Cipher X 7100 Frame Relay Encryption provides various speeds in a single hardware platform reducing the costs and optimizing the circuit data rate and number of private virtual circuits for each Cipher X frame relay encryptor at your remote sites. This innovative approach allows customers to install a Cipher X 7100 data encryptor on your public frame relay network today at the circuit data rate and the number of secure private virtual circuits (PVCs) you need and remotely upgrade to a higher speed circuit or add PVCs when needed. With Cipher X 7100 Frame Relay network encryption, you can tailor your hardware encryption needs quickly and easily as your corporate needs expand, while protecting your hardware investment.This allows you to pay for only the system you need today with options to upgrade in the future.
Seamless Network Overlay
Cipher X 7100 Frame Relay Encryption is network transparent. Since it only encrypts the data in a frame relay packet, no changes to the network are required. Additionally, it secures data at the frame relay layer so it can also protect SNA, BSC, IP or other protocols encapsulated in frame relay.
Automated Key and Device Management
Secure network monitoring, configuration, and diagnostics of a large, global network of Cipher X units can be easily, centrally and securely managed by using TCC's KEYNET Release 2
An intuitive drag and drop user-interface enables network managers to easily create secure networks. Additional units can be quickly added or, more importantly, removed if the unit is stolen or physically compromised. Centralized reporting of errors and alarms, combined with remote troubleshooting at the KEYNET system, reduces the time and cost of maintenance. It also seamlessly integrates with an enterprise network management system.
A security policy is also easily enforced by the Cipher X system. Each frame relay virtual circuit is designated as cipher (secure), clear, or blocked. This is transparent to the user thereby eliminating training, user acceptance, and enforcement issues. A single Cipher X system can control access for all 1,024 virtual circuits in a frame relay connection making it a very cost effective solution.
