Certes Networks

Since 2002, Certes Networks has delivered ground breaking, dependable solutions for encrypting sensitive traffic over data networks. With thousands of solutions deployed around the world, Certes delivers proven solutions for protecting data in financial services, health care, government, utilities, telecommunications, education and many other industries. Contact us today to learn how we can secure your mission-critical data traffic.


A new generation of devices and applications has changed how we work, compete, and make our businesses successful. But horror stories of high-profile data security breaches continue to pile up: credit card numbers stolen, emails hacked, VoIP calls intercepted, user identities stolen, webcam feeds hacked, proprietary secrets compromised, private data pushed into Cloud storage with no user controls … the list goes on. Security evolution has lagged behind the new generation of IT … until now. Certes Networks offers the new generation of security, for companies who want to gain all the efficiency and competitive advantage of modern IT, without putting themselves or their customers at risk.




Protect mission-critical data moving on any network without cutting capacity or creating management headaches. Certes provides CryptoFlow Next Generation VPNs that utilize network encryption appliances and virtual traffic encryptors that protect networked applications in the LAN, WAN, in data centers, the Internet, the Cloud … in any networked domain, physical or virtual. Certes’ solutions include the Certes Enforcement Point (CEP) appliances, from CEP-5 (5 Mbps) to CEP-10G (10 Gbps) and the Virtual Certes Enforcement Point (vCEP), a software-only version of the appliance, for Cloud and virtual deployments.


Certes offers products to meet the highest standards for security and usability with:


.   AES-256 encryption

.   Group keying and custom key derivation

.   SHA-512 with persistent traffic integrity by frame or packet

.   Performance from 3 Mbps to 10 Gbps


Certes Enforcement Point


Certes Enforcement Point (CEP) Variable Speed Encryption appliances will offload encryption processing from network devices and applications. Now your data in motion for any application can be secure and protected without compromising performance. Certes’ solutions are flexible and adaptable to provide tailored encryption for your targeted applications and networks, including IP encryption, Ethernet encryption, and encryption over untrusted networks or segments out of your control, such as the Internet or an MPLS network. Certes also offers the unique CEP5 product line. All Certes data encryption appliances support Certes’ groundbreaking CryptoFlow tunnel-less VPN technology, for flow-through security policy and group key management.


Virtual Certes Enforcement Point


The vCEP is the industry’s first virtual encryptor that protects enterprise data traffic in Cloud and virtual environments. Based on Certes networks’ award-winning CryptoFlow technology, the vCEP is compatible with VMware vSphere, ESX/ESXi or KVM hypervisors. The vCEP also can be deployed as a traffic encryptor in Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) deployments.

The vCEP provides data confidentiality and traffic integrity checking for sensitive data in motion across any network infrastructure. The solution permits the enterprise data owner to manage encryption keys and define and enforce encryption policies. Keys and policies are never exposed to the infrastructure or service provider.The vCEP uses proven Certes TrustNet group encryption technology to provide scalable network encryption without tunnels.


Data Protection You Can Trust


Our solutions utilize standards-based security protocols

.   AES 256 – The highest level of non-classified encryption

.   SHA-512 – Provides per frame and per packet traffic integrity

.   IPsec – The industry standard protocol for data in motion encryption

.   FIPS 140-2 – Government driven validation

.   Common Criteria EAL4+ Certified


The Performance You Demand


Our encryption solutions run at the maximum line rate for all packet sizes and link speeds

.   No other solution can outperform our line-rate encryption appliance. Not one.

.   Our Variable Speed Encryptors (VSEs) allow you to encrypt at your link speed, not one determined by a security vendor.

.   Our powerful TrustNet Manager policy management system advances VPN definition and set up to drag-and-drop, point-and-click simplicity, 

    cutting hours of error-ridden tunnel configuration.


The Flexibility You Need


We allow you to encrypt without changing your network or applications

.   Only Certes Networks can encrypt at Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 with a single solution, including Ethernet encryption and IP encryption.

.   Only Certes Networks provide end-to-end protection for traffic – supporting Cloud security, WAN security, LAN security, extended enterprise

    security –  all from a single interface and control point

.   We allow you to encrypt any network topology without creating point-to-point tunnels.

.   We preserve all headers, making encryption transparent to all network rules, services, and data flows.


Lowest Cost


We offer the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of any encryption solution

.   Our Variable Speed Encryption Appliances and “No Penalty Upgrade Program” means your security solution scales seamlessly as your needs


.   Our easy to install and simple to manage group encryption solution has 3x -5x TCO advantage over traditional IPsec VPN solutions.

.   Our performance advantage allows you to get the best performance from your network while achieving the highest level of security.
