CipherOptics Announces Availability of Multi-Layer 10Gbps Encryptor


--Multi-layer Advanced IPsec encryption appliance allows for transparent and scalable security for high speed networks over any topology --

Raleigh, NC, January 13, 2011- CipherOptics, the leader in scalable network encryption, announced the release and general availability of their multi-layer 10 Gbps network encryption appliance, the CEP10G. With the CEP10G, organizations can now secure their high-speed network connections without sacrificing performance or network availability. Compatible with the industry recognized Group Encryption solution, CipherEngine, the CEP10G extends the benefits of tunnel-less encryption to high performance data centers, government networks, private clouds and high frequency trading and communication applications.

"Over the past year we have seen strong interest in a 10 gigabit version of our multi-layer encryptors from both our existing customer base as well as growing number of new clients," said Thomas Gill, CEO of CipherOptics. "The ability to secure high speed connections without impacting performance is especially appealing to organizations trying to balance data security and compliance requirements with high performance networking."

With CipherOptics' Group Encryption solution, it's now possible to secure even the most latency sensitive applications including voice and multicast video without impacting quality. CipherEngine's ability to secure data flows at different layers provides security administrators with flexible encryption options and a solution that is easy to install and manage. The solution's low cost of ownership/management and its transparency to network services makes it ideal as an Encryption as a Service (EaaS) offering for network service providers or Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) looking to extend their security offerings to high speed connections.

"Companies that adopt 10 Gbps, do so with a view towards the performance and advantages it provides," said Nick Lippis, independent industry analyst and publisher of the Lippis Report. "The availability of a security solution that protects data without compromising the performance characteristics of 10 gig is a welcomed addition to the market."

The CEP10G will be available in limited quantities starting April 2011, with general availability coming in June 2011. Available as a both a stand alone point-to-point solution or as part of a CipherEngine enabled group encryption solution, the CEP10G will offer the highest level of data protection at Layer 2, Layer 3 or Layer 4. This new platform will allow customers to add high-speed connections to existing CipherEngine deployments without additional upgrades to their network infrastructures.
