TIBCO LogLogic Products Achieve NIST's FIPS 140-2 Validation
PALO ALTO, CA, Jan 31, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), the provider of the industry's
premier scalable log and security intelligence platform for the
enterprise and cloud, announced today that the communications
cryptographic module used in certain TIBCO LogLogic(R) products
achieved Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS)
140-2 Validation: Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules.
FIPS 140-2 validation is a requirement for any cryptographic product
which will be used in a U.S. government agency network. The
Communications Cryptographic Module is used to provide cryptographic
services for the LogLogic(R) log management appliance line, including
series LX, ST, and MX appliances.
"Our FIPS 140-2 certification update shows our continued dedication
to meeting Federal agency security concerns," said TIBCO LogLogic
Senior Director of Product Marketing, Gary Hemminger. "This is an
important component in our overall strategy to provide secure
solutions to government buyers."
The FIPS 140-2 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. The Cryptographic Module Validation Program
(CMVP), headed by NIST, provides module and algorithm testing for
FIPS 140-2, which applies to Federal agencies using validated
cryptographic modules to protect sensitive government data in
computer and telecommunication systems. FIPS 140-2 provides
third-party assurance of cryptographic modules that have been
validated against a set of functional requirements for a product that
may be purchased by a government agency.
In order to expedite the FIPS 140-2 validation process, TIBCO
LogLogic partnered with Corsec Security, Inc., a consulting firm with
over 14 years of validation experience. "This is a tremendous
achievement for TIBCO LogLogic," said Matthew Appler, CEO and
co-founder, Corsec Security, Inc. "Their FIPS validation is a
demonstration of TIBCO's ongoing commitment to their customers and
the security of their data."
The FIPS standard, which is utilized by the U.S. and Canadian
governments, is also currently being reviewed by ISO to become an
international standard. FIPS 140-2 is gaining worldwide recognition
as an important benchmark for third party validations of encryption
products of all kinds. FIPS 140-2 validation of the TIBCO LogLogic
communications cryptographic module will provide users with a high
degree of security, assurance, and dependability.
