Newly Implemented Security Standards Bring the Power of Hybrid Cloud Storage to the Federal Government

PITTSBURGH, PA – January 6, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for the hybrid cloud, today announced that its FXT Edge Filers are now officially compliant with Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2. FIPS is a U.S. federal government computer security standard, used by many agencies that deal with sensitive but unclassified (SBU) information. Many highly regulated industries also leverage FIPS encryption standards, including healthcare and financial services.

Avere’s FXT Edge Filers are simple to install and manage, provide best-in-class NAS functionality (including NFS and SMB/CIFS), and cluster to deliver high availability, scalable performance and capacity. Furthermore, they provide record-setting speeds as both hardware and software-only solutions. Customers across a wide variety of industries, including media and entertainment, oil and gas, and life sciences already use Avere’s hybrid cloud storage solutions.

Avere FXT Edge Filers leverage the OpenSSL FIPS Object Module for data and network encryption. Avere sponsored the effort with the OpenSSL Project’s core development team to ensure that its support of FreeBSD is FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant. Not only does this ensure federal security compliance of all Avere products moving forward, but now any organization that wants to use FIPS-validated FreeBSD 9.2 OpenSSL software is free to do so.

“We recognize the critical importance of data security, especially with the recent increase in cyber attacks against both government agencies and private businesses,” says Scott Jeschonek, director of product management at Avere Systems. “Assuring 140-2 compliance by sponsoring OpenSSL’s FIPS module validation provides assurance to our customers that Avere is committed to data security of the highest standards.”

“With FIPS validation, government agencies of all types are now able to leverage our hybrid cloud storage solution,” said Ron Bianchini, CEO and co-founder of Avere Systems. We’re excited to help these organizations take advantage of cloud computing without significant changes to their infrastructure.”
