Protect Enterprise Data and Comply with Government Regulations

Federal Information Processing Standardization (FIPS) 140 requires all federal government agencies, and organizations that exchange sensitive information with those agencies, use cryptographic-based security systems to protect sensitive information. Federal agencies are required by OMB M-06-16 to only use FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption and extended enterprises are continuously scrutinized for compliance. WinZip® does not meet FIPS 140-2 requirements and leaves organizations at risk of failing an audit.

PKWARE helps organizations encrypt sensitive data in compliance with FIPS 140-2 requirements.

  • Protect enterprise data: Secure files, file names and email message body across the extended enterprise regardless of security format or computing platform
  • Enforce the use of security: Centrally manage security policy in the enterprise while ensuring access to all encrypted data
  • Reduce complexity: Enable seamless user workflow and ensure access to encrypted data on mobile devices
  • Reduce sensitive data exposure: Secure files using PKI encryption and validate digital signatures while preventing the recovery of sensitive temporary files that have been deleted
  • Standardize the use of security: Enforce the use of encryption within the organization
  • Improve service delivery: Deploy security technology in hours versus days

SecureZIP file level encryption makes data impregnable to anyone but authorized staff.

Success Story: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) needed to protect sensitive agency data exchanged with partners in order to comply with the regulatory requirements of OMB M-06-16 and FIPS 140-2. Data needed to be sent - and readily used - across a wide variety of technology platforms, applications and data formats. Existing methods of electronic transfer, tapes and CD storage presented immense administrative and logistical burdens as well as increased compliance and security risks. With PKWARE, CMS is now safeguarding medical data and patient records at the file level in accordance with FIPS standards, making it impregnable to anyone but authorized staff - whether the data is at rest or in transit among the numerous CMS partner organizations.
