Gilat Enhances SkyEdge VSAT Platform’s Disaster Recovery Capabilities with Automated Dual IPsec

Provides ATM banking, retailers and other distributed enterprises with rapid recovery for continuous processing without the need for additional hardware

Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, today announced the enhancement of its SkyEdge VSAT platform with advanced disaster recovery functionality.

Gilat’s unique ‘embedded Dual IPsec’ functionality enables simultaneous processing over two ‘end-to-end’ IPsec tunnels allowing for the automatic switching of transaction data to disaster recovery sites, without any need for external equipment and without additional capital expense.

In today’s online and real time computing environments, tens of thousands of networked terminals, ATM banks, retailers and other distributed global enterprises rely on their transactional applications for critical and timely information. The key for keeping the flow of information accurate and responsive is high availability. The reliability of the system and time to recovery is crucial for ensuring uptime and continued operations in the event of disaster or communication failure.

“Our enhanced Dual IPsec solution is especially suited for enterprise applications, such as ATM banking, which requires high reliability and seamless recovery/switchover in the event of disaster or communication failure,” said Hagay Katz, Gilat’s AVP and Head of VSAT Line of Business. “With this enhancement, which was successfully tested in live networks, we have demonstrated once again our commitment to deliver and respond to the on-going needs of our enterprise customers.”
