Centauris Encryption Product Updates
New FIPS 140-2 L3 & Common Criteria EAL2+ Certifications for Centauris CN8000 Multi-Link Encryptors
As part of our continued commitment to provide tried and tested high-assurance offerings, we are pleased to announce that FIPS 140-2 Level 3 & Common Criteria EAL2+ certifications have been achieved for the first time on the Centauris CN8000 Multilink Encryptor platforms.
The Centauris CN8000 multi-link encryptor is designed for quantum-safe data protection of traffic on large-scale data networks. The versatile, rack-mounted device offers 10x 1-10Gbps encryption (max 100Gbps) of Ethernet or Fibre Channel Layer 2 network traffic, with no overhead and ultra-low latency.
News of open systems vulnerabilities, such as OpenSSL’s heartbleed, which has led to recent breaches of millions of sensitive records, has highlighted the benefits of certified ‘closed systems’. Across the globe, commercial organisations continue to risk the loss of financial data and intellectual property by underestimating these risks, failing to invest in robust solutions and not encrypting data in motion.
New Centauris CN9000 Series: ultra-fast, 100Gbps Ethernet encryptor
ID Quantique presents the new Centauris CN9000 series; 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.
The Centauris CN9000 series incorporate IDQ’s quantum random number generator (Quantis QRNG) providing high quality encryption key generation and distribution. The CN9000 can be further upgraded with the unconditional security of Cerberis Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) to offer next-generation security for point-to-point backbone and storage networks requiring long-term data protection in a post-quantum world.
