CareView Communications Receives FIPS 140-2 Certification
LEWISVILLE, TX – August 11, 2021 – CareView Communications, Inc. (“CareView” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, today announced that its CareView Cryptographic Module was Federal Information Processing Standard Publication (FIPS 140-2) certified. The cryptographic module is incorporated in CareView’s Patient Safety System® and is used for the encryption of protected health information (PHI) and personally identifiable information (PII) for patients in health facilities.
“FIPS 140-2 certification is one way to show our commitment to security and ensuring we are good stewards with our customer’s sensitive information,” said Steve G. Johnson, CareView’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Several healthcare systems, including the U.S. Veterans Health Administration (VA), require the use of FIPS 140-2 certified modules as part of security standards and compliance.”
“The CareView Cryptographic Module will be made available for existing and future customers at no additional cost. As this certification is difficult to attain, CareView now has a competitive edge when selling to medical facilities that require the usage of FIPS 140-2 certified encryption,” said Sandra McRee, CareView’s Chief Operating Officer.
FIPS 140-2 certified modules are listed on the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP). U.S. and Canadian product procurers use this website to determine if vendors are FIPS 140-2 certified before making purchases.
