Ixia Network Visibility Solutions Achieve Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 Accreditation

CALABASAS, CA - August 8, 2017 - Ixia, a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security, today announced it has achieved the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 accreditation for its industry leading Vision ONE™ and Vision™ 7300 network packet brokers (NPB) solutions. More on FIPS 140-2 validation.

This accreditation signifies that these Ixia products meet the stringent security requirements of all U.S. government agencies, and serves as another meaningful demonstration of the company´s leadership in the network visibility market.

The FIPS PUB 140-2 covers security requirements in 11 areas related to the design and implementation of a cryptographic module. This standard specifies the security requirements that will be satisfied by a cryptographic module utilized within a security system protecting sensitive but unclassified information.

"Ixia works diligently to ensure that our products meet the stringent security requirements of federal agencies, while meeting the dynamic needs of our customers and partners, "stated Recep Ozdag, Vice President of Product Management at Ixia. "This accreditation serves as a meaningful demonstration of Ixia´s ongoing commitment to the network visibility and federal markets."

The following Ixia Network Visibility Solutions have received FIPS accreditation:
  • Ixia´s Vision ONE network packet broker enables organizations to maintain security as well as identify and resolve performance problems across physical and virtual infrastructures from a single platform. Whether fighting against threats hidden in encrypted traffic, or feeding the right data to the right forensic solution, Vision ONE boosts network protection without negatively impacting performance.
  • Ixia´s Vision 7300, enables centralized control of a network monitoring system in a single, simple, rack-mountable unit. It combines disparate solutions into a smaller data center footprint, saving power and rack space while improving return on investment. This unprecedented visibility protects tool investments and scales with the network as monitoring needs grow, new applications debut, and security threats emerge.
