FIPS 140-2 recommended by UK Government Department
The UK Treasury Solicitor's Department has published a new document that outlines security requirements for Counsel and Barristers. The TSol guidance document (PDF) recommends using only FIPS 140-2 validated encryption products, and provides tips for choosing an encryption vendor.
FIPS 140-2 validation is a comprehensive process that requires testing by an accredited security lab. Kanguru has now completed FIPS 140-2 certification with three generations of Secure USB Flash Drives: Kanguru MicroDrive AES, Kanguru Bio AES, and the new Kanguru Defender Elite, which is compatible with Mac and Windows, as well as Ubuntu and Red Hat Linux.
