence agencies, service providers and enterprises, will be eager to implement the solution to further strengthen their global cyber security posture.”

Salient Commercial Solutions will lead a discussion on cybersecurity at ITA LIVE, the first conference to be presented by the Insurance Technology Association from April 12-14 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. For more information on the conference go to www.itapro.org/italive
