Data Encryption Simplified

by CXOtoday Staff    Dec 09, 2008

SafeNet, a provider of information security services, has launched its new 10 gigabit, line-rate Ethernet Encryptor, designed to cost effectively protect sensitive data on high service quality Ethernet circuits. It offers central management for easy administration and audit reporting across multiple circuits and network protocols.

Financial institutions, government agencies, and telecommunications companies transmit large volumes of sensitive data over high-speed Ethernet WANs that connect offices, data centers, and disaster recovery sites. The SafeNet Ethernet Encryptor 10G will enable them to secure high-speed, core networks with minimal administrative and network overhead. The SafeNet family of high-speed encryption products includes FIPS and Common Criteria-certified security. Designed to support the growing movement towards these Ethernet services, the Ethernet Encryptor secures sensitive data more efficiently than higher layer protocols, thereby lowering the cost of network security and compliance.

“In the current economic environment, companies are looking to reduce cost and complexity of compliance,” said Joe Moorcones, corporate vice president of SafeNet. “Fortunately the carriers are providing more Layer 2 network services. Encryption at layer 2, such as Ethernet, is the superior solution to protecting data in transit over the WAN where it can be done with low latency and with no additional increase in bandwidth.”
