Certes Networks, a developer of encryption products to protect networked applications, has launched CryptoFlow Cloud, a software suite to protect sensitive data traveling in virtualized environments.

The company notes that six vendors have already selected Certes' products for encryption in network function virtualization (NFV) deployments, although it did not provide any names.

The CryptoFlow Cloud Solutions product is based on enhanced versions of Certes' vCEP and vCFNet encryption and policy enforcement points, which have now been extended to support NFV and other virtualized environments (see "Certes Networks explores virtualized security").

With CryptoFlow Cloud Solutions, enterprises and service providers can create fully secure, tunnel-less CryptoFlow VPNs that are anchored and enforced by Certes' encryptors in physical, virtual or hybrid environments. Certes' encryptors can operate in the cloud, as virtual machines with NFV orchestrators, as standalone appliances, as a virtualized encryptor on a hypervisor, or as an independently managed encryptor on a third-party device or network element.

The CryptoFlow VPNs protect sensitive data traffic over any network, allowing enterprises to set and control their own data protection policies and their own encryption keys. The software permit data traffic to be fully segregated to safeguard sensitive data, including credit card transactions, medical records, financial data, control data, and other critical data in motion.

"In the past 12 months, we have seen billions of dollars lost to data breaches across the world," said John Lochow, CEO of Certes Networks. "In almost every case, hackers were able to exploit poor network segmentation and inadequate data traffic security. Our CryptoFlow solutions provide a simple, unified point of control that permits you to secure your sensitive data traffic, set and enforce security policies, and ensure your applications are safe over any network."
