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."

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
