Avigilon solutions gain federal approval

Chicago, Il (USA)

FIPS requires rigorous testing to ensure products meet stringent standards of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

Key video security and access control solutions from Motorola Solutions' Avigilon line of video security and analytics products have met the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) to secure sensitive information. These solutions allow federal agencies to monitor potential threats in real-time to help prevent intrusions, security breaches, internal or external theft of physical or confidential assets and attempted coordinated attacks from domestic or foreign threats.

FIPS requires rigorous testing to ensure products meet stringent standards of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. Motorola Solutions offers FIPS-compliant Avigilon H5A cameras, Avigilon network video recorders and Avigilon Control Center (ACC) video management software, which meet the 140-2 standard for data encryption while at rest and in motion. The solutions include a Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) baseline and Risk Management Framework (RMF) hardening guide to support required compliance testing.

In addition, the Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM) meets the FIPS 201-2 standard, which means it is approved for use in personal identity verification (PIV) credentialing and physical access control systems (PACS) and is listed on the U.S. General Services Administration Approved Product List (GSA APL). FIPS 201-2 requires all federal government employees and contractors to use approved card standards for government-issued identification that ensures authenticity of the card and credentials, while also facilitating access and mobility across the different agencies and departments.

“Government agencies bear the tremendous responsibility of protecting and defending their employees, civilians and the nation’s critical infrastructure,” said Mark McNulty, corporate vice president and general manager, U.S. Federal Government Markets, Motorola Solutions. “Leveraging intelligent real-time and forensic video solutions is vitally important, and the FIPS-compliance of our Avigilon fixed video security portfolio and access control products gives federal agency personnel, as well as regulated industries such as finance, health care, legal and utilities, the peace of mind of knowing the solution has been tested and formally validated against NIST standards.”
