Cipher X® 7210 Network Security Device

Cipher X 7210 Network Encryption

Network Security Device with KEYNET Network Security Manager

The Cipher X 7210 network security device is the 100 Mb/s model of the 10 Gb/s family of TCC Cyber Security Appliances. The Cipher X 7210 is ideally suited for applications with low-bandwidth requirements, such as remote offices. It integrates seamlessly into existing networks without degrading network performance. Its hardware-based Layer 2, 3, and 4 encryption engines encrypt and decrypt outbound and inbound traffic at full wire speed. Its powerful Security Policy management sets the criteria for encrypting, blocking or passing traffic through.

Product Benefits

  • 100 Mb/s Full Duplex Wire Speed Encryption
  • Layer 2/3/4 Network Security Device
  • Native AES-256 Symmetric Key Encryption
  • Security Policy management criteria for encrypting, decrypting, blocking or passing-through traffic based on:
    - VLAN tags
    - Source & Destination addresses
    - Protocol and Port numbers
  • Multi-layer key and device management
  • Cost-effective IP encryption solution

Network Encryption Solution Seamlessly Overlays on Networks

The Cipher X 7210 is the 100 Mb/s model of the family of TCC Cyber Security Appliances. Fully interoperable with the Cipher X 7211 and 7220, the Cipher X family offers network security from 100 Mb/s up to 10 Gb/s.

The Cipher X 7210 enables data to securely transit networks over fiber, satellite or microwave, including multicast applications such as secure video conferencing. The wire speed Cipher X 7210 is a tunnel-less, Layer 2, 3 or 4 solution, which overlays on top of existing or new networks — no network architecture changes are required.

Optimum Flexibility

The Cipher X 7210 is highly flexible, supporting a broad array of network security applications. The Security Policy Manager sets the criteria for the treatment of network traffic based on users' operational requirements. Users can define encryption, blocking, or plain pass-through treatment of traffic based on VLAN tags; Source & Destination addresses; Protocol and Port numbers.

Network Encryption with Scalable Performance Protects Your Investment

With performance up to 100 Mb/s, the Cipher X 7210 minimizes the entry cost of deploying a security solution, while the Cipher X 7211 (1 Gb/s) and 7220 (10 Gb/s) network security appliances provide the upgrade path to higher performance.

Network Encryption with Superior-Grade Security
KEYNET for IP Encryption Management

The Cipher X 7210 is a FIPS 140-2 Level 2 designed encryption solution with multiple layers of protection. The AES 256-bit algorithm in Galois Counter Mode provides superior-grade encryption and authentication.

A three-tier symmetric key management architecture integrating the Cipher X 7210 and KEYNET Network Security Manager maximizes network security. The Cipher X 7210's embedded key vault processor securely manages system security parameters, generates local data encryption keys and ensures cryptographic integrity, while KEYNET Network Security Manager provides security configuration and key management.

Security Policies

CipherONE Security Policy management allows users to set infinite individual Security Policies for the Cipher X 7210 Policy Enforcement Engine to encrypt, block or pass-through traffic, based on the Ethernet Frame and IP Packet headers information, including VLAN tags; Source & Destination addresses; Protocol and Port numbers. Policies can be Point-to-Point, Global, or Single-Ended to easily secure unicast or multicast traffic.
