The first choice for network encryption, SafeNet High Speed Encryptors from Thales are field proven to secure data in transit including time-sensitive voice and video streams, as well as metadata for enterprise and government organizations, defense agencies, global financial transactions networks, and the world’s biggest cloud services providers. The SafeNet CV1000, CN4000, CN6000, CN8000, and CN9000 Series Encryptors help companies encrypt an even broader range of network traffic across more location types – from the data center to branch offices, and up to the cloud and back at speeds from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps.

The SafeNet Virtual Encryptor CV1000 is the first hardened virtual encryptor. It is instantly scalable, and may be deployed rapidly across hundreds of network links, providing robust encryption protection for data-in-motion. The SafeNet Virtual Encryptor CV1000 is a Virtual Network Function (VNF) that delivers an agile network and reduces capital expenditure requirements.
