CARLSBAD, Calif., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT) has received Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2 Certification for the ViaSat Embeddable Security System 1200 (ES-1200) from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (CMVP Cert #2074 The ES-1200 is approved for export under license exception ENC in accordance with the U.S. Export Administration Regulations.
ViaSat creates new ways to access advanced network applications with satellite and other wireless networking systems that enable fast, secure, and efficient communications to any location. The company provides networking products and services for enterprise and consumer IP applications and is a key supplier of military communications and encryption technologies to the U.S. government.

The ES-1200 provides communications security for a wide range of user needs where robust security is needed, including military, government, and commercial applications, and is used to secure command and control (C2) links for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and a variety of wired and wireless applications. The ES-1200 is optimized for embedment in host systems that have low size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements.

"The ES-1200 makes securing voice and data communications easy by providing a high-performance, fully programmable product that provides all the critical features needed for a secure system on a single, low SWaP module," said Richard Quintana, senior director and CTO of Information Assurance for ViaSat Secure Network Systems (SNS). "Our approach to cryptographic engine design is to use re-programmable, commercial off the shelf (COTS) components that have the flexibility to efficiently meet evolving government and commercial standards, allowing products like the ES-1200 to avoid the potential for near term product obsolescence as well as the extra costs associated with the development of custom components. The use of all COTS components to provide cryptography is the cornerstone of ViaSat secure technology."
