Versa Achieves FIPS 140-2 Security Certification

Versa Networks, a leader of single-vendor secure access service edge (SASE), has achieved Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 certification for its trademarked Versa Operating System (VOS), which is the foundation for Versa SASE and Versa Secure SD-WAN and includes complete end-to-end security with FIPS validated cryptography for the entire solution. This is an important milestone that demonstrates Versa’s commitment to the public sector, including the state and federal government vertical for which this certification is critical.

“Federal CIOs and CISOs are driving strategic zero trust and SASE initiatives to meet President Biden’s Executive Order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity,” said Ed Elmore, federal VP of sales at Versa Networks. “To deliver the most secure capabilities to our federal customers, Versa is committed to FIPS 140-2 certifications by NIST [National Institute of Standards and Technology] as a foundational element of Versa products supporting our government customers’ missions. Versa delivers the most comprehensive, fully integrated SASE and Zero Trust solution to the government.”

The evaluation was conducted by Advanced Data Security, an independent cryptographic module testing laboratory accredited by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). The CMVP is a joint effort between the NIST under the Department of Commerce and the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, a branch of the Communications Security Establishment.
