FatPipe Security: FIPS 140-2 & Web Filtering


The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, (FIPS PUB 140-2), is a U.S. and Canadian concerted effort to impart computer security standard helps impute cryptographic modules for hardware and software products, issued and published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) U.S. and has been embraced by the Canadian government’s Communication Security Establishment (CSE). FIPS is concurrently administered by NIST and CSE under the parasol of the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP).

FatPipe web filter can monitor and screen SSL/HTTPS web pages and enforces internet usage policy by blocking access to websites and internet application. The content can be blocked by site using URLS and specific file types. FatPipe encryption supports AES, 3DES, SHA1 and MD5. It provides standard encryption with IPSec and GRE encapsulation and can establish VPN/GRE tunnels with 3rd party security appliances while undergoing FIPS 140-2 certification. FatPipe cloud hosted security enhances cloud-based firewall and SWG deployments where the traffic is tunneled to cloud gateway using GRE or IPSec tunnels and trusted locations can be propagated to branches for more efficient routing. FatPipe products are FIPS 140-2 certification pending.
