ST. LOUIS, Missouri (PRWEB) November 22, 2005
Mobile Armor, LLC (http://www.MobileArmor.com), the leading provider of Enterprise Mobile Data Security (EMDS) solutions software for protecting critical electronic assets through centralized management, integrated authentication, and high-speed cryptography, announced today it has been awarded FIPS 140-2 validation for the MOBILE ARMOR Cryptographic Module. This validation includes Microsoft Windows, Linux and Windows Mobile platforms and provides an independent assessment that MOBILE ARMOR’s cryptographic implementation meets the Level 1 encryption standards for data security and integrity under the joint US National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) and Canadian Communications Security Establishment (CSE) Cryptographic Module Validation Program.
“Mobile Armor is pleased with the independent validation provided by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program,” said Chand Vyas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mobile Armor. “Our Government customers require strong encryption that has been independently tested for quality and effectiveness; we are pleased to provide Enterprise scalable solutions that make use of this validated security.”
FIPS 140-2 specifies the rigorous testing requirements that must be satisfied by a cryptographic module utilized within a security system protecting information within computer and telecommunication systems. The testing covers areas related to the secure design and implementation of a cryptographic module and include design and documentation, module interfaces, authorized roles and services, physical security, software security, operating system security, key management, electromagnetic interference/electromagnetic compatibility (EMI/EMC), cryptographic algorithms, and self-testing.
Government and private sector organizations constantly face pressure to protect vital information and the United States Government requires FIPS 140-2 Certification for cryptographic technologies deployed in most federal agencies to assure adherence to industry standards.
