San Jose, Calif., January 26, 2021 - Phison Electronics Corp, a global leader in NAND Flash controller integrated circuits and storage solutions, announced today that it is now shipping secure SSD solutions with FIPS 140-2 Certification.
In today's world, consumer and corporate data are vulnerable to attacks by hackers, viruses and even rogue governments staging cyber-attacks. Phison has recognized these security issues and addressed these threats by implementing FIPS 140-2 security technology in SATA and PCIe product lines.
Phison provided technical support for their customizable SSD solutions during the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) process. Companies have to pass it in order to list themselves as the validated cryptographic module vendor. Because Phison has FIPS 140-2 certified solutions, our customers can now choose to leverage existing validated Phison modules so they can reduce the time and effort spent on FIPS validation of their own.
"Many governments, and companies that do business with government agencies, have adopted the FIPS 140-2 standard as a minimum requirement for data cryptography," said Don Jeanette, Vice President of SSD Market Research at Trendfocus. "Commercial, compliance-driven, security-conscious companies worldwide in healthcare, finance, legal, education, and infrastructure also increasingly require FIPS 140-2 validation. Businesses and governments demand that they encrypt their data to help protect against loss or theft. Phison's FIPS 140-2 certification, combined with the capability for customization, provides users with industry-best security that a customer can tailor to their business needs."
A FIPS 140-2 certification guarantees that a specific technology has passed rigorous testing by an accredited lab and that the product can secure sensitive information. This certification shows that Phison can design sophisticated flash storage solutions that meet high-level cryptography standards, starting from ASIC to turnkey products.
"Protecting our customer's data is one of the most important engineering design principles at Phison. We are pleased to offer FIPS 140-2 security in Phison SSD solutions to mitigate against modern threats," said K.S. Pua, CEO of Phison.
