SecureFX Supports FIPS 140-2

SecureFX® Supports FIPS 140-2

Companies required to comply with data security guidelines outlined by the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 140-2) or National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST 800-53) can use SecureFX to protect their data in transit.

Validated FIPS 140-2 Compliance

VanDyke Software is an authorized user of RSA Security, Inc.'s BSAFE Crypto-C Micro Edition cryptography module, which has been tested by Atlan Laboratories, an accredited testing laboratory for FIPS compliance. This module has met all Level 1 requirements for FIPS 140-2 compliance when operated in FIPS Mode*.

FIPS 140-2 compliance is sufficient to meet data security requirements outlined by HIPAA and SOX, so SecureFX (when in FIPS mode and using a secure file transfer protocol [SFTP and SCP]) may be used for secure file transfer operations of confidential financial and health information as well.

FIPS 140-2-Approved Algorithms

FIPS mode is an administrator option that disables data encryption algorithms that have not been approved. FIPS-approved algorithms that remain enabled include:

  • 3DES
  • AES
