NASHVILLE, TN—March 10th, 2011— Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced serial to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions, today announced that all Secure IOLAN Terminal Servers are FIPS 140-2 Validated.

Any governmental agency in the USA or Canada that needs to encrypt data is required, by legislative restriction, to do so with a FIPS 140-2 Validated product.  FIPS 140-2 compliant Secure IOLAN Terminal Servers use services like SSL, HTTPS and SSH for the secure encryption of serial data sent and received on a network.
