JDSU Selects Mocana to Secure Popular TestPoint Family of Broadband Test Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - Mocana today announced that JDSU, the leading provider of communications test and measurement solutions and optical products for telecommunications service providers, cable operators, and network equipment manufacturers, has selected Mocana to provide embedded security and device integrity for the popular JDSU TestPoint family of broadband test solutions.

JDSU TestPoint offers a flexible and cost-effective telecom and datacom test solution for Production and Service Verification Testing (SVT). It consists of a modular platform that provides versatility in configuring interface types, transmission rates, protocols, and port density. A key TestPoint attribute is support for multiple rates on single modules. The platform also features and easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) and simple automation interfaces. It is available in three chassis formats, and provides 1/2/4/8/10G Fibre Channel (FC) support and Ethernet features from 10Mb/s up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE). Transport protocol coverage includes Synchronous Optical NETworking/Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SONET/SDH) up to 39.813 Gb/s and Optical Transport Network (G.709) up to 43.018 Gb/s including overclocked rates.

After analyzing several security partners, JDSU selected Mocana and their NanoSSH Advanced solution because of Mocana's extremely small footprint, very high performance and ease-of-implementation. Because NanoSSH is designed for portability (it's already available for more than 30 operating systems and 70 CPU platforms), JDSU has ultimate flexibility when expanding the TestPoint product line to new hardware platforms.

NanoSSH is Mocana's super-fast, super-small SSH client/server solution with support for X509.v3 Certificate based authentication and comes with RADIUS client, specifically designed to speed product development while providing best-in-class device security services for resource-constrained environments. NanoSSH provides a holistic approach for securing networked devices and services, and is ideally suited for resource-constrained devices as well as high-traffic enterprise and federal environments where performance is critical. NanoSSH is open-standards-based, extensible, extremely small footprint, platform-agnostic and features an optional government-certified FIPS 140-2 level-1-validated crypto core and NSA Suite B cryptography. OEM developers can request a free trial of the NanoSSH software at

"Mocana's NanoSSH software helped accelerate our development cycle for secure connectivity to the TestPoint product," said Guylain Barlow, Sr. Product Line Manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "Mocana's technology is the fastest, smallest SSH implementation we've seen, and the quality of their code can't be beat. They really understand device integrity, and the special challenges of securing embedded platforms."

Mocana announced general availability of the new 5.1 release of its Device Security Framework™, which includes NanoSSH, this September. DSF is the industry's most comprehensive suite of solutions designed to protect the integrity of connected devices. More than 100 major OEM companies including Cisco, Intel, General Electric, Honeywell, Motorola and Siemens rely on Mocana's Framework to protect the networked non-PC devices they sell into the consumer, medical, industrial, IT and military markets.

"JDSU's TestPoint solutions play a crucial role in the gigabit-Internet infrastructure," said Adrian Turner, President and CEO of Mocana. "These critical national infrastructure devices and the communications they monitor and direct are increasingly coming under attack as hackers become ever more sophisticated. We're proud to work with JDSU to help them layer in security that's robust, transparent and won't degrade the performance of TestPoint devices."
