Driebergen, 16-10-2008.

Vandaag heeft Certicom Corp (r)  aangekondigd dat Sybase, Inc (r), marktleidende partij op het gebied van enterprise infrastructuur en mobiele software, de Certicom’s Security Builder (r) range van beveiligingsoplossingen zal gebruiken. Hiermee wordt de FIPS 140-2 certificatie gewaarborgd, de certificatie die de Sybase produkten tot de meest betrouwbare in de markt maakt. De oplossingen van Certicom voor beveiliging kan door Sybase gebruikt worden in een breed scala aan enterprise en mobility produkten, inclusief database applicaties, applicatie servers en synchronisatie technologie.

Sybase solutions stellen gebruikers in staat om informatie beveiligd te benaderen, anytime, anywhere. Sybase wordt erkend door klanten in financial services, telecommunicatie, healthcare en overheid om als betrouwbare technologie leverancier hun gevoelige informatie te managen en te mobiliseren.

De FIPS 140-2 is de beveiligingseis voor encryptie modules, gedefinieerd door het National Institute of Standards for Technology (NIST). De standaard is vereist voor verkoop van produkten waarbij cryptografie toegepast wordt ten behoeve van gebruik door de Federale Overheid in de VS. Bedrijven die niet over FIPS 140-2 validatie beschikken of niet kunnen bewijzen dat een dergelijk validatieproces bezig is, hebben geen toegang tot de Amerikaanse overheidsmarkt. De FIPS 140-2 certificatie is hiermee een zeer belangrijke kwaliteitswaarborg voor beveiligingsprodukten.

Karna Gupta, CEO van Certicom stelt: “We zijn verheugd dat Sybase het partnership met Certicom voor database beveiliging continueert. Het managen en mobiliseren van informatie is top prioriteit voor Sybase klanten. Certicom security solutions helpt de klanten van Sybase om zich te overtuigen dat hun informatie altijd veilig is, op elk apparaat”
