SafeNet Fibre Channel encryptors address the needs of large enterprises that have a requirement to secure sensitive information in flight within Storage Area Networks (SANs). Providing highly secure, full line rate data encryption, our platforms are also the ideal solution for securing data in transit between SANs at 1, 2 or 4 Gbps.

SafeNet’s CN1000 Series Encryptors can support speeds up to 1 Gbps while the CN6040 Encryptor supports up to 4 Gbps for Fibre Channel. Both feature interoperability, proven performance and dependability, and certifications for FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria.
