National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Awards RigNet’s Cyphre its Highest Security Validation
FIPS 140-2 is recognized worldwide as one of the highest standards for security validation. It requires the most rigorous lab-tested 3rd party verification that certifies that a security appliance meets the highest standards for cryptographic technology. Recipients must prove that they have a combination of the latest encryption and manufacturing controls that eliminate known vulnerabilities. FIPS 140-2 certification is recognized and comparable to other national standards making Cyphre’s solutions globally accepted. With organizations seeking to secure their IT infrastructure with the best available technology, these certifications are often a pre-requisite for the informed buyer.
“We are proud to announce our FIPS 140-2 validation from NIST and our BlackTIE patent. These are key milestones for Cyphre,” said
BlackTIE® embedded in RigNet’s Cyphre solutions can completely isolate the generation and storage of all cryptographic materials and operations. This provides unmatched security when compared to typical firewall implementations that are easily compromised by sophisticated and persistent attacks.
By receiving the FIPS 140-2 validation, Cyphre is perfectly positioned to provide regulated markets, such as energy, healthcare, financial and telecommunications, as well as government agencies subject to strict regulation, the critical information security required and the military-grade solution they need to keep their networks and data secure.
