LGS and Secure64 Team to Provide Internet Domain Name Security Solutions to Help Protect Government Agencies Against Cyber Attacks
Herndon, Va. and Greenwood Village Colo. (March 23, 2010) – LGS Innovations (LGS), a U.S. government subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU), and Secure64 Software Corporation announced today they successfully completed testing of a joint solution that improves internet security. The solution secures the crucial Domain Name System (DNS) against cyber attacks, and allows government agencies to meet their mandate to use DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC).
DNS matches web site names with the actual numeric Internet addresses where the site resides. DNSSEC refers to a suite of Internet engineering task force specifications that apply security keys for data signatures and encryption, thus protecting the DNS information.
“Working with Secure64 and Alcatel-Lucent, LGS has seamlessly packaged two industry-leading solutions to meet the government’s DNSSEC mandate,” said Kevin Kelly, Vice President of Strategy, LGS. “Our customers now can add a crucial layer of network security while reducing network administration costs and network downtime and errors.”
The joint solution combinesSecure64® DNS Signer™, which is the DNSSEC automated key management and zone signing software, and Alcatel-Lucent VitalQIP™ DNS/DHCP IP Address Management Software, a market-leading solution for automating IP address management services.
“By combining these two powerful forces in the IP address space, we not only improve IT operations but help customers meet the government’s requirements for DNSSEC deployment. Agencies will be able to eliminate errors, reduce costs and simplify DNSSEC deployment with automated processes utilizing Secure64’s industry-leading DNS Signer solution, while efficiently configuring and managing it from within VitalQIP,” said Thomas Chalk, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Secure64.
