Easy to Integrate

The SafeNet Security Management Center (SMC) redefines network security management with a robust, web-based, management platform that authenticates any number of SafeNet network encryptors

With SMC point-and-click, easy-to-use interface, and configuration wizards, it's simple to visualize, configure, modify, and manage network security through a 5 minute installation and deployment. SMC enables organizations to implement a broad range of security policies that can limit access to specific devices or provide unlimited access to the entire network.


Highly Secure and Scalable

The management communication between SMC and SafeNet encryptors is through highly secure channel communications, eliminating the possibility of spoofing or eavesdropping. 

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) architecture provides interoperability with enterprise network security management software suites for additional device and network monitoring options.
