Adtran launches new FSP 3000 OLS to unlock the coherent optical edge

Businesswire | May 26, 2023

Adtran today launched its FSP 3000 Edge OLS, an open line system designed for the new generation of coherent edge access, aggregation and metro networks. It enables operators to efficiently address soaring bandwidth demand from mobile, broadband and enterprise applications by leveraging the latest coherent pluggable technology in this cost-sensitive part of the network. The FSP 3000 Edge OLS has been specifically engineered for the use of coherent transmission at the optical edge, including the recently introduced Coherent 100ZR, as well as 400ZR optics. By utilizing power-optimized wavelength broadcasting technology and a gridless architecture, the solution enables a simple and affordable optical layer with compact and flexible nodes that can transport any coherent signal and baud rate. “At OFC, we showcased our world-first QSFP28 Coherent 100ZR, bringing robust, efficient and simple coherent technology to the edge of the network. Now we’re complementing this innovative transceiver with an OLS optimized for the cost-efficient transport of coherent technology at the optical edge. Providing maximum performance, it meets all critical demands of edge aggregation networks, including scalability, compact design, low power consumption, operational simplicity and extended temperature operation for outdoor deployment,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO at Adtran. “Our pioneering work at the network edge is creating whole new opportunities for service providers.” The Adtran FSP 3000 Edge OLS is an open line system engineered to help operators roll out coherent optical edge networks in the most cost-effective and flexible way possible. With ZR-optimized technology for minimal insertion loss, the new OLS enables the use of ZR coherent optics at the optical edge in multiple use cases, including linear, hub-and-spoke or tree topologies. With its modular design, it empowers users to mix and match elements to create a solution that meets their exact needs. What’s more, the Adtran FSP 3000 Edge OLS facilitates the development of a compact and efficient optical layer with low-power nodes that require minimal space and can function in an extended temperature range. This enables deployment in outdoor environments, such as street cabinets. “Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS offers a major boost to operators looking for an affordable way to tackle relentless growth in data traffic. Low-cost yet highly flexible, it can scale to transparently accommodate any line speed or baud rate. Now there’s a clear route to deploying an optical layer that leverages coherent transport technology, including 100ZR and 400ZR optics, and meets the stringent requirements of the new optical edge,” commented Henning Hinderthür, VP of product line management, Optical Networks at Adtran. “Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS harnesses advanced wavelength broadcast technology for new levels of power and cost efficiency.

Balbix Extends Cybersecurity Posture Automation Platform with Application Security and Risk Management Capabilities

prnewswire | April 19, 2023

Balbix, the leader in cybersecurity posture automation, today announced the addition of advanced Application Security and risk management capabilities to the Balbix Security Cloud platform. Enterprise cybersecurity teams can now efficiently identify, prioritize, and mitigate application vulnerabilities while accurately quantifying application risks in monetary terms. As with all other Balbix platform features, these capabilities work in a unified way uniformly across cloud-based and traditional applications. These new features demonstrate Balbix's focus on providing the most comprehensive attack surface visibility and automation for cyber risk management. In digital landscape, businesses rely heavily on software applications to engage with customers and manage operations. The recent increase in application component vulnerabilities, such as Log4j, Spring4Shell, and OpenSSL, emphasize the importance of robust application security measures. Balbix's AppSec and risk management capabilities are vital to securing applications, minimizing business risk and protecting customer data. Balbix's new AppSec module provides deep visibility into an organization's application inventory by automatically deduplicating, normalizing, and unifying application vulnerability data from multiple cybersecurity, IT and business tools. Balbix's unified risk model now incorporates application risk in monetary terms, providing organizations with an enhanced view of their cyber risk posture in business language. This enables security teams to prioritize and remediate application security vulnerabilities based on risk, in near real-time. Balbix's advanced AI capabilities provide for unparalleled automation, which eliminates numerous manual tasks and allows security teams to focus on high-priority issues. With its unified risk model, Balbix goes beyond traditional AppSec vendors to offer security teams comprehensive Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) capabilities, advanced Risk-Based Vulnerability Management (RBVM), and Cyber Risk Quantification (CRQ) use cases. Unlike other AppSec solutions, Balbix's approach provides a holistic view of cyber risk that enables organizations to prioritize and address the most critical risks. "Software application vulnerabilities are a growing concern for organizations, as the risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks continues to rise," said Ed Amoroso, Founder and CEO of research and advisory firm TAG Cyber. "Balbix's new AppSec capabilities help organizations identify potential vulnerabilities and implement effective security measures to prevent adversaries from exploiting them. By providing a normalized source of truth for application inventory and vulnerabilities, Balbix enables businesses to gain a comprehensive understanding of their security posture and make informed decisions regarding risk management and resource allocation." Balbix's AppSec features not only stand-out at discovering and prioritizing application vulnerabilities and quantifying application risk, but they also provide a crucial link between the application layer and the underlying infrastructure. This is achieved through an industry-first application-to-infrastructure mapping capability, which allows businesses to visualize the relationships between their applications and the infrastructure on which they depend. Gaurav Banga, Founder and CEO of Balbix, underscores the critical nature of effective application security in today's rapidly evolving threat landscape. "Our mission at Balbix is to help organizations enhance their cybersecurity posture through maximal automation and AI. By introducing our new AppSec capabilities, we're advancing that mission, equipping security teams with the tools necessary to swiftly and accurately identify, prioritize and fix vulnerabilities in their applications." About Balbix Balbix enables businesses to reduce cyber risk by quickly identifying and mitigating their riskiest cybersecurity issues. Our SaaS platform, the Balbix Security Cloud™, ingests data from businesses' security and IT tools so they can understand every aspect of their cybersecurity posture, build a unified cyber risk model and obtain actionable insights for risk reduction. With Balbix, businesses can automate and unify their cloud and on-prem asset inventory, conduct continuous risk-based vulnerability management and quantify cyber risk in dollars. Executives and operational teams can make cybersecurity decisions based on data, not opinions.
