Certes Networks is a Pittsburgh-based information security company, notable as one of the leaders in policy and key management for products that protect data in motion for sensitive enterprise applications.

Certes has been identified by security industry analysts as one of the companies developing the "software-defined security" space, the evolution of enterprise security architectures to be virtualized and decoupled from the enterprise network infrastructure. Certes' work in software-defined security has been cited in Gartner trend reports on Mobile Security, Cloud Security, Virtualization and Enterprise Mobile Software.

The company's products create virtualized security overlays that protect enterprise applications in Local Area Networks, Wide Area Networks, Internet, Cloud, Mobile and Virtualized environments. The products conduct role-based access control and utilize cryptographic segmentation to protect application flows.

Certes software-defined security products are deployed as part of Network Function Virtualization offerings from Ciena,[1] Cyan,[2] RAD,[3] Luxoft[4] and Overture.[5]

Certes counts customers in 84 countries, including: 158 banks and financial services organizations; 130 governments and governmental agencies; 45 multi-national corporations and Fortune 100 firms; more than 100 hospitals, utilities, professional services firms and others.
