As part of its commitment to data center security, Zayo Group (NYSE: ZAYO) now offers Encryption as a Service for its customers. Zayo’s initial customers include a leading global bank using the service to encrypt credit card transaction data – enabling them to maintain compliance with international data center security standards.
Zayo’s Encryption as a Service, which leverages Ciena’s WaveLogic Encryption solution, provides managed wavelength services configured with 10G wire speed encryption at Layer 1, with additional higher speed options in progress. The solution would provide a high level of secured encryption while easily integrating into a customer’s network.

It’s another way we are providing a critical layer of security to protect our customers.”
