London, United Kingdom, December 19, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Storage Made Easy today announced that the Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Fabric™
platform’s cryptographic module is Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 140‐2 (FIPS 140-2) validated having been certified compliant by a third-party testing lab
. The FIPS 140-2 validation process examines the algorithms used in the cryptographic component of the software. The FIPS 140-2 security designation represents the highest level of data encryption and is recognized for its thoroughness. It is a mandatory requirement for providing services to federal government and other highly secured organizations.
The Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Fabric solution provides a governance hub for on-premises and on-cloud data stores enabling common policies and restrictions to be set across the fabric of a company’s corporate data assets. It can also provide additional security controls such as AES 256 encryption to provide re-assurance over and above generic "at rest" security that storage or cloud providers may provide.
Storage Made Easy’s use of FIPS 140-2 compliant algorithms for cryptography makes it suitable for protecting sensitive personal data on third party data stores and is fit for purpose for GDPR data protection requirements in which the encryption is transparent to end users.
Jim Liddle, CEO of Storage Made Easy, said: “We are well known for providing a unique governance solution across corporate data stores. The Enterprise File Fabric product is used by some of the best-known companies in the world as well as across government bodies, healthcare and finance organizations. Why do companies choose the Enterprise File Fabric? The reason is that when it comes down to it no-one really offers an end-to-end governance and compliance enforcement platform like we do and the alternative is cobbling together and integrating a number of third party solutions which not only leads to cost but also additional risk. FIPS 1402-2 validation is key for one specific feature we offer, encryption of third party data and we view it as another milestone on our enterprise journey and an additional assurance for our customers.”
