About Futurex

The cybersecurity challenges for government agencies and defense contractors

Government institutions and defense contractors need high-assurance cybersecurity infrastructure that meets all compliance requirements and is manageable from a central platform. A comprehensive solution must factor in scalability, fast deployment, full redundancy, alerting and reporting, and total physical and logical security. Interagency data sharing means that it’s best to avoid data silos.

  • Achieve compliance requirements with fully validated technology
  • Employ extensive functionality, with each module used to its fullest extent
  • Manage distributed cryptographic infrastructures through a centralized platform
  • Protect sensitive information and mitigate government cybersecurity threats with high-assurance HSMs

Futurex cybersecurity solutions for government agencies and defense contractors

The Futurex solution suite helps federal agencies and DoD contractors manage their cybersecurity infrastructure with the highest possible precision and flexibility. Futurex offers easy-to-integrate, fully validated HSMs and key management servers both on-premises and in the cloud. Futurex government cybersecurity solutions provide unmatched security both now and in the future.

  • A common HSM code base simplifies scalability and integration
  • You can deploy the full range of cryptographic functions in flexible configurations
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated HSMs support all major encryption algorithms
  • A centralized, intuitive management platform prevents data silos and allows secure interagency data sharing

High assurance protection

Any federal agency or defense contractor has a unique responsibility to secure a wide variety of data, including classified defense secrets, social security information, healthcare data, and more. Futurex supplies the cryptographic resources to help organizations protect that data in both storage and transit.

To ensure public trust and protect sensitive data, governmental agencies, contractors, and subcontractors need advanced, comprehensive data encryption solutions that they can scale and deploy rapidly. Futurex security technology provides defense contractors with tailored, innovative, and secure solutions to address high-level concerns across land, sea, air, and space. With built-in redundancy and robust physical and logical security, the Futurex solution suite offers defense contractors the assurance they need that their data is fully protected across endpoints.

Avoid data silos

Information stove-piping is a thing of the past with Futurex’s products. Our centralized data management systems provide secure access to data across multiple institutions, regardless of the geographical location.

Management tasks often represent a substantial challenge for administrators of distributed cryptographic infrastructures with multiple cybersecurity servers. The Futurex Guardian Series 3 is a centralized management platform enabling intelligent configuration, monitoring, alerting, resource allocation, and load balancing of client Futurex devices. This business-first solution enables the centralized distribution of software updates and replication of keys, certificates, and cryptographic objects across all devices and systems.

Regulatory compliance

Federal regulations are a critical part of current government cybersecurity systems. The need for standards on transmitting and storing sensitive information has led to many regulations and laws. These support best practices for protecting critical information from cybersecurity threats.

At Futurex, we view government cybersecurity compliance support as more than just a checkbox. Our engineering and business philosophy is that current cybersecurity regulations serve as the initiative to advance our technology further, going beyond today’s standards to anticipate emerging trends and search out expected cybersecurity threats.

DFARS clause

The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) is a set of cybersecurity compliance requirements that apply to third-party government defense contractors, subcontractors, and other companies who work with the Department of Defense (DoD). DFARS shares commonalities with NIST SP 800 -171.

DFARS Clause 252.204-7012 requires third parties, including small businesses, to do the following:

  1. Protect covered defense information (CDI)
  2. Report cybersecurity risks and cyber incidents
  3. Identify malicious software
  4. Support damage assessment and risk mitigation services

CMMC requirements

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a government cybersecurity compliance standard for the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). It was created to ensure that organizations within the Defense Industrial Base create and implement an approved process to secure business operations and protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and Federal Contract Information (FCI) in the DoD supply chain. Futurex’s technology offerings can help organizations meet CMMC requirements without delay.

Robust functionality

Because government agencies and contractors are so diverse, they need a wide range of cybersecurity functionality. Futurex can create a single-source cybersecurity solution for key and certificate management, data encryption, centralized data management, disaster recovery, secure intellectual property storage, and more. With support for all common key algorithms and protocols as well as a commitment to upcoming technological innovations, agencies can pursue business success and rest assured that their critical cryptographic services are secure from cybersecurity threats.
