Cryptographic Modules Protect Sensitive Information for Government Agencies and Enterprises
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 13, 2017 – Enova Technology, a market leader in innovative encryption security solutions, today announced its X-Wall MX+ xF and X-Wall MX+ xN advanced cryptographic modules have gained full approval from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 and Level 2 validation with certification numbers 3013 and 3014 respectively.
- US government agencies are required to purchase security products that have received FIPS 140-2 validation. Enterprises rely on the validation as an impartial, independent review that further ensures the security capabilities of the products they purchase.
- When protecting sensitive data, government agencies need to have a minimum level of assurance that a product’s stated security claim is valid. FIPS validation is globally accepted as one of the most trusted security validations.
- FIPS validation requires rigorous testing and inspection in order to be certified by NIST. FIPS validated products go through a comprehensive review by government-approved laboratories, as well as a review by NIST and Communications Security Establishment (CSE) authorities.
- Robert Wann, CEO, Enova Technology, said: “When the protection of sensitive information and critical communications is required, government agencies and business need to know that a product’s stated security claim is valid. The X-Wall MX+ xF and X-Wall MX+ xN FIPS 140-2 certified single chip crypto modules are capable of encrypting entire SATA disk drive or SSD in-line at 6Gbps (6 giga bit per second) using AES CBC 256-bit strength. The modules require no extra software driver therefore is independent from all operating systems. With FIPS 140-2 validation, Enova’s cryptographic modules meet the growing security needs of government agencies and business applications today.”
