The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded Qumulo a FIPS 140-2 certificate for Qumulo Secure TLS KDF.
FIPS 140-2 is a NIST standard used to approve cryptography-related algorithms and cryptographic modules. Federal agencies and many regulated industry customers are required to procure only FIPS 140-2 approved equipment. These organizations routinely mandate FIPS compliance as a standardized way to meet their security needs.
NIST issued certificate A1394 after Qumulo Secure was tested and verified by an independent lab to meet rigorous federal requirements. Qumulo Secure TLS KDF is a component of the Qumulo Secure cryptographic module that provides a TLS v1.2 KDF implementation for the Qumulo Core software solution.
“A crucial element of Qumulo’s security strategy is to create the best operational and technical security framework,” said Kathy Ahuja, VP, of Information Security at Qumulo. “Our security program has a clear goal in mind. We want to assure our customers and business partners that we have the procedures and protocols in place to protect their data’s privacy, accuracy, and accessibility.”
Qumulo also recently launched the Qumulo Trust Center, to provide clear information about its data privacy and security policies, procedures, and operations. Qumulo is committed to assisting its clients in understanding how it safeguards client data, upholding client privacy, and adhering to legal requirements.
“At Qumulo, we are all committed to safeguarding our customers’ data, which is their most valuable asset”, said Bill Richter, CEO of Qumulo. “We are convinced our customers can rely on the fact that Qumulo places a high focus on data protection, safety, and security.”
