Active Directory integration company Centrify, which just released a complete overhaul to its product lineup with Centrify Suite 2012, has gained FIPS 140-2 Level 1 Compliance certification. In plain old English, it means Centrify’s lineup complies with security standards needed by government agencies and large enterprises alike. Read on for the details …
Centrify Suite 2012 is now officially anointed by the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) as compliant with “140-2 Level 1 validation from the Cryptographic Module Validation Program.” Yes, it’s a mouthful, but Centrify also claims it’s the first active directory unification “bridge” solution that meets these requirements. This security “benchmark” ensures the authentication and security management features of Centrify Suite 2012, a.k.a. the Centrify Cryptographic Module, have passed or exceeded a barrage of tests to ensure they’re secure enough for government work. These very tests also ensure Mac OS X and Linux operating systems are fully compliant with the FIPS standard.
Centrify noted it has seen recent success with governmental implementations, and “[an] expanding Federal channel” that has taken a liking to the company’s solutions. With this new certification, Centrify believes resellers have a newfound ability to attack government vertical opportunities where security and cross-platform computing are not just necessary but paramount. As channel players look to differentiate themselves and consumerization of IT grows across the entire IT industry, Centify Suite could be the unique tool that makes a difference.
