Date:
Pulse Secure, a leading provider of secure access solutions to both enterprises and service providers, has announced that Pulse Connect Secure and Pulse Policy Secure running on Pulse Secure Appliance (PSA) appliance series and virtual appliances have been certified for the Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2 (FIPS 140-2) following testing by an accredited Cryptographic Module Testing laboratory.

FIPS 140-2 is the U.S. government computer security standard used to approve cryptographic modules to ensure they meet the necessary standards to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the information protected by the module. The security requirements cover areas related to the secure design and implementation of a cryptographic module including module specification, interfaces, roles, services and authentication.

The inclusion of FIPS-140 is part of a continual strategy to ensure best practice certification. Earlier in the year, both products were certified to meet the U.S. Department of Defense DoD Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products List (APL) following a successfully completed certification at the approved distributed testing center at the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) at Fort Huachuca near Sierra Vista, Arizona, USA.

“Adherence to standards such as FIPS and UC/APL are regulated requirements but also form best practice for the wider enterprise market to ensure that security products are themselves able to withstand attack,” said Prakash Mana, Head of Product for Pulse Secure, “With this update, we continue our commitment to maintaining our products to meet both current and evolving government security regulations."
