With ever decreasing budgets, limited IT resources and simultaneously increasing threats, we understand government agencies have different needs than corporate users. The past fiscal year cyber security threats more than doubled and over the past decade more than 1.1 billion compromised records were reported. We live in an era where everything from insider threats to hackers are causing devastating effects on people’s lives and careers.
Government mandated compliance is necessary to ensure we continue moving in the direction of setting up good offensive strategies to defend against an increasing hostile world of cyber attacks, especially important when perimeter defenses are breached. Ensuring your data-at-rest is unusable is if the bad guys get through is as critical as placing armed guards at the entrance.
NetLib received the FIPS 140-2 validation for its patented data security platform, Encryptionizer® for SQL Server. Our FIPS 140-2 encryption software transparently protects sensitive information in government agencies at all levels (Federal, state and local) and military installations, as well as government vendors to help them comply with the FIPS 140-2 requirement and become FIPS 140-2 Validated.
FIPS 140-2 Encryption Software is required for military installations, goverment agencies and groups who must comply with the FIPS 140-2 standard. Also, any companies, agencies or developers who seek to have their products approved for use in government and military departments that collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate classified and “sensitive, but un-classified (SBU)” information must also comply with the FIPS 140-2 standard.
Becoming FIPS 140-2 validated demonstrates that a product’s stated security claim is valid according to legislative security restrictions set forth by government agencies for cryptographic modules.
What is FIPS 140-2?
FIPS stands for the Federal Information Processing Standard. FIPS 140-2 , issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is a U.S. government computer security standards program used to accredit cryptographic modules produced by private sector vendors. FIPS 140-2 Validated modules go through an extensive development, testing and validation process to gain the validation certificate from NIST.
NetLib’s Encryptionizer can help you protect your data and achieve FIPS 140-2 Validation.
