With the publication of The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2, a high set of security standards was established for cryptographic modules used by the federal government in the storage, transfer, and sharing of sensitive information.
FIPS imposes specific requirements developed by NIST for encryption and other critical cybersecurity measures. To be FIPS-compliant, your file-sharing solution has to use cryptographic algorithms and hash functions that meet the standards specified in FIPS publication 140-2.
At Sharetru, we exclusively use components that meet FIPS 140-2 standards for in-transit and at-rest encryption.
Meeting the high FIPS standards provides tremendous benefits. Besides keeping your data secure, it’s also important for meeting various other compliance frameworks. For example, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) require that in-transit encryption modules be FIPS 140-2 validated.
FIPS 140-2 also applies to:
Our platform makes FIPS-compliant file transfers quick and easy, so you can share private and sensitive data with confidence.
FIPS 140-2 is a prerequisite for CMMC and FedRAMP compliance. The use of TLS 1.2 or other encryption modules that are FIPS 140-2 validated is an implied standard of HIPAA. Many industries must follow the requirements of FIPS 140-2 to be compliant with U.S. law.
Organizations that are legally obligated to meet FIPS requirements for file storage and transfer include:
Sharetru makes secure file sharing quick and easy for organizations in a wide variety of industries so they can be confident in their FIPS 140-2 compliance.
The need for FIPS 140-2 compliance extends into a range of industries and other compliance frameworks such as those listed below.
You don’t have to take our word for it. We’ve been the leaders of secure online file sharing from the very beginning, and we’d love to show you how we do it. Schedule your demo today.
