Certes Networks Launches Industry's First Encryption Solution for End-to-End Protection of Sensitive Data in Virtualized and Physical Networks

CryptoFlow Solutions Enable Enterprises, Government Institutions and Service Providers to Protect Any Application Flowing to Any IT Asset Over Any Network With a Single Point of Control

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Certes Networks, a leading innovator in encryption solutions to protect networked applications, today unveiled CryptoFlow™ Solutions, the industry's first products to combine virtualized networking functionality with the most powerful cryptography for data protection and traffic integrity.

CryptoFlow Solutions enable enterprises, government institutions and service providers to easily and dynamically protect any application flowing to any IT asset over any network with a single point of control for encryption management and keying. As part of a software-defined security strategy, CryptoFlow Solutions protect sensitive data in mixed physical, virtual and Cloud environments, with zero impact on network or application performance.

The CryptoFlow Solutions are part of a European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Proof of Concept of Distributed Network Function Virtualization (NFV). Led by CenturyLink, the PoC features a Certes' CryptoFlow Solutions encryptor operating as a Virtualized Network Function with virtualization and orchestration products from other vendors.

With flow-through encryption policy definition and automated enforcement, CryptoFlow Solutions safeguard application traffic containing sensitive data such as credit card and financial information, healthcare patient records, student records and proprietary information over trusted and untrusted networks.

CryptoFlow Solutions are based on enhanced versions of the company's award-winning Certes Enforcement Point (CEP) product lines, which secure multiple Terabits of sensitive traffic every second for customers in 70 countries around the world. The most security-conscious enterprises in financial services, government, education, utilities, healthcare and other sectors rely on Certes' patented solutions for protecting sensitive data.

Certes' security policy enforcement points sit in the physical network or virtual environment processing traffic and applying encryption based on an enterprise or service provider's security policies. With CEP version 4.0, these enforcement points are available as self-contained hardware-accelerated appliances scaling to 10 Gbps, or as fully virtualized enforcement points, known as Virtual CEPs (vCEPs).

The new solutions enable security managers to create CryptoFlow VPNs, which are fully meshed, multi-point, group-keyed VPNs featuring auto-configuration of lower layer encryption. With a CryptoFlow VPN, a security manager can identify and seamlessly protect traffic flows containing sensitive data and ensure traffic is encrypted end-to-end with a single point of control. A CryptoFlow VPN safeguards traffic at multiple network layers, at variable speeds, or in an environment of mixed physical, virtual and Cloud-based resources.

"We've seen some of the biggest data breaches in history in recent months, costing companies billions. It's clear that traditional IT security has not kept pace with the new world of borderless applications and porous network borders," said John Lochow, CEO of Certes Networks. "Certes CryptoFlow Solutions are designed to protect sensitive data traffic even when a firewall is breached and network borders are compromised."

A CryptoFlow VPN completely offloads and decouples all encryption processing and management from the network and from applications themselves, fully separating traffic security management from network and application management. Now security of data in motion is not dependent on highly fragmented controls across many different systems or network layers, but can be managed with a single point of control across all networks and applications.

"RAD has teamed with Certes because its encryption solutions offer advanced deployment flexibility and simple configuration to secure virtualized connectivity in enterprise and service provider environments," said Noam Weisman, Head of Applications Ecosystem at RAD. "For that reason, vCEP CryptoFlow was accepted into RAD's D-NFV Alliance, an ecosystem of virtualized applications tested by RAD and offered alongside our ETX-2 customer edge Distributed NFV (D-NFV) platform. The Certes vCEP provides traffic encryption as a virtual function for security-conscious enterprises protecting sensitive data traffic."
