CN9120 Product Brief
Product overview with technical features and specifications.
White Paper: Secure Multicast Transmission
This white paper discusses the encryption of multicast data traffic at Layer 2 to provide secure data transmission through high-speed networks.
White Paper: Security Weaknesses in Data in Motion Identified in Cybersecurity SurveyA global research report of IT and cybersecurity decision-makers highlights serious concerns about the security of data in motion across networks.
White Paper: In Control at Layer 2 A Tectonic Shift in Network Security
Organizational espionage is real and set to intensify, contributing to a shift to the more efficient encryption of sensitive traffic at Layer 2. Compared to IPSec (Layer 3), Layer 2 secure encryption can boost network performance by up to 50%. This paper outlines the shift, and looks at the drivers and benefits of Layer 2 encryption.
White Paper: Network Independent Encryption
First introduced to the CV Series virtualized encryption range in 2018, Thales Network Independent Encryption is now available for the CN Series of hardware encryption devices. It enables concurrent, policy-based multi-layer encryption for modern Ethernet and Internet protocol architecture.
White Paper: Securing SD-WAN - End-to-End Encryption Solutions
This White Paper analyses the threats that organizations deploying SD-WAN face, explains why data in motion should be encrypted and offers guidance on choosing the right encryption solution.
White Paper: High Speed Encryption Solutions Across MPLS Networks
High Speed Encryptors provide the optimal, most efficient means of encrypting data across modern metro or wide area Ethernet networks. By encrypting the payload of Ethernet traffic, sensitive data (including all IP addresses) is kept completely private whilst the frame headers are left unencrypted so that traffic can still be switched across the network. Although HSEs are designed for use across layer 2 networks such as metro or carrier Ethernet services, they can also be effectively deployed across layer 3 MPLS or IP/VPN environments.

White Paper: MACsec For WAN And High Assurance Encryptors: Network Security Comparisons
This paper seeks to highlight the differences between purpose-built high-assurance encryptors and MACsec for WAN solutions; helping customers make informed decisions about what solution type best meets their specific security, performance and operational requirements. The section overleaf provides a security feature comparative table.
eBook: High Speed Ethernet WAN eBook
This eBook discussed how Thales enables you to implement a totally secure, full performance, high speed Ethernet WAN, ensuring your data is secure.
Ethernet WAN Encryption Solutions Compared White Paper
This White Paper describes the comparative security and performance benefits of Ethernet WAN data security solutions. We compare the benefits of SafeNet Layer 2 high speed encryption hardware with integrated encryption using MACsec or TrustSec.
Traffic Flow Security White Paper
As the old saying goes, “loose lips sink ships”. For today’s enterprises, it is network metadata doing the talking—and a lot of potentially dangerous entities are listening. This paper looks at the risks that metadata can pose to many organizations, and it reveals how transmission security can be used to create a safeguard against nefarious network traffic analysis.
