Manage infrastructure securely
Government agency networks are geographically dispersed. To ensure that systems are able to be accessed despite their location, agencies need a secure solution. Using Failover to Cellular™ (F2C) and Smart Out-of-Band (Smart OOB™), redundant backup access is enabled to preserve the bandwidth needed for the primary network.
Smart Out-of-Band allows government agencies to manage systems, devices, and equipment remotely. If an outage occurs, they are able to identify and resolve the issue quickly.
Failover to Cellular provides connectivity for remote LANs using 4G LTE when the primary link is unavailable. If during a deployment an outage occurs, always-on access is ensured.
Compliance & Government Contracts
Ensure FIPS 140 compliance
Opengear solutions ensure that Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) is adhered to. Published by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and specific to cryptographic modules, FIPS 140-2 are security requirements that cover 11 areas related to design.
All Opengear devices have been tested and validated by US and Canadian governments ensuring that they meet 140-2 requirements.
Having partnered with OSSI and the OpenSSL project, Opengear sponsors an extension of the OpenSSL FIPS Object Module v1.2 validation, ensuring that it meets the FIPS 140-2 standards for ARM processors. Embedded FIPS 140-2 OpenSSL cryptographic modules located in all Opengear devices have been validated to meet the FIPS 140-2 standards and have received certificate #1051. When using SSH, HTTPS, or SDT Connector to connect any service on the console servers when in FIPS mode, government agencies will be using the embedded FIPS compliant module. All Opengear products also meet the requirements of the Trade Agreements Act.
Opengear products can be purchased on US Federal government acquisition contracts through Synnex or Ingram.
