FatPipe Networks has announced that FatPipe’s SD-WAN and other hybrid networking solutions running appliances and virtual appliances have been certified for Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2 (FIPS 140-2).
The inclusion of FIPS-140-2 is part of a continual strategy to ensure best-practice certification, the company said.
FatPipe’s crypto module is an essential part of business continuity planning for VPN connectivity. It is integrated with several Kernel Space cryptographic algorithms and other security mechanisms.
“Adherence to standards such as FIPS are regulated requirements but also form best practice for the wider enterprise market to ensure that security products are able to withstand attacks,” said Sanch Datta, FatPipe’s president and CTO. “With this update, we continue our commitment to maintaining our products to meet both current and evolving government security regulations.”
FIPS 140-2 is the US government computer security standard used to approve cryptographic modules to ensure they meet the necessary standards to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the information protected by the module. The security requirements cover areas related to the secure design and implementation of a cryptographic module including module specification, interfaces, roles, services and authentication.
FatPipe’s SD-WAN solutions are available via the company’s channel partners.
