SafeNet Ethernet Encryptor for Branch Offices

Cost-effective data security for branch office Ethernet links up to 100 Mbps


Universal connectivity is the standard for today’s enterprise. Connectivity between corporate and branch offices, server farms, data centers, and disaster recovery sites is a must. At the same time, increased regulation and threats against sensitive data are driving organizations to encrypt information as it traverses these networks. Faced with increasing costs, organizations are looking for scalable data protection solutions that allow them to optimize cost efficiency. Designed specifically for sites with low-bandwidth requirements, the Branch Office encryptors extends the SafeNet family of Ethernet Encryption devices to provide a complete solution for network data encryption from 10Mbps to 10Gbps.

Unsurpassed Security of Network Data Transmission

The SafeNet Ethernet Encryptors Branch Office (SEE BO 10 and SEE BO 100) is a new encryption platform designed as a small desktop form factor to provide an integrated data security solution for point to point or meshed Ethernet links up to 100 Mbps. SEE Branch Office has been engineered to integrate transparently and simply into network architectures.

The SEE BO 10 and SEE BO 100 are the perfect complement to SEE 10G and SEE 1G Ethernet encryptors for enterprises needing a lower cost per megabit at the remote or branch office. At the same time the SEE Branch Office encryptor provides SMEs with a cost-effective security solution for their lower bandwidth requirements.
SafeNet Ethernet Encryptors provide strong performances benefits over traditional Layer-3 encryption solutions. Ultra-low latency and SafeNet’s zero-overhead encryption modes are just a few. The SEE delivers instant protection across the network to assure the security of data transmissions including sensitive financial or personally identifiable information. This family of high-performance Layer-2 security appliances protects networks from 10Mbps to 10Gbps and integrates seamlessly within minutes.

Addressing Security Standards

Using AES-256 keys, the industry standard for strong encryption, all Layer-2 payload data including IP addresses and higher level protocols are protected. Digital certificates are employed for remote device authentication and secure key exchange.

Central Policy Management Lowers Cost and Increases Security

Like all SafeNet high-speed security appliances, the SEE Branch Office is managed by the SafeNet Security Management Center (SMC), a robust Web-based policy management application that is easy to use, secure, and provides the advanced audit and monitoring capabilities necessary for security compliance. SMC provides the ability to define integrated security policies that can be distributed across multiple devices, reducing management complexity and cost.
