AirTight SpectraGuard achieves FIPS 140-2 validation

AirTight Networks, a provider of wireless intrusion
prevention (WIPS) products and services, announced its 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 
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,” Chaskar added.
