Rambus announced the release of its 800G MACsec (Media Access Control security) for networking infrastructures.

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 evolution to 800 GbE will be a key enabler on the path forward.”
