The confidential information stored on your file transfer server is at risk! Over

you with the tools you need to establish password policies that prevent weak passwords
and ensure your network’s security.

FIPS 140-2 Validated Cryptography
The U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) has requirements concerning

vendors, contractors, and suppliers doing business with those entities.
