Corsec would like to congratulate our partner, Infinidat, for completing the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS 140-2) validation on their Infinidat Cryptographic Module.
To achieve this milestone, Infinidat partnered with Corsec, completing the validation at a Level 1 as seen in certificate #3468. For more information on the validation and to find additional details on the Crypto Module security policy, visit NIST’s validated modules site.
“Completion of the FIPS 140-2 validation process is a testament to Infinidat’s commitment to the storage needs of the U.S. government,” said Jake Nelson, director of marketing at Corsec. “Infinidat’s adherence to security standards and U.S. government regulations should provide users with the peace of mind that they are being protected with a high degree of security, assurance, and dependability.”

About FIPS 140-2
FIPS 140-2 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 stringent third-party assurance of security claims on any product containing cryptography that may be purchased by a government agency.
FIPS, which is mandated by law in the U.S. and very strictly enforced in Canada, 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. A FIPS 140-2 validation of a product provides end users with a high degree of product security, assurance, and dependability.
Infinidat helps customers empower data-driven competitive advantage at multi-petabyte scale. Infinidat’s software-based architecture, an evolution, and revolution in data management design over 30 years in the making, solves the conflicting requirements of bigger, faster, and less expensive storage. Infinidat technology simultaneously delivers sub-millisecond latency, industry-leading data availability, and hyperscale capacity with a significantly lower total cost of ownership than incumbent storage technologies.
