Senetas CypherNET CN6000 Series 10Gbps Encryptors: Rack-mounted, carrier-grade encryption for high-speed data networks.

The intrinsic key generation and distribution capability of the CN6000 Series eliminates reliance on external key servers, providing a robust, fault-tolerant security architecture.

About the CN6000 Series

CN6000 Series network encryptors provide highly secure, full line-rate transparent encryption for data moving across metro / wide area networks; in point-to-point, hub & spoke or meshed environments.

The CN6000 Series are rack-mounted, high-speed network encryptors for business-critical applications, offering 1Gbps to 10Gbps bandwidth speeds. They are the optimal choice when you require:

  • Efficient, investment-proof data encryption
  • Multi-purpose, in-field upgradable and flexible hardware
  • Choice of Common Criteria and FIPS certifications
  • Compact 1U form factor with advanced performance and power features

CN6140 Multi-port Encryption

The CN6140 introduces even greater flexibility and is available as either a single or multi-port device. With rate limited options (per channel) users can customise their encryption to provide anything from 1Gbps up to 4x 10Gbps.

Senetas CN Series and CV Series encryptors include integrated support for KeySecure, the industry’s leading centralised key management platform. KeySecure provides simple and secure encryption key management across the entire lifecycle; including key generation, storage, distribution and deletion.
