U.S. Department of Defense certifies Xirrus for mission critical wireless installments

Xirrus, high-performance wireless networks, announced
that its XN8 Wi-Fi Array has been granted certification by the U.S. Department
of Defense (DoD) Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) for
interoperability with Defense Department networks and has been validated within
the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 for cryptographic

The Xirrus XN8 Wi-Fi Array has been added to the Unified
Capabilities Approved Product List (UC APL) and is being deployed to support
mission critical applications across Federal agencies.

“Xirrus is committed to meeting the unique wireless
security requirements of Federal customers with its secure, high-performance
wireless technology. We are the only company that doesn’t force its Federal
customers to choose between security and performance for their Wi-Fi network
because we excel in both areas,” said Mike Miller, vice president of Xirrus

Any Federal agencies or Systems Integrators that service
the Federal market that are interested in adopting a secure wireless network,
will now be able to do so at speeds much greater than ever before.

In addition to these certifications, Xirrus wireless products integrate with ForeScout CounterACT, an automated security
control platform for Network Access Control (NAC), mobile security and endpoint

CounterACT, which has been successfully deployed in
numerous federal and military sites to meet Comply-to-Connect requirements,
enables IT organizations to achieve continuous real-time visibility and policy

Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays, when teamed with CounterACT, helps
IT further manage mobile security threats by applying granular policies for
users and mobile devices, such as notebooks, smartphones and tablets to
determine access to network resources – regardless of applied credentials and
without requiring agents.

The ability to apply a uniform access, guest network,
and endpoint security policies within complex and dynamic environments is
essential in order to defend mission critical resources and sensitive data,”
said Sam Davis, vice president of business development at ForeScout
