Enova Technology Receives FIPS 140-2 Validation for X-Wall MX Cryptographic Modules

Cryptographic Modules Protect Sensitive Information for
Government Agencies and Enterprises

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 26, 2012 – Enova Technology, a market leader in innovative encryption security solutions, today announced its X-Wall MX-256 (AES ECB 256-bit) and X-Wall MX-256C (AES CBC 256-bit) advanced cryptographic modules have gained full approval from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation.

News Facts:

US government agencies are required to purchase security products that have received FIPS 140-2 validation. Enterprises rely on the validation as an impartial, independent review that further ensures the security capabilities of the products they purchase.
When protecting sensitive data, government agencies need to have a minimum level of assurance that a product’s stated security claim is valid. FIPS validation is globally accepted as one of the most trusted security validations.
FIPS validation requires rigorous testing and inspection in order to be certified by NIST. FIPS validated products go through a comprehensive review by government-approved laboratories, as well as a review by NIST and Communications Security Establishment (CSE) authorities.

Robert Wann, CEO, Enova Technology, said:
“When the protection of sensitive information and critical communications is required, government agencies and enterprises need to know that a product’s stated security claim is valid. LinkedIn’s recent data breach may have exposed more than 6 million passwords due to inadequate encryption techniques, further illustrating the necessity of trusted security validations in IT products. The X-Wall MX-256 and 256C are SATA-to-SATA single chip crypto modules capable of encrypting entire SATA disk drive or solid-state drive, be it a boot drive or a data drive, at a sustained data throughput of 120MB/sec. With FIPS 140-2 validation, Enova’s cryptographic modules meet the growing security needs of government agencies and enterprises today.”
