SkyRecon Receives FIPS 140-2 Validation for Its Encryption

SkyRecon's Flexible Data Encryption Meets Stringent FIPS 140-2 Standard

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 30, 2009) - SkyRecon® Systems (, the premier provider of integrated, proactive endpoint protection platforms, today announced it has received FIPS 140-2 validation for its Flexible Data Encryption™ module -- a core component of the company's endpoint security suite StormShield®.

FIPS 140-2 is a rigorous federal security accreditation jointly defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) that establishes the standard used to accredit encryption algorithms and modules intended for use in protecting sensitive information. SkyRecon's Flexible Data Encryption has now met this standard.

Leveraging AES encryption standard, the SkyRecon Flexible Data Encryption module is delivered through a streamlined SDK that provides an extremely lightweight, efficient implementation of on-the-fly file-based encryption, removable device encryption, and pre-boot full-disk encryption services -- all in a single, lightweight endpoint client module.

SkyRecon's Flexible Data Encryption will provide the immediate benefit of quality assurance, security confidence, and data confidentiality to its existing customers under maintenance that receive the v5.5 scheduled for release in the first quarter 2010.
