AirTight Networks, a provider of wireless security solutions, today announced that SpectraGuard Enterprise, the company’s flagship wireless intrusion prevention solution, has achieved FIPS 140-2 validation, making it certified for deployment within U.S. federal government agencies, including the Department of Defense.

AirTight NetworksThe SpectraGuard wireless intrusion prevention solution (WIPS) family provides enterprise security and compliance teams with strong capabilities to detect, classify, block and locate Wi-Fi security threats, while helping network operations staff to monitor and troubleshoot WLAN performance issues.

FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is required under the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA). Under the Information Technology Management Reform Act, the Secretary of Commerce approves standards and guidelines that are developed by the NIST for Federal computer systems for government-wide use.

“Although the standards were developed to assure that government agencies and those who provide technology to those agencies met the highest standards for security, it is becoming increasingly common for many non-government enterprises to ensure that they deploy robust products in their IT infrastructure,” said Dr. Hemant Chaskar, Vice President of Technology at AirTight.

Mountain View, California-based AirTight Networks provides wireless security and compliance solutions to help protect enterprises from Wi-Fi security threats, while allowing them to better manage their WLAN environment and comply with wireless compliance standards (i.e. PCI). The company also offers a cloud-based service that delivers multi-tenant WIPS, PCI wireless compliance and controller-less WLAN access solutions with no capital expenditure required.
