FIPS-Certified mobile VPN for police

Columbitech : 02 July, 2009  (New Product)
Police and emergency services workers now have access to a secure and reliable mobile VPN which meets FIPS 140-2 standards
Columbitech has announced the only FIPS 140-2 certified Mobile VPN with strong security and session persistence for public safety agencies and other emergency service departments. Using the Columbitech Mobile VPN, public safety agencies - including EMS, police and fire departments - can now benefit from enhanced productivity while in the field without sacrificing security.

Columbitech's software-based mobility solution is the only offering to successfully complete testing from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to receive the military-grade FIPS 140-2 certification. Based on the Transport Layer Protocol (TLS) standard, the Mobile VPN offers multifactor authentication and strong encryption to ensure transmitted data remains secure. This is critical when accessing confidential records and personal information during a mission-critical situation.

For public safety professionals working in the field, the solution's session persistence enables persistent wireless access to all office applications, including emergency dispatch, fire inspection data, police reports, vehicle and identity checkups and other records management systems. Even in areas with poor cellular coverage, the Mobile VPN resumes the session as the device roams between networks - allowing users to seamlessly continue working without disconnecting or repeating the log-in process. By ensuring uninterrupted remote access, workers can complete more tasks in the field - eliminating the need for additional paperwork back in the office.

"We've seen many departments struggle with mobility capabilities for their field workers - often feeling forced into inefficient solutions to meet the strict security standards set for government and public safety agencies," said Asa Holmstrom, president of Columbitech. "With a combination of strong security like FIPS 140-2 certification and mobility features, our Mobile VPN is ideal for any public safety agency looking to increase productivity - within a secure remote environment."

As a software and application transparent solution, the Columbitech solution is cost-efficient with no additional hardware required. Deployed with existing servers and devices, the network-agnostic Mobile VPN also offers low maintenance costs and allows agencies to only pay for the number of users required. From a small sheriff's office to thousands of officers in a police department, Columbitech offers a highly scalable solution which can be customized for any agency. The Columbitech solution is already trusted by police departments in the US, including Saukville and Allen County, in addition to agencies in Europe, New Zealand and branches of the US military.
