Security provider Gemalto have launched a virtualized network encryption platform SafeNet Virtual Encryptor CV1000 to address the data security needs of organizations worldwide. With this launch, Gemalto say that they will be consolidating security for organizations deploying SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) technology in a bid to reduce Capex and Opex costs.
Gemalto say that enterprises today are increasingly using SDN (Software-defined networking) and NFV (Network Function Virtualization) to deploy and manage their networks and cloud-based services. They claim that these software-based technologies give organizations operational and cost benefits since they move network functions from dedicated hardware appliances to virtual servers.
However, Gemalto say these technologies pose security challenges for organizations when it comes to protecting sensitive data running across networks through virtual architecture. Hence, in order to secure data across SD-WANs as well as traditional networks, Gemalto say that launching SafeNet Virtual Encryptor CV1000 was necessary.
Speaking about the launch, Todd Moore, Senior Vice President of Encryption Products at Gemalto, commented:
More and more organizations are embracing the advantages of virtualized networks to deliver cost-effective scalability, flexibility and network management to the network edge.
Gemalto’s launch of a virtualized network encryption platform redefines network data security by providing the crypto-agility required to ensure sensitive data and transmissions remain secure, regardless of network design.
