Kaspersky Lab’s encryption technologies for business end-point security software solutions have been certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as fully compliant with the America’s Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 standard

In a new development, Kaspersky Lab’s encryption technologies for business end-point security software solutions  have been certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as fully compliant with the America’s Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 standard. The FIPS 140-2 is the national computer security standard for the United States of America and introduces strict requirements for the operation of a cryptographic module. The independent assessment by this reputable authority, along with similar certifications in other countries, confirms the efficiency and safety of encryption routines available for Kaspersky Lab’s corporate customers.
The certification applies to Kaspersky Lab’s cryptographic module –part of Kaspersky endpoint security for business and other corporate solutions. It offers the encryption of files stored on computers and removable media, as well as full-disk encryption, deployment and management of data protection strategies, in a centralized form, according to a security policy. The cryptographic module supports a variety of industry-proven encryption algorithms.
This FIPS 140-2 certification not only provides independent confirmation of the efficiency of Kaspersky Lab’s encryption technologies, it makes it simple for business customers to make purchasing decisions. Customers in the government sector and other regulated industries, such as financial and healthcare institutions, that collect, store, transfer and share and sensitive information are typically required to use FIPS-certified solutions for compliance reasons. With the certification of Kaspersky Lab’s cryptographic module, corporate customers can benefit from Kaspersky Lab specialized security solutions while complying with regulations of their organization.
“Our goal is to ensure that our solutions meet all the requirements of businesses around the world, including government regulations. Being compliant with FIPS 140-2 supports the successful execution of our enterprise business strategy in the USA and Canadian markets, and provides all current and potential customers with yet more proof that our data protection technologies meet the strictest requirements for data safety”, says Kirill Kertsenbaum, Enterprise Solutions Director, Kaspersky Lab.
