NetZoom Products sit inside the security of the Server (hardware and software) upon which they are installed. To determine FIPS Compliance for an On-Premises install you need to evaluate the Servers involved.

Our standard installation process for On-Premises products includes enabling FIPS Mode and TLS1.2 on the Application Server so a standard NetZoom on-premises installation is FIPS compliant.

NetZoom SaaS Products reside on servers housed and maintained by us. We have set our server environment to comply with the FIPS Standard so NetZoom SaaS Products do comply with FIPS Standards.
