SAN JOSE, Calif., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Enova Technology, a market leader in innovative encryption security solutions, today announced its X-Wall MX-256 (AES ECB 256-bit) and X-Wall MX-256C (AES CBC 256-bit) advanced cryptographic modules have gained full approval from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation.
- 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 enterprises need to know that a product's stated security claim is valid. LinkedIn's recent data breach may have exposed more than 6 million passwords due to inadequate encryption techniques, further illustrating the necessity of trusted security validations in IT products. The X-Wall MX-256 and 256C are SATA-to-SATA single chip crypto modules that are capable of encrypting an entire SATA disk drive or solid-state drive, be it a boot drive or a data drive, at a sustained data throughput of 120MB/sec. With FIPS 140-2 validation, Enova's cryptographic modules meet the growing security needs of government agencies and enterprises today."
