Certes Networks Releases TrustNet Manager

Certes Networks, a provider of scalable network encryption, is pleased to announce the release and general availability of TrustNet Manager. TrustNet Manager is a web-based management platform that provides organizations with the ability to secure networks and achieve regulatory compliance while reducing the cost of deploying, managing and maintaining the encrypted network.
TrustNet Manager’s drag-and-drop security policy builder is said to simplify provisioning and makes it easy to deploy multi-layer encryption and security policies, which saves operating expense and helps avoid data breaches. TrustNet Manager also reduces network downtime and costly configuration mistakes by automatically validating configurations before they are deployed. For organizations bound by government or industry regulations, TrustNet Manager provides powerful logging and auditing capabilities that help establish, maintain and prove regulatory compliance.
TrustNet Manager makes it easy to follow the security best practice of separation of duties by providing role-based access to multiple users. Role-based access gives security teams control of the encryption keys and network security policies, while allowing them to delegate device and network management to the network team or service provider. This feature can improve security and reduce the cost of maintaining a secure network by allowing network management to be outsourced, without relinquishing control of the security.
Based on a clustered server architecture with disaster recovery capabilities, TrustNet Manager is able to dynamically generate and deliver periodic key updates. This makes it difficult for hackers to decrypt traffic due to the constant replacement of security keys. TrustNet Manager can also be deployed as a cluster of virtual servers, avoiding the cost of adding additional physical servers to the security infrastructure.
As part of the planned roadmap, TrustNet Manager will provide a platform for securing server-to-server communications, no matter where the servers reside, while retaining control of the keys and allowing transparent virtual server provisioning and migration. TrustNet Manager will act as a bridge between existing physical encryption devices and virtual server-based encryption agents, which are planned for release in early 2012. With these features, customers will be able to use Certes Networks’ group keying technology to encrypt traffic among physical and virtual servers in private data centers or private and public clouds. Because TrustNet Manager will allow customers, rather than cloud providers, to control encryption keys and policies for data flows in and out of the cloud, security and compliance objectives can now be met while taking advantage of the cost savings of the cloud.
