Networking security technology developer Senetas (ASX:SEN) has incorporated increased VLAN security into its high-speed network encryption platform.
The company has upgraded its Senetas CN1000/3000 encryptors to allow them to protect up to 512 virtual LANs at 1Gbps and up to 64 virtual LANs at 10Gbps, using an encryption policy based on VLAN tags rather than the standard MAC addresses.
“VLAN separation alone cannot provide even a minimum level of security... the technology has not been designed with security in mind,” Senetas chief technologist Julian Fay said.
“To reduce a network's susceptibility to data theft or network subversion, encryption should be deployed.”
