AccessData Receives FIPS 140-2 Validation for AD Enterprise, AD eDiscovery and Its New "CIRT" Product

AccessData today announced that its "Secure Network Communications Module" has received FIPS 140-2 validation (Certificate 1374). This module comes embedded in both AccessData's market-leading enterprise investigations solution and electronic discovery solution, AD Enterprise and AD eDiscovery. It will also be delivered with AccessData's new "Cyber Intelligence and Response Technology" (CIRT) solution, due to release by 2011. "FIPS certification is considered the standard for certification of cryptographic modules internationally and validates that data transferred over any public or private network when employing our certified cryptographic module will be encrypted and protected," explained Brian Karney, President and COO of AccessData.

The AccessData Secure Network Communications module provides to any AccessData application that incorporates it, electronic encryption designed to prevent unauthorized access to data transferred across a physical or wireless TCP/IP network. The following enterprise-class products utilize the AccessData Secure Network Communications Module.

  • AD Enterprise is used to investigate multiple computers across an enterprise, allowing the user to preview, analyze and acquire data from 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows, Solaris, Linux and Macintosh machines. It is used to investigate and remediate security breaches, to perform internal investigations to address issues, such as IP theft and fraud, and to facilitate corporate and governmental compliance.
  • AD eDiscovery addresses everything from litigation hold to production for legal review in an automated, defensible manner. Users can manage legal matters, custodians, collections and legal holds within an easy-to-use dashboard. The solution automatically collects both structured and unstructured data and processes massive amounts of data quickly, leveraging highly scalable distributed processing. The web-interface enables multi-party collaboration for early case assessment and deep analysis. Users can then generate load files for common third-party review tools. Adopted by leading Fortune 500 companies, AccessData eDiscovery software delivers dramatic time and cost savings with every use.
  • AccessData's new CIRT product fully integrates deep incident response, host and network forensics to provide a single solution, with which federal agencies and corporations can perform Cyber Security operations. Such operations include proactive and reactive identification of threats across the network from multiple vantage points, as well as data auditing to address issues, such as classified spillage and PCI compliance. Using CIRT, organizations will be able to manage end point and network forensic analysis within a single interface to gain actionable intelligence that will allow them to more effectively defend their information assets.

These solutions work by deploying agents across a computer network, which communicate with a Work Manager Server, Enterprise Examiner workstation, or Proxy Server as directed by the applications administrator. The FIPS 140-2 certification validates that all communication with an agent is authorized and provides protected data transport within an enterprise or through the internet when using AccessData’s Proxy Server technology.
