Why Virtualized Encryption
Virtualized encryption functions provide the scalability, simplicity, flexibility, and cost-efficiencies demanded by IT and data networks managers. The CV1000 offers organizations an operational and expense friendly alternative to using a hardware appliance for securing data in motion across networks and meeting security and compliance requirements.
By using a virtual encryptor instead of a hardware appliance, organizations can remotely scale up network encryption to meet increased capacity demands or quickly make policy changes across multiple networks, while eliminating the cost for additional rack space.
Instant scalability means it may be deployed rapidly across hundreds of network links, providing robust encryption protection for data-in-motion. Designed to match flexibility and scalability of other Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), such as virtual routers, switches and firewalls, the CV1000 is completely transparent to the network; making it the ideal solution to secure your WAN or SD-WAN, right to the virtual edge.
The CV1000 is the first high speed encryptor to offer Transport Independent Mode. It is network layer independent (Layer 2, Layer 3, and Layer 4) and protocol agnostic. By supporting Layer 3, the CV1000 offers network operators more configuration options using TCP/IP routing for securing critical data. Because it’s software-controlled, the CV1000 enables greater flexibility and responsiveness in network architecture, as well as opportunities to expand the network scale quickly.
The CV1000 protects network communications at speeds of up to 5 Gbps encrypted bandwidth, when optimized in the network. The CV1000 leverages the SafeNet CN Series Ethernet encryptor platform, to maximize available bandwidth and minimize latency. Importantly, the CV1000 is transport layer agnostic and enables concurrent multi-layer encryption, making it an ideal solution for extended virtualized network security.
The CV1000 offers best-in-class high-assurance encryption solutions, providing maximum security and performance. Designed to meet FIPS requirements, the CV1000 supports standards based, end-to-end authenticated encryption, automatic key management, and utilizes robust AES 256-bit algorithms.
With integrated support for KeySecure for Government (a centralized cryptographic key management solution), the CV1000 provides optimum security for the storage of master keys, the integrity of critical security policies and the source of entropy (randomness) for cryptographic key generation
