Gemalto puts speed, performance and security in encryption solutions Gemalto launches SafeNet Luna HSM and SafeNet High Speed Encryptors solutions

Digital security provider Gemalto has launched two solutions that aim to provide enterprises with speed, performance and security when encrypting data across the cloud and enterprise applications and high speed networks.

The first is the SafeNet Luna HSM (Hardware Security Module), a platform that will perform the highest number of simultaneous cryptographic operations including encryption, decryption, authentication and digital signing while providing total, tamper-resistant protection for cryptographic keys. The new capabilities enable enterprises to support encryption at massive scale and secure even larger volumes of encryption keys that protect sensitive information and applications in the cloud and on-premise.

With up to 10,000 RSA-2048 or 20,000 ECC P-256 operations per second, the SafeNet Luna HSMs easily scales to support the execution requirements in a number of markets such as IoT, Blockchain and data encryption. The new SafeNet CN9100 High Speed Encryptor, developed by Gemalto and encryption partner Senetas, encrypts network traffic at Layer 2 to protect information sent across networks, between corporate offices and into the cloud at native speeds of 100 Gbps.

The second is the 100 Gbps SafeNet High Speed Encryptror that offers enhanced performance and security to protect data and sensitive communications across large-scale, high-capacity networks.

Todd Moore, Senior Vice President of Encryption Products at Gemalto, said: "As organisations increasingly embrace the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based applications, their requirements to cope with big data intensify. Streamlined management of data security controls have become vital in securing data as it moves between enterprises, multi-cloud environments, networks and devices.

"This necessitates organisations to conduct  more cryptographic operations in the same, or a shorter amount of time, which means they need  an easy, scalable way to attach security directly to the data in order to protect it while in motion and at rest."
