Enterprises around the globe, especially the financial trading industry, requires highly accurate, reliable, and documentable clock synchronization for business logic, competitive advantage, and regulatory compliance. Without reliable clock synchronization, data records can only be identified by timestamps that are off by seconds or more.
Network visibility starts at the foundation of your network. It allows you to expose and resolve hidden problems (blind spots) faster. Faster resolution times mean more TIME to innovate the network design and the applications running on top of it.
Secure Enterprise Clock Synchronization
Trusted by the world's largest organizations, TimeKeeper® is the most accurate, reliable and verifiable time-sync solution available
Secure Clock Synchronization for Financial & Regulatory Compliance
TimeKeeper® is the leading enterprise-class clock sync platform solution for the financial trading industry. In partnership with FSMLabs, the experts in timing technology, TimeKeeper’s innovative solutions can reliably synchronize time-critical application servers and virtual machines in data centers and hybrid cloud environments around the world to within sub-µs accuracy. This provides traceability to official time sources such as UTC and NIST.
Secure Clock Synchronization for Data Center Applications
Time-sensitive data center applications must be accurately and reliably time-synced for data integrity, data governance, network latency monitoring, precise data timestamping, deterministic network performance, log file diagnostics, high-resolution data analytics, and cybersecurity forensics, and more.
- Distributed databases need clock synchronization to enable fast data synchronization methods.
- Software defined networking and network function virtualization (NFV) work better from a unified time base.
- Virtual machine performance and connectivity requires clock synchronization for monitoring and performance tuning.
- Modern data centers as well as both hybrid and pure cloud computing are difficult or impossible to run efficiently without precise time.
Secure Clock Synchronization for DoD Cyber Security
Time-sensitive cybersecurity applications, such as real-time cyberattack, with massive concurrent bots of cyber kill chain, cyberhunt, cybersensor, cyberthreat DPM (detection, prevention & mitigation), and cyber analytics, must be accurately and reliably time-synced and timestamped for data integrity and governance. Precise data logs timestamping, and real-time analytics of time-series and IP cyberattack geo-location and time-of-event data, including prescription and prediction, log file diagnostics, and precision cyber forensics, to name a few. Clock synchronization itself presents attack surfaces. TimeKeeper’s unique monitoring and security alerting capabilities provide a basis for secure cybertiming™ and the use of synchronized clocks in securing computing platforms.
Secure Clock Synchronization for 5G IoT Applications
Time-critical 5G IoT applications, such as driverless cars and industrial sensors, must be accurately and reliably time-synced for data integrity, data governance, network latency monitoring, precise data timestamping, deterministic network performance, log file diagnostics, high-resolution data analytics, and cybersecurity forensics, to name a few.
Accurate time sync of distributed applications is achieved when the network clock sync chain is traceable to UTC, the ultimate stratum 1 master clock reference, through a variety of time sources, such as GNSS, CDMA, and other sources.
