• The Sonus SBC 5110, SBC 5210 and SBC 7000 receive FIPS 140-2 validation.
• FIPS 140-2 is mandated for U.S. government and military use and is the standard for regulated industries, such as finance, healthcare, and utilities.
• The Sonus SBC 5000 Series and SBC 7000 provide security features to lower the network threat level of real-time communications.
Sonus Networks, Inc., a global leader in secure and intelligent Cloud communications announced today that the Sonus SBC 5110, SBC 5210 and SBC 7000 are now Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 validated. With this validation, these Sonus products enable government and other regulated customers to utilize its SBCs to secure mission-critical communications.
FIPS 140-2 certification is administered by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program. This program is operated jointly by the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Communications Security Establishment of Canada to specify the level of security needed to protect sensitive government data in computer and telecommunication systems.
Sonus’ FIPS-validated SBCs are designed to help enterprises, service providers and government agencies securely maintain the privacy and integrity of the real-time communications traffic passing through their networks. In addition to security, Sonus’ SBCs and policy products also provide contextual network intelligence, ensure high-quality voice and video communications and reduce costs through a more efficient IP-based network architecture.
“The need for security devices in industries with sensitive data and communications is paramount,” said William Hartwell, Sonus vice president, Federal Government Sales. “Sonus’ FIPS 140-2 validation not only acts as a proof-point for our technology, but also makes it easier for government, financial, utility and healthcare customers to maintain the stringent security standards demanded in their industries.”
