Cisco Cloud Services Platform 2100 and Cavium LiquidSecurity™ enable secure Crypto as a Service solution for NFV, Cloud and IaaS

Cisco and Cavium, Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable secure and intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, cloud, wired and wireless networking, today are announcing that Cisco is integrating Cavium’s LiquidSecurity™ family into the Cisco Cloud Services Platform(CSP) 2100. The CSP 2100 is a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) turn-key & open x86 Linux Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) software and hardware platform to run both Cisco and 3rd party virtual network services. The CSP 2100 bridges network, server, and security teams by offering several ways to manage and operate the platform. You can manage the platform via a GUI, CLI, REST API, and/or NetConf leveraging Cisco’s Network Services Orchestrator (NSO).
For virtual network services running on the CSP 2100 that require crypto processing and centralized key management, this joint solution enables security features and performance similar to dedicated hardware appliances while providing the benefits of reduced costs and complexity, flexibility, and speed of delivery. With availability in both FIPS and non-FIPS modes, the solution is targeted at both Enterprise and Service Provider markets for a variety of applications in the Cloud, Data Center, Point-of-Presence (POP), Central Office (CO), COLOs, Carrier Neutral Facilities (CNF), WAN Aggregation, DMZ, Core Network, and Server Farms. Example applications include Load Balancers, WAN Accelerators, Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), Routers, Security Gateways and IDS/IPS.
