KB Kookmin Bank Selects Ciena Optical Encryption to Improve Data Security

KB Kookmin Bank announced that it is taking steps to improve the security of customer data by deploying Ciena’s encryption capabilities for secure, high-capacity data centre interconnect (DCI). With Ciena, KB Kookmin Bank will be able to safeguard all data in-flight, giving customers the assurance that their critical information is protected at all times. The encryption solution protects KB Kookmin Bank’s data transmissions from its offices and enables secure data centre interconnect (DCI) between its data centers. Key Facts: A range of commonly used techniques exist to protect data at-rest that secure servers, databases, routers, and switches by managing user access and credentialing. However, in today’s web-scale world, large amounts of critical data are in-flight and transported beyond the walls of the data center, traversing a larger, wide area network. Ciena’s optical-layer encryption solution gives KB Kookmin Bank an additional level of protection and protects data in flight, as it leaves the private cloud and is transported between locations and data centers. Ciena’s solution adheres to local and international regulations and legislations, including the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 encryption certification. Additionally, Ciena’s software-based MyCryptoTool gives KB Kookmin Bank a dedicated management user portal that allows end-users to remotely control all of the security parameters associated with their encrypted services.
