Nefsis Debuts New FIPS Edition of its
Cloud-Based Video Conferencing Technology
FIPS compliant product designed
for security conscious government installations
SAN DIEGO — April 27, 2011 — Online services innovator Nefsis®
announced today the Nefsis FIPS Edition, designed for government
agencies requiring FIPS 140-2 compliant web, VoIP and multipoint
video conferencing services. Nefsis provides
video conferencing to desktops and conference rooms, with a complete
suite of live
web collaboration tools.
The new FIPS Edition provides government IT staff a viable option
for providing desktop reach, more collaboration tools, and better
support for remote locations that connect to headquarters offices
securely via the Internet.
Nefsis FIPS Edition provides on-premise, customer-controlled
access point and virtual conference servers that provide the ability
for an organization to build a private cloud. The new components
support FIPS 140-2 required security certificate, authentication,
strong cipher, and end-to-end encrypted TLS connections allowing
federal employees spread out geographically to participate in video
conferences regardless of whether they connect via private network
or public route.
The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) govern
non-military U.S. government agencies and their contractors. FIPS
140 covers communications and cryptographic requirements and calls
for the use of specific, secure protocols, methods, and
configuration settings. These provide confidence through
standardization and a higher level of security than non-compliant
products and services.
part of our commitment to provide secure collaboration tools
that allow Federal agencies to meet their mission objectives,
we are pleased to introduce Nefsis FIPS Edition, adding secure
desktop reach and more advanced collaboration tools to the
government video conferencing market,” said Steve Peltier,
Nefsis Chief Executive Officer.
