Game Changers: Specialized Solutions
SafeLogic is a highly focused team of experts dedicated to FIPS 140 validated encryption, they maintain an aggressive validation maintenance roadmap to support the latest platforms and offer services specifically catering to the needs of the client. Being unconventional and having a visionary hiring policy ensures their relevance, “SafeLogic has always been a distributed workforce, meaning that we’ve always hired the right people, not just the top candidate who happened to live within commuting distance. This put us in a position to continue operations during the pandemic with zero disruption to our work.”
CryptoComply, developed by SafeLogic is a standards-based cryptographic library for servers, appliances, and mobile devices that provides “Drop-in Compliance” which enables full compliance with FIPS allowing their client’s product to be updated and revised with the speed of innovation, the tightness of its validation boundaries ensures compliance. RapidCert, another amazing solution that accelerates the timeline for providing validated solutions results in huge time savings. The RapidCert program in tandem with CryptoComply, allows the user to receive a formal FIPS 140 validation certificate in their name quickly and with no interaction with a testing laboratory, which accelerates the timeline and lowers costs compared to the traditional process.
The key to remaining competitive in the public sector is to keep the product validations current with the latest releases on the latest platforms. As Walter points out, “FIPS 140 has become well known as a building block certification, leveraged as a prerequisite by many technologies approval programs for government and regulated industries like finance, healthcare, legal, and utilities. This was as intended by NIST. As a clearinghouse for the public and private sectors, NIST publications are highly influential. For example, SP 800-53, Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations, underpins the FedRAMP authorization, while SP 800-171, Assessing Security Requirements for Controlled Unclassified Information, is the basis for the CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) program. FISMA, DoDIN APL, Common Criteria, HIPAA, and HITECH healthcare regulations all follow suit, specifying the dependency on FIPS 140 validation for any cryptography deployed within the solution.”
SafeLogic’s product line generates cutting-edge technology which enables them to meet the requirements in government, military, healthcare, and other regulated industries. They work with early-stage start-ups and also with industry giants like Raytheon, Oracle, Juniper Networks, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Symantec. They have clients who are providing specialized solutions to hospitals and law enforcement, for satellite imaging and smart printers, for identity access and single sign-on, in data centers, and on mobile devices.
As Walter emphasizes, “Encryption is, or should be, deployed everywhere that information security and privacy matter.”
In a short period, SafeLogic technological acumen has bought in many accolades, including several InfoSec Awards from Cyber Defense Magazine, ASTORS Homeland Security trophies from American Security Today, Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, CyberSecured Awards, the Govies, and others.
The CTO of Nukona, acquired by Symantec, Jeff Enderwick’s testimonial sums it all up, “The actual integration was amazingly fast and easy. With the help of the SafeLogic support team, it only took one of my developers two weeks to replace the old crypto library, drop in the CryptoComply package and complete initial testing. As far as I am concerned, we shrank a 2-year project down to 2 weeks. In fact, it was just like ‘push the button’ and it was done!”
