Security Certifications


FIPS 140-2

FIPS 140-2 validation demonstrates confidence from the US government that a product is capable of securing its own sensitive communications. Allied Telesis FIPS-validated network switching products safeguard your sensitive electronic data.

All Allied Telesis firewall, router, and switching products run the same underlying AlliedWare Plus operating system, so even those that haven’t been certified yet benefit from the extensive quality control, rigorous development processes, and comprehensive testing that are examined during FIPS 140-2 validation.

The official list of Allied Telesis validated modules can be viewed on the NIST website.
