With Managed WAN Encryption Service, you encrypt your lines and connections on layer 2 (data-link layer) securely and reliably. Layer-2 connections are suitable, among other things, for connections between computer centres and for encrypting various protocols, such as FiberChannel, Ficon and Ethernet. For layer-3 connections, you need the Managed Firewall/VPN-Service .

Good reasons for layer-2 encryption

  • You make optimal use of the bandwidth.
  • You control the traffic yourself.
  • You can perform the key management yourself.
  • You benefit from a dedicated hardware encryption.
  • You can easily integrate the encryption into an existing layer-2 network.
