Array Networks introduces FIPS-compliant gateway
For agencies that need secure access for applications and cloud connectivity, Array Networks announced its FIPS 140-2 Level 2 compliant AG1500 Secure Access Gateway (SSL VPN).
Array Networks, an application delivery networking company, said its AG1500FIPS SSL VPN meets the requirements of government agencies and other organizations that need higher levels of security to comply with regulations.
The AG1500FIPS provides enhanced security for SSL traffic by storing, processing and encrypting both keys and data in a hardware-secured module, the company said. In addition to enhanced security, Array’s SSL VPN provides scalability for data center and cloud environments where large numbers of users require simultaneous access,. The gateway can support up to 72,000 concurrent users and up to 9,000 new 2048-bit SSL transactions each second.
Array’s AG1500FIPS also delivers advanced end-point security, access methods, authentication, authorization, auditing, server-side security, mobile device management, administration capabilities and platform support for PCs, iOS and Android, the company said.
“FIPS 140-2 Level 2 compliance is a critical step in making Array’s leading SSL VPN and load balancing solutions available to the broadest cross section of customers,” said Paul Andersen, director of marketing for Array Networks. “We’ve had requests for FIPS not only from end user customers such as government, financial services and healthcare organizations, but also from cloud providers standing up dedicated data centers to serve federal business opportunities.”
The Array AG1500FIPS is available immediately, starting at $100,000 including dual power supplies and 10 gigabit fiber interfaces.
