CipherOptics a new line of Variable Speed Encryption (VSE) appliances. While traditional encryption appliances are based on a static throughput, the new VSE line of network encryptors will allow customers to purchase a hardware platform that can encrypt at various throughputs, based on bandwidth licenses.
The appliances will be available in three platforms with bandwidth licenses based on common WAN link speeds.
The CEP10 VSE will offer bandwidth licenses for 3, 6, 10, 25, 50 and 75 Mbps of encrypted throughput. The CEP100 VSE will offer licenses for 100, 155, and 250 Mbps. The CEP1000 VSE will include throughputs of 500 Mbps, 650 Mbps and 1Gbps.
All of the VSE platforms will be compatible with CipherOptics’ CipherEngine group encryption solution and will offer the highest levels of data protection at Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4.
With this new platform, CipherOptics offers its customers the ability to increase their encrypted throughput for only the cost difference between the price of their current throughput and their desired performance, eliminating the growth penalty normally associated with increasing encrypted bandwidth. General availability is slated for mid-November.
