Infinidat cryptographic module achieves Federal Security validation

Published by Itnewsafrica on Fri, 16 Aug 2019

Hayden Sadler, Country Manager for Infinidat South Africa.Infinidat, a multi-petabyte data storage solutions company, recently announced that its cryptographic module for the InfiniBox and InfiniGuard has been awarded Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation. This designation validates Infinidats cryptographic technologies which certify Infinidat data storage and backup systems for use in a defined set of government and regulated industries IT projects.FIPS 140-2 validation is a requirement for any product that implements a cryptographic module that processes sensitive information and is used within the federal government. This standard is a joint effort by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States and the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) under the Canadian government while gaining worldwide recognition as a vital benchmark for third-party validation of cryptographic-enabled products of all kinds.The standard provides for increasing qualitative levels of security intended to cover a wide range of potential applications and environments. From a local perspective, this means that South African companies can [be] rest assured that their information is secure according to U.S. FIPS -validated encryption at any layer of the IT stack. By meeting these stringent security standards, we can ensure the highest protection of our clients' data, further bolstering our own local Personal Protection of Information (PoPI) legislation, says Hayden Sadler, Country Manager for Infinidat South Africa.Infinidat has partnered with Corsec Security, Inc., a security certification solutions provider, to facilitate the certification process. Corsec, for 2 decades, has assisted companies through the IT security certification process for FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria and the Department of Defenses APL. Completion of the FIPS 140-2 validation process is a testament to Infinidat's commitment to the storage needs of the U.S. government. Infinidat's adherence to security standards and U.S. government regulations should provide users with the peace of mind that they are being protected with a high degree of security, assurance, and dependability, said Jake Nelson, director of marketing at Corsec.Data breaches are rising at all levels of the IT stack- from user-level email attacks to data corruption and ransomware attacks to the theft of data as it is transported across unencrypted networks. End-to-end encryption is said to provide the highest level of data protection, regardless of whether it occurs in the hypervisor, database or application. Customers are looking to adopt end-to-end encryption, however, they are limited due to their dependency on data reduction in their All-Flash Arrays. InfiniBox architecture enables these customers to securely consolidate all their data while supporting end-to-end encryption.Infinidat has always worked to eliminate the trade-offs between cost, performance and availability. We are expanding on that effort to incorporate data security, at the highest standards, enabling customers to keep their data secure throughout its lifecycle. Our Scale to Win architecture supports FIPS-validated encryption at any layer of the IT stack while providing faster-than-all-flash performance and 100% data availability without penalizing cost or performance, said Brian Carmody, Infinidat CTO.Edited by Kojo EssahFollow Kojo Essah on TwitterFollow IT News Africa on Twitter
