Enterprises Can Now "Encrypt Everywhere" with New, More Cost-Effective High-Speed Encryption Solutions from SafeNet
SafeNet Solutions Significantly Reduce the Costs of Encrypting Data Center and Corporate Network Traffic with Enhanced Security, Including Metadata Encryption
June 10, 2014
order to help enterprises protect more sensitive data as it moves between data
centers and across their networks, SafeNet,
Inc., a global leader in data protection solutions, today announced a new
range of high-speed
encryption (HSE) products that enable companies and other organizations to
deploy best-in-class high-speed encryption more cost-effectively for data in
motion. The new SafeNet solutions can help reduce high-speed encryption costs
by as much as 50 percent and are the first commercial Layer 2 Ethernet
encryptors of their kind to offer transmission security (TRANSEC), mitigating
the risk of communications interception and traffic analysis.
new CN4010 and CN6010 Series encryptors, together with the existing CN6100 and
CN6040 Series encryptors from SafeNet, combine certified best-in-class
security, no data overhead, near-zero latency and the performance for the most
time-sensitive and secure communications required by global financial networks
and the world’s largest Internet companies at speeds from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps.
is a perception that high-speed encryption can be expensive, as small and large
businesses look to protect not just data center traffic but other aspects of
their network traffic," said Prakash Panjwani, senior vice president and
general manager, Data Protection Solutions, SafeNet. "Our new high-speed
encryption offerings erase that misconception by giving customers a single
platform to ‘encrypt everywhere’— from traffic between data centers and the
headquarters to backup and disaster recovery sites, whether on premises or in
the cloud. With our comprehensive network traffic encryption solutions,
customers can better protect their data from eavesdropping, surveillance, and
overt and covert interception at an affordable cost, without compromising
security or performance."
HSE products can be used to support a wide range of network encryption
or Multi-point Connections: Companies can meet growing bandwidth requirements
while mitigating commercial infrastructure wiretapping risks.
Center Interconnect/Disaster Recovery Sites: Operations with multiple data
centers or organizations that need real-time disaster recovery enjoy
transparent network redundancy and high-availability.
Office Connectivity: Centralized management enables simple, secure management
of multiple sites, and also includes automated VLAN or bypass options.
infrastructure: Centralized management enables localized administration, with
granular policy control, VLAN separation, and multiple certificate support
Cloud WANS: As more and more sensitive data moves to the cloud, the network
needs to ensure high-speed/low latency communications while ensuring security.
of SafeNet’s HSE include:
Value: They provide the lowest overhead costs by delivering maximum data
network performance; lowest management overheads; 99.999% reliability,
longevity, interoperability, backward compatibility, and quick installation.
They require minimal rack space and are optimized for efficiency, including low
power consumption and maximum rack space utilization through minimal combined
Security: They are designed to be FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria
certified, offering the highest levels of security assurance. They are
also listed in the NATO Information Assurance Product Catalog for the protection
of restricted information, demonstrating the solution’s capabilities to deliver
security without compromise.
Management: The HSEs can be easily dropped into a network regardless of
topological complexity, and require minimal attention after deployment. They
have near-zero latency and zero impact on network bandwidth. They also have no
impact on other network assets, offering centralized management and 99.999
Upgradability: SafeNet’s high-speed encryptors are designed to be upgradeable
in the field to meet Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) use cases, and scale to meet
growing bandwidth demands. The scalable encryptors can provide throughput from
10 Mbps to 10 Gbps.
