First print management solution to receive validation of FIPS 140-2 compliance by independent NIST-approved testing laboratory
ST. GEORGE, UTAH, January 8, 2020—PrinterLogic, the world leader in Serverless Printing Infrastructure (SPI), announced today it has received its Common Criteria Certificate for validation of compliance with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 for its PrinterLogic Web Stack solution.
Common Criteria certification is awarded to vendors that correctly implement the standards and security controls set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Part of those security controls is strict adherence to the FIPS 140-2 standard, which defines encryption requirements for protecting sensitive U.S. government data.
“At our core, we are a security-conscious company. This certification validates our security compliance and shows that we follow the most rigorous standards set by the U.S. government for securing data,” said Corey Ercanbrack, Chief Technical Officer for PrinterLogic.
The validation process was performed by Leidos Common Criteria Testing Laboratory, an independent testing organization widely recognized by government evaluators. To achieve certification, Leidos subjected the software’s cryptographic modules to functional and algorithmic testing.
PrinterLogic is the first print management software company to meet these requirements as validated by a NIST-accredited laboratory, and is now included on the National Information Assurance Partnership’s (NIAP) approved products list, used by technology buyers in 31 countries.
Over 40 federal entities use PrinterLogic to eliminate print servers and centrally manage direct IP printing. In 2019, PrinterLogic announced support for serverless CAC/PIV secure-release printing, which lets any network printer use multi-factor authentication to ensure print jobs are delivered to the right person.
The FIPS validation, in combination with PrinterLogic’s inherently secure direct IP printing platform, makes it a trusted solution for other data-sensitive sectors as well, including healthcare and financial services.
PrinterLogic helps IT professionals eliminate all print servers and deliver a highly available Serverless Printing Infrastructure. With PrinterLogic’s centrally managed direct IP printing platform, customers empower their end users with mobile printing, secure-release printing, and many advanced features that legacy print management applications can’t provide. The company has been included multiple times on the Inc. 500 and Deloitte Fast 500 lists of fastest growing companies in North America. For more information, visit www.printerlogic.com.
