August 23, 2001 Avaya (www.avaya.com) announced that its network security products were certified by the U.S. government and independent laboratories. Both the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and TrueSecure ICSA Labs have certified Avaya's family of VPN Service Unit (VSU) security gateways. Avaya's VPNs give enterprises a secure way to effectively deploy their solutions, such as IP telephony, customer relationship management, and unified communications. VPNs enable organizations to securely connect their mobile workers and branch offices over the Internet by enforcing authentication, and by using encryption to assure that data is not compromised while being sent over public networks.

The U.S. government requires that its agencies install only secure VPNs, that meet NIST's Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS), specifically, the FIPS 140-1. FIPS 140-1 certification assures customers that an objective, accredited FIPS 140-1 lab has validated that a VPN's cryptography meets requirements in 11 different areas of security.
