Multi-link network encryptor with 100 Gbps encrypted bandwidth

Gemalto released its new SafeNet Multi-Link High Speed Encryptor (HSE) solution that provides the equivalent of 10 by 10 Gbps high-speed encryptors in one unit. With a total encrypted bandwidth of 100 Gbps, the CN8000 helps enterprises and service providers protect data transmitted across large-scale data networks.


Designed to support the highest security criteria, the CN8000’s ten 10 Gbps multi-link design includes an important multiple tenancy feature, which provides flexibility benefits to organizations that require separating specific sensitive data and network links.

The CN8000 utilizes embedded quantum random number generation to guarantee high-quality randomness for protection against targeted crypto-attacks.

“With cyber-attacks being a question not of “if” but “when”, companies need to think about best practice data protection – without breaking the bank,” said Todd Moore, vice president of product management Encryption Products at Gemalto. “Our high speed encryption offering enables customers to protect their data in motion by attaching security directly to the data itself. We can protect sensitive data from surveillance and overt and covert interception at an affordable cost, ensuring it is effectively useless should it fall into unauthorized hands at the same time helping customers reducing their encryption footprint.”

Gemalto has partnered with Senetas and Swiss company ID Quantique to develop, deliver and support the CN8000. Its performance capabilities are based on ten 10 Gbps encryption ports, in one compact 4U chassis.

“The CN8000 enhances the broad range of solutions we are jointly able to offer customers to protect their most sensitive assets and stakeholders no matter where they reside, and no matter where their data is transmitted,” said Andrew Wilson CEO of Senetas. “With data networks constantly evolving and rapidly growing, customers require best-of-breed data security and maximum network performance at the same time. Our ability to encrypt at wire speeds without adding network overheads and deliver customers their near-zero latency network performance requirements differentiated the CN encryptors. Now the CN8000 provides important multi-link and multi-tenancy capabilities while meeting the most demanding private and public cloud architecture requirements.”
