CS100 with RRP of AUD 8100 is “a category killer…the first offering of 100 Mbps performance at such a low pricepoint.” John DuBois, Senetas CEO
(PRWEB) June 16, 2010
Senetas Corporation, the world-leading designer and developer of high speed network encryption hardware, today released Senetas CS100, a new cost-effective branch office encryptor designed to run at 100 Mbps, fully interoperable with the company’s ultra-high-speed network encryption hardware.
Senetas CEO, John DuBois said the CS100 with RRP of AUD 8100 was “a category killer…the first offering of 100 Mbps performance at such a low pricepoint.”
He said CS100 was the result of ongoing R&D effort to further extend the company’s small, paperback-sized 10 Mbps CS encryption platform, originally known as CypherStream. But rather than use the smallest footprint for this faster device, the CS100 employs a thin (1U) 19” standard rack-mount design to allow it to be installed into communications racks for small to mid-sized businesses and to provide branch to head office security for enterprise customers.
The CS100 is configurable for either Layer 2 Ethernet or Layer 3 IPSec networks and delivers 100 Mbps data throughput, secured by industry standard AES 256 bit encryption algorithms. It is also crypto-agile, meaning it can be used with custom algorithms, which are required by governments such as Japan, Korea and parts of South East Asia.
Mr DuBois said CS100 was an evolutionary product which had been extensively tested internally and well exceeded its nominal speed rating, “it runs at a true 100 Mbps over IPSec and offers very low latency of only one millisecond, which is an excellent result.”
Mr DuBois said the encryptor was built by Senetas to the Common Criteria EAL4+ standard and is due to be submitted for EAL certification next financial year. Senetas CS100 uses the same automated key management functionality as the faster CN family of encryptors, has a tamper proof rack mount design, and has passed all required regulatory testing.
