Rockville, Md.—3e Technologies International (3eTI), an Ultra Electronics company and provider of highly secure network solutions that enable Information Assurance (IA) for critical systems, infrastructure and industrial automation, will soon release its next version of the EtherGuard HSE, EtherGuard L3. The new EtherGuard L3 will continue to provide high-speed data encryption for enhanced performance, while using Layer 3 Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certified encryption to securely transmit data over large open networks. With the EtherGuard L3, 3eTI will offer network operators more flexible configuration options using TCP/IP routing for securing critical data links.

EtherGuard L3 will provide impenetrable point-to-point or point to-multipoint data security in the network layer, which is responsible for packet forwarding and transferring data sequences—effectively protecting against external malicious attacks from worms, spyware, or malware. Using proprietary DarkNode technology, the EtherGuard L3 will expand cyber secure protection over TCP/IP networks—providing a more scalable network for the ultimate in end device high-speed, high-grade encryption.

“With EtherGuard L3, 3eTI continues to enable FIPS-140-2 validated AES encryption technology for our government, military and industrial customers,” says Benga Erinle, president of 3eTI. “Expanding EtherGuard’s capabilities to Layer 3 networking enables 3eTI to deliver industrial-rated cryptographic edge devices over larger networks.”

In addition to integrating the new Layer 3 routing capability, the EtherGuard L3 will include the same key features as the HSE, including:

• FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validation and 256 bit AES encryption (NSA Suite B capable)

• Exceptionally low latency at 0.5 ms

• High-speed LAN encryption for voice and data

• SWaP-optimized design and DIN rail mount for quick and easy deployments

• Industrial-rated temperatures between -40oC and 70oC

• Easy-to-use management through web-based, centralized user interface

EtherGuard L3 is scheduled to be available in Q4 2012.
