May 4, 2020 Perry Cohen

Rambus announced the release of its 800G MACsec (Media Access Control security) for networking infrastructures. The solution provides hardware-based, point-to-point security for 800 gigabit ethernet links.

The purpose of the 800G MACsec is to identify and prevent security threats, which include denial of service, intrusion, and masquerading attacks among others.

“Our world has changed dramatically in just a few months, with a global shift to our homes being the center of work, schooling and entertainment,” said vice president of Rambus Security Neeraj Paliwal, in a press release. “This has put enormous strain on the global data infrastructure. The evolution to 800 GbE will be a key enabler on the path forward.”
