Gemalto has launched a new virtualized network encryption platform, SafeNet Virtual Encryptor CV1000.

Leveraging the proven security and performance of the hardware-based SafeNet High Speed Encryptor family, the SafeNet Virtual Encryptor CV1000 is a hardened virtual security appliance designed to secure data in motion across both software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) and traditional networks.

Developed by Gemalto's high speed encryption partner, Senetas, the new platform can encrypt data in motion at data-rates up to 5 Gbps, claims Gemalto.

Transforming the network encryption market, SafeNet High Speed Encryptors are the first to offer Transport Independent Mode, which enables organizations to encrypt data across mixed high speed WAN links (Layers 2, 3 and 4). Organizations can now be assured that they are getting the best performance and secure encryption, regardless of the network layer. This feature is currently available for the SafeNet Virtual Encryptor CV1000, and will be available for the hardware-based SafeNet High Speed Encryptors later this year.
