CipherOptics announced a multi-layer, 10 Gbps network encryption appliance that extends the benefits of tunnel-less encryption to high performance data centers, government networks, private clouds and high frequency trading and communication applications.

The company said its CipherOptics' Group Encryption solution makes it possible to secure even the most latency sensitive applications, including voice and multicast video, without impacting quality. Service providers could also use it to provide Encryption as a Service (EaaS) offerings.

The CEP10G will be available in limited quantities starting April 2011, with general availability coming in June 2011. Available as a both a stand alone point-to-point solution or as part of a CipherEngine enabled group encryption solution, the CEP10G offers data protection at Layer 2, Layer 3 or Layer 4.

"Over the past year we have seen strong interest in a 10 gigabit version of our multi-layer encryptors from both our existing customer base as well as growing number of new clients, " said Thomas Gill, CEO of CipherOptics. "The ability to secure high speed connections without impacting performance is especially appealing to organizations trying to balance data security and compliance requirements with high performance networking.
