Deploy high assurance solutions with confidence

Products from Thales e-Security are proven to deliver high assurance in a wide range of settings—including some of the world’s most stringent security environments. But you do not need to take our word for the fact that these products deliver the protection you need.

Thales is committed to meeting the highest security standards. We routinely design our products to meet FIPS and Common Criteria standards—and subject them to rigorous independent laboratory evaluation. Year after year, our products have stood up to the test and achieved these and other critical independent certifications. For example, tamper-resistant devices from Thales are typically certified to the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 standard, which has become the most widely accepted benchmark for hardware security in enterprise and government environments.

With an independently certified product from Thales, you can be sure that your solution achieves a specific, well-defined security baseline. With this knowledge, you are much better equipped to match your data protection solutions to the specific requirements of your data, your environment, and your regulatory obligations.

If you are choosing among multiple products that have achieved certification, your evaluation will move beyond high assurance to other important considerations including ease of deployment, operational efficiency, performance, flexibility, and your ability to scale business processes and IT processes as needed. As you explore these requirements, you will find that Thales products stand out from the crowd, delivering an ideal blend of high assurance and operational efficiency that maximizes your confidence—and your return on investment in data protection solutions.
