Flagship Wireless Intrusion Prevention Product Meets High Standard Required for DoD Installations
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF., - January 3, 2012-AirTight® Networks, the leading provider of wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) products and services, today announced that its flagship wireless security product, SpectraGuard® Enterprise, achieved FIPS 140-2 validation from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the United States and the Communications Security Establishment of Canada (CSEC).
"With the proliferating information security threat landscape, government and defense agencies need advanced products to protect their networks and information assets. AirTight offers the most complete wireless policy management and enforcement solutions to both Wi-Fi and no Wi-Fi agency networks," said Dr. Hemant Chaskar, Vice President of Technology at AirTight. "AirTight's products are deployed worldwide in many of the most security sensitive United States government and defense organizations to assure security and comply with requirements such as DoD 8420.01, FISMA and guidelines from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Because AirTight products are always kept up-to-date with certifications such as FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria and DISA; government and defense agencies can take advantage of our best-of-breed wireless security technology for their networks."
"Although the standards were developed to assure that government agencies and those who provide technology to those agencies met the highest standards for security, it is becoming increasingly common for many non-government enterprises to ensure that they deploy robust products in their IT infrastructure. AirTight's validation with the above certifications provides solid proof of the security robustness of its product," continued Dr. Chaskar.
