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.
Developed specifically for today’s multi-layer networks, Network Independent Encryption provides end-to-end encryption security without the typical performance and bandwidth costs associated with IPSec encryption solutions. Historically, different network types have required different encryption solutions. As network architecture has evolved to comprise multiple transport layers, this has implications for network security, performance and cost.
In the case of Internet protocols, the most common encryption solution, IPSec, is over 20 years old. IPSec was not developed with wide area networking and cloud applications in mind; it incurs additional bandwidth costs and can impact significantly on network performance.
