Certes Networks vCEP Cloud Encryption Solution Achieves VMware-Ready Status

Certes Networks, a developer of network and cloud encryption solutions, has announced that its Virtual Certes Enforcement Point (vCEP) for cloud security has achieved VMware Ready status. This designation indicates that the vCEP has undergone detailed test procedures and is supported on VMware vSphere 5 for production environments.

“By using Virtual Certes Enforcement Point (vCEP) with VMware vSphere 5, enterprises can easily secure and cryptographically isolate sensitive data and works flows,” says Thomas Gill, CEO of Certes Networks. “In conjunction with our industry recognized policy and key management system, our customers are able to securely adopt cloud services and protect their data within both public and shared multi-tenant cloud infrastructures. The solution also allows our customers to maintain ownership and control of their own security policies and keys.”  

The vCEP uses proven Certes TrustNet group encryption technology to provide scalable network encryption without tunnels. The vCEP protects one or more virtual servers by enforcing the encryption and isolation policies specified in Certes TrustNet Manager (the centralized key and policy management system for TrustNet appliances). TrustNet Manager is designed for automated policy provisioning and integration with cloud operating environments.

The Virtual Certes Enforcement Point (vCEP) can be found within the online VMware Solution Exchange (VSX) at
