Serv-U FTP Earns Certificate of Networthiness from U.S. Army
RhinoSoft's Serv-U FTP server was recently issued a Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the United States Army. As noted in this news release on SF Gate, since Serv-U is one of the few FTP servers to completely support the IPv6 protocol mandated by the Department of Defense it stands a good chance of becoming the preferred FTP server of the United States military.
"The CoN process involves an extensive assessment to ensure a product meets or exceeds U.S. Army requirements for reliability, security, architecture, and integration with the Army's existing IT infrastructure.
"RhinoSoft already uses FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography in Serv-U and plans to add more military-grade capabilities in its file transfer products, including full IPv6 support in its FTP Voyager client early next year. Existing company procedures also make RhinoSoft an attractive vendor for military applications.
"Federal agencies have also taken notice of RhinoSoft's investment in secure communications. In addition to sales to the U.S Air Force and U.S. Army, RhinoSoft received secure file transfer orders from the Department of Homeland Security, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the Department of Defense, the Social Security Administration and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 2011."
