This certification demonstrates CipherOptics’ commitment to the Federal market and the growing portion of the Commercial market that requires FIPS 140-2 certified products
Raleigh, NC (Vocus) May 12, 2010
CipherOptics announced today that its CipherEngine Enforcement Point (CEP) line of Group Encryption appliances has received Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certification for cryptographic modules, making them the first FIPS 140-2 validated products to offer Multi-layer, Next Generation IPsec VPN capabilities in a single appliance.
“This certification demonstrates CipherOptics’ commitment to the Federal market and the growing portion of the Commercial market that requires FIPS 140-2 certified products,” says Nick Lippis, independent industry analyst and publisher of the Lippis Report. “This achievement opens the door for federal agencies and government contractors to take full advantage of the multilayer flexibility of the CipherOptics solution, knowing that the product has met the FIPS security standard.”
The Federal Information Processing Standards are published security standards developed by the United States Federal government for use by all non-military agencies and government contractors. Federal data protection regulations mandate FIPS validated products, and many commercial entities now specify that any new security solution must meet the FIPS standard.
“This certification enables any government agency or commercial entity to leverage the proven security of a FIPS product with the proven performance of a CipherOptics solution,” said Thomas Gill, Chief Executive Officer of CipherOptics. “Organizations can now deploy network-level encryption over their existing infrastructure with a single FIPS validated solution.”
Capable of protecting data over layer 2, layer 3 or layer 4 networks, The CipherOptics Next Generation IPsec VPN Solution is able to meet both the Federal and Commercial market’s demand for increased data security while maintaining the any-to-any, low latency performance required by today’s communication and business processing applications.
