100Gbps, ultra-fast, certified high-assurance network encryption and ultra-low latency; protecting ‘Mega Data’ applications.

The evolution of 100Gbps links and networks reflect the exponential growth in volume and types of data generated by business applications and the Internet of Things. Big data is rapidly becoming ‘Mega Data’ and high-speed networks are becoming ultra-fast.

The Senetas CN9000 series is the first commercially available range of certified high-assurance 100Gbps Ethernet encryptors that support the most complex fully meshed topologies – enabling 100% security for Big Data, Cloud and data centre services’ ultra-fast networks. It’s one of the reasons why Senetas encryptors are used by governments and defence forces in more than 30 countries.

Senetas CN9000 encryptors represent the very best in electronics engineering, data network security R&D, ultra-fast 100Gbps bandwidth performance and future-proof data security.

As Big Data becomes ‘mega data’, the ultra-fast 100Gbps bandwidth of the new CN9000 series makes it the ideal solution for the most sensitive network data encryption environments.

The CN9000 series encryptors are the optimal choice when you require:

  • A dedicated hardware solution that is secure and tamper-proof
  • Encryption key management is state-of-the-art and ‘zero touch’
  • Encryption algorithms that are standards based
  • End-to-end authenticated encryption.

The CN9000 encryptors are currently the only high-assurance 100Gbps encryptors that support fully meshed, multipoint-to-multipoint topologies, in addition to simple point-to-point, point-to-multipoint or hub and spoke topologies.
