Globo receives United States NIST Data Security Certification
Globo meets highest industry standard for application security, supporting its growth into highly regulated markets such as government, finance and healthcare.
Globo Plc (LSE-AIM: GBO), the international provider of enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions and software as a service (SaaS), is pleased to announce that the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) has validated Globo‘s cryptographic modules as per Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Security Standard for Cryptographic Modules. FIPS 140-2 validated encryption has been added to the entire Globo solution suite, which consists of GO!Enterprise EMM and GO!AppZone MADP (Mobile Application Development Platform) offerings, which means that Globo‘s offering now satisfies the highest level of security required in the United States.
This certification gives Globo a competitive advantage in addressing commercial opportunities in highly–regulated markets such as government, finance and healthcare, which demand the highest level of validated encryption. Within Globo’s EMM and MADP ecosystem thiscertificationapplies equally to functions such as email, messaging, file access or browsing, and connection to back-end systems or databases. FIPS validation represents an important milestone for Globo’sstrategy for expansion on the United States.
Further, Globo is the only vendor cited in Gartner‘s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Managementthat has received US NIST FIPS 140-2 validation for each major operating environment; iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows Server.

Costis Papadimitrakopoulos, CEO of Globo, said:
“Globo has made a significant investment in providing customers with validated FIPS 140-2 encryption for both our enterprise mobility management and mobile app development solutions. This level of encryption allows companies to meet IT compliance requirements for the Payment Card Industry (PCI), Sarbanes-Oxley Act reporting, HIPAA compliance (Health Insurance Portability and AccountingAct), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) compliance and other highly–regulated markets.“
