Gigamon, the worldwide provider of network visibility and analytics, has announced it has been awarded a Level 2 Federal Information Processing Standards Publication (FIPS) 140-2 validation for its TLS/SSL inline decryption process, the company said.
The FIPS 140-2 validation empowers Gigamon to meet growing demand from federal agencies and their contractors that require strict security standards to protect sensitive information.
Like private industry, government agencies´ InfoSec teams were forced to adapt overnight to a fluid workforce to ensure their organizations´ data remains secure on- and off-premises. As agencies modernize their systems, they are faced with well-financed, motivated adversaries and an expanding attack surface, creating evolving challenges to protect high-value, sensitive data.
This latest validation fortifies the security market position Gigamon holds in the industry. Additional Gigamon certifications that meet US government requirements include: FIPS 140-2 (Level 1) validation, inclusion in Department of Defense (DoD) approved product list (DoDIN APL), NIAP Common Criteria, USGv6 accredited and Authorization to Operate (ATO) declarations on all levels of classifications for US DoD. In order to obtain the FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validation, Gigamon selected Booz-Allen Hamilton, a top provider of comprehensive US standards-based security testing services for IT and cryptographic products.
