Whether an organization is moving aggressively or cautiously into cloud-based services,
the reality is that just about every enterprise will have a hybrid mix of services—including
on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud—in place at any given time. As a result,
an organization’s sensitive assets will often need to be transported across a wide area
network (WAN) as data and processing are shared across these geographically distributed
deployments. To build a trusted hybrid multi-site infrastructure, enterprises need to employ
encryption to secure the transport of data across their WANs, while at the same time, ensuring
high-speed and low-latency communications between these distributed sites.

  • 2. Securing Communications in the Cloud SECURITY GUIDE Overview• Boost user productivity. Whether an organization is moving aggressively or cautiously into cloud-based services, Through its high performance the reality is that just about every enterprise will have a hybrid mix of services—including and reliability, SafeNet enables authorized users to on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud—in place at any given time. As a result, quickly and securely transfer an organization’s sensitive assets will often need to be transported across a wide area communications, media, and network (WAN) as data and processing are shared across these geographically distributed other data from the enterprise deployments. To build a trusted hybrid multi-site infrastructure, enterprises need to employ to the cloud—optimizing encryption to secure the transport of data across their WANs, while at the same time, ensuring productivity. high-speed and low-latency communications between these distributed sites.• Lower costs. By eliminating costly overhead for expensive The Role of Network Encryption in the Cloud transport pipes and providing Today, SafeNet offers advanced Layer 2 encryption solutions that enable organizations to full throughput, SafeNet secure WAN communications in a virtualized cloud environment—while eliminating the offers immediate cost savings in the cloud and across the challenges and obstacles presented by traditional IPsec encryption approaches. High-speed enterprise. In addition, as Layer 2 encryption technology introduces zero-protocol overhead so that maximum bandwidth your cloud model evolves, is available for data to move to the cloud – up to 50% more efficient than competing new devices can be added technologies. This solution provides the fastest network encryption available for real-time easily into your existing cloud communications and data transfer, operating at true line speed. environment by centralizing and streamlining security SafeNet Ethernet Encryptors provide the administrative efficiency, and optimized administration, management, performance and bandwidth utilization that make it ideally suited to enterprise hybrid cloud and enforcement. environments.• Increase business agility. Inherently, cloud offerings enable organizations to scale or contract much more quickly On-premise Private and cost-effectively than if they were relying on internally hosted infrastructures. Through its support of dynamic cloud environments, SafeNet provides organizations with an unparalleled ability to High Speed Encryptor take advantage of the cloud’s flexibility to more quickly adapt to changing requirements.
