  • Overview

    Addressing the security and performance demands of the largest, most performance-intensive environments, including those of enterprises, government agencies, and cloud service providers, the CN6000 Series encryptors offer variable-speed licenses up to 10 Gbps. CN6000 Series Encryptors are available for sale to the U.S. Federal Government exclusively through SafeNet Assured Technologies.

    CN6100 10 Gbps Ethernet Encryptor: Market-leading encryptor, offering variable-speed licenses up to 10 Gbps.

    CN6040 Ethernet/Fibre Channel Encryptor: Versatile encryptor that supports both encryption of data in transit over Ethernet, up to 1 Gbps, and Fibre Channel, up to 4 Gbps across storage area networks (SAN).

    CN6010 Ethernet Encryptor: Scalable Ethernet encryptor with variable license speeds up to 1 Gbps.
