SAN DIEGO, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online video conferencing innovator Nefsis® announced today the Nefsis FIPS Edition, designed for government agencies requiring FIPS 140-2 compliant web, VoIP and multipoint video conferencing services. Nefsis provides HD video conferencing to desktops and conference rooms, with a complete suite of live web collaboration tools. The new FIPS Edition provides government IT staff a viable option for providing desktop reach, more collaboration tools, and better support for remote locations that connect to headquarters offices securely via the Internet.
Nefsis FIPS Edition provides on-premise, customer-controlled access point and virtual conference servers that provide the ability for an organization to build a private cloud. The new components support FIPS 140-2 required security certificate, authentication, strong cipher, and end-to-end encrypted TLS connections allowing federal employees spread out geographically to participate in video conferences regardless of whether they connect via private network or public route.
The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) govern non-military U.S. government agencies and their contractors. FIPS 140 covers communications and cryptographic requirements and calls for the use of specific, secure protocols, methods, and configuration settings. These provide confidence through standardization and a higher level of security than non-compliant products and services.
"As part of our commitment to provide secure collaboration tools that allow Federal agencies to meet their mission objectives, we are pleased to introduce Nefsis FIPS Edition, adding secure desktop reach and more advanced collaboration tools to the government video conferencing market," said Steve Peltier, Nefsis Chief Executive Officer.
Nefsis FIPS Edition is available now. For additional information, contact Nefsis sales at http://www.Nefsis.com or call (858) 715-0970.
