The EFT High Security module (HSM) includes a FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptographic library to provide secure transfer of information and to ensure that EFT operates using only FIPS-approved algorithms for encryption of transferred data when using FTP over SSL (FTPS), HTTP over SSL (HTTPS), and SFTP (SSH2).
Why is FIPS Compliance Important?
Government agencies often require compliance with FIPS 140-2 for the commercial systems they purchase to protect the integrity of data traffic traveling across their networks. Similarly, companies in the public sector such as healthcare, financial, and manufacturing are under pressure to ensure that customer and patient information is secure when traveling across networks. To meet that need, many companies are implementing the same FIPS standard mandated by the U.S. government.
